    General admission ticket prices may vary by show. Concertgoers can also opt for premium access ticket add-ons for a more private, lounge-like experience.

    Ticket options and premium access

    Tickets for The Rooftop at Pier 17 are general admission, but you can also purchase ticket add-ons for a VIP experience. Here are the two available add-on options:

    Grey Goose Terrace

    The Grey Goose Terrace provides a rooftop lounge experience with views of the Brooklyn Bridge and the Lower Manhattan skyline.

    While the concert stage isn’t fully visible from the Grey Goose Terrace, guests can watch from multiple TVs while they get drinks. Guests will also have the flexibility to move from the main stage area to the terrace throughout the night.

    This ticket add-on includes the following:

    • One Grey Goose welcome cocktail for guests 21 and over
    • Access to a private terrace with lounge seating
    • Dedicated food, specialty cocktails and other drinks for purchase (to avoid longer lines at other concessions)
    • The ability to stay for an hour after the concert ends to keep the party going

    To gain access to the Grey Goose Terrace, add this event to your cart after selecting your concert’s admission ticket. If you already have tickets, you can also purchase entry at the box office before doors open or see the concierge at the top of the rooftop escalator the day of your show.

    Heineken Silver Zone

    The second add-on ticket option is for the Heineken Silver Zone, which provides access to a reserved viewing area near the stage. This is an ideal option for those who want to be as close to the action as possible.

    There’s also a dedicated bar with the full concessions menu available for purchase so you won’t need to stray far from the show for a drink or snack break.

    Like the Grey Goose Terrace add-on, you can add this event to your cart along with your admission ticket, visit the Box Office or speak to the concierge at the venue.

    Liberty Club VIP

    Interested in an unparalleled, VIP experience? Friends and partners of the Seaport have access to purchase Liberty Club VIP tickets – including Chase Sapphire Reserve cardmembers. These tickets are more exclusive, as they aren’t available to the general public through the venue.

    Liberty Club VIP is an indoor/outdoor lounge with plenty of seating options. Tickets include the following:

    • VIP entry to the venue
    • Access to the Liberty Club
    • Complimentary food
    • An open bar
    • Private restrooms
    • Access to the VIP riser to watch the show
