The Water Club is an American traditional cuisine event venue moored on a barge on the East River at East 30th Street (enter on East 23rd Street; adjacent to the FDR Drive and south of the East 34th Street Heliport) in Murray Hill, in Manhattan, New York City.[2][3][4][5]

The venue, whose view faces Queens, serves classic American cuisine and seafood.[6][7]

The space is leased from the city's economic development corporation, and the rent is determined by the amount of revenue. The New York City Comptroller issued a report in 2011 alleging that the Water Club was understating its revenue by failing to record some cash sales.[8]

From its opening in 1982 through 2017, The Water Club was operated as a restaurant. Since early 2018 the restaurant has closed, and the barge is now used exclusively as a venue for private events.
