The Rusty Knot

To say the décor at The Rusty Knot, located on the West Side Highway, is kitsch, would be a grave understatement. Here, you’ll find their eponymous cocktail – essentially a frozen mojito – served in a hard plastic cup (with a plastic mermaid as garnish) that’s perfect in warmer months. The drink menu also includes other tiki-esque classics, like Singapore Slings and Mai Tais. No matter the time of year, it’s a great place to watch the sunset on the Hudson, especially when you’re in need of a no-frills environment.
