Some of the finest classical musicians perform at the intimate Barge Music venue at ticket prices that are a fraction of concert halls prices. We Brooklyn locals and some savvy tourists know that this gorgeous space offers air conditioned views of Manhattan -- particularly striking...More

Visited end October with a lovely autumnal vibe in surrounding Brooklyn Bridge Park. Great location for River Cafe and Ice cream factory. Wonderful backdrop to hear the Manhattan Symphony play Beethoven amongst others. Just a little different to everything else on offer. Great experience.

I took a friend visiting NYC, it's a nice change from all the touristy things, very local. Amazing musicians and music and gorgeous views of the city and Brooklyn.

On the Brooklyn waterfront, inside a barge which sways to the water currents, this is a venue which promises innovative musical efforts. Not for the close minded classical in heart.

Parked just under the Brooklyn end of the Brooklyn Bridge, Bargemusic is, in fact, a barge that can accommodate an audience of about 60. It offers stunning views of Manhattan, exquisite music, and an atmosphere of quiet, unpretentious pleasure. Either before or after, you can...More

Such a lovely setting for chamber music. The audience was friendly and the players really connected personally. The view is lovely. It is a bit disconcerting that the barge rocks and rolls on the water throughout the evening. If you are prone to dizziness or...More

It has been years since I last visited the Barge Music. The area has become a beautiful setting with plenty of restaurants. The music at the Barge is top class. The barge was an actual coffee barge that was converted into a classical music setting....More

Sitting on a boat, enjoying the most beautiful classical music with 60 or 70 other people, gently swaying on the river is an unique experience. Visited a Barge concert for the second time (first time was five years ago), and it was another great pleasure....More

What is the dress for this venue? Formal? Casual? Dark jeans and a blazer?

The times I've gone people ranged from business casual to formal. I think you'd feel comfortable in anything's for more substantial than shorts or a bathing suit. Dark jeans and a blazer would be fine.
Does the barge move during the concert or stay docked?

Remains docked always.
