No cover, fun dance floor, but it's such a massive, sprawling space that it's easy to find a quiet, cozy place to actually just chill out and have a conversation as well. Really nice decor with trees and dark, warm colors. I even saw a fireplace... how cute!!! What I didn't like: when ordering drinks upstairs, I was told that they don't 'serve' tap water... So I got charged $19 for a bottle of water and a well drink. Seriously??? Plus I was told it's a $30 minimum on credit cards... give me a break! When I went to drink at the bar downstairs, the bartender (naturally) offers all of us water glasses, plus even advised me just to argue with the $30 minimum policy. So I went back upstairs and I did! Otherwise, it was an OK place, although I did think that it was over the top to have restroom attendants... Another note: please wear LOTS of deodorant when planning a night out dancing. It would really help as consideration to those around you...!

I came here as a Birthday surprise, which was cool because I've never heard/been before. I thought it was a great experience getting to explore a museum during the night. There were a lot of cool people attending and the staff were very kind. I would come back another time they hold an event. The only thing that was frustrating was not being able to explore the forest because apparently after a certain time frame they close it off. I do recommend them to announce when the last call would be to explore the exhibit.

Was just there last night for a friends Birthday and had an AMAZING time! Think The Beer Garden in Astoria but only on boats! (Yes there is more then one!) The vibe is cool, laid back, and chill. If you want to dance, you can. They have good music, and a DJ! If you just want to kick back, talk with friends have a beer and a view of NJ you can do that too. Its really the best of all worlds. The bucket of corona's takes you back for a second because I got charged $35, but honestly it really comes down to about $6 for a beer (You get 6 Beers) which I consider average in the city. (If not good considering what some places are trying to charge) I'm really excited about going back there in the day time, hanging out with friends, watching the sunset and having one of those cheese burgers. Its my new favorite place! Honestly, I think this place might have made my summer!
