An immense 3,500 square footage of space, Yachty’s features a retractable canopy over 16 feet tall with retractable roof and bi-foldable, therefore allowing the indoor space to further interact with the exterior while maximizing its airy appearance. The restaurant also features a 22 feet long teak and holly centered bar displaying the American flag hung from a natural wood trellis above, 2 food containers cladded with blond cedar shingles, large dining area with deuces as well as community tables, and several blue and white striped private cabanas with 180 degrees view of the Hudson River and New Jersey.
Beyond its name and waterfront location, by adding a few minor details such as Adirondack chairs spread throughout the space, “Grass Lounge” area with marine theme umbrella covered seating and a hammock over a small sandpit and large greenery walls as background, provides the opportunity for the perfect “Instagrammable” moment.
