The venue

Pier Sixty

Pier Sixty, The Lighthouse & Current have become landmarks for special events in New York City. Following Pier Sixty’s enormous success shortly after its opening in 1998, the business soon expanded by acquiring its second unique waterfront venue, The Lighthouse, in 2000. Opened in 2015, Current, the newest venue, is the standard for special events and celebrations on the city waterfront.
