NYC’s most exhilarating night party is popping up on the Hudson!

The three-story boat at Pier 81 serving up tequila and Mexican-inspired street food on the Hudson River is now open after dark. Introducing La Barca After Darka—a nighttime fiesta!

With custom artwork by Tlisza Jaurique, the first Mexican-American woman to exhibit at the Met, an incredible top deck for guests to take in the scenery, and most notably, an expansive agave-based spirits menu, the unique dining experience is only adding to the fun.

Starting this month, La Barca Cantina will host La Barca After Darka every Thursday night showcasing DJs, dancing, and of course tequila!

Guests can climb aboard the yacht for premium mezcal and glowing skyline views all in one unforgettable night. Enjoy deep house and latina house music from Puerto Rican artist DJ SONI withanEYE and work up an appetite for some late night bites from their special night menu including esquites, guacamole, and their house-blend snack mix.

Boarding begins at 10 p.m. and guests will sail from 11 p.m. – 1 a.m. Tickets are $35.

Same as the day cruises, customers must purchase a boarding pass to enter onto the boat. You can get yours here.
