ZEALnyc, January 24, 2017
Do you ever think 'where can I get a great glass of wine, good food AND hear great music?' Well, City Winery has got you covered. In 2008, Michael Dorf (founder of the Knitting Factory) opened City Winery (155 Varick Street) as a way to showcase two of his passions -- wine and music. The result has been a booming success, with satellite locations opening in Chicago, Nashville, Atlanta, and one to open shortly in Boston. City Winery has been so successful that the SoHo establishment opened a smaller offshoot this past summer--City Vineyard at 233 West Street, Pier 26 on the Hudson River.
Since its inception, City Winery has regularly been hosting scheduled performances of jazz and pop performers, and now as a special treat they are instituting a wintertime concert series--Voices on the Hudson--where every Tuesday and Wednesday from January 24th through mid-April, the City Vineyard will transform into a cozy, intimate music venue where acclaimed national touring artists will perform in the glass-enclosed eatery against the gorgeous background of the Hudson River and the downtown NYC skyline. The series will feature such artists as John Hammond, Diane Birch, and Shawn Mullins, to name only a few.
The shows will be limited to 100 guests who will also be able to enjoy a special winter bistro menu and a full bar before, during and after the show. Tickets are $20 per show with general admission seating -- first come first served. City Vineyard opens at 4pm (Happy hour is open to the public from 4-6pm) and shows begin at 8:30pm.
