To Do Wednesday: High Watermark

An Alternative View - The 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Rosario Dawson.

Escape the sizzling, sweltering streets at the grand opening of the Watermark Bar, where there will be booze-infused snow cones, music by deejay/model/girl-about-town Cory Kennedy and guests like Rosario Dawson. Right next door to the South Street Seaport, Watermark’s 3,500 square feet of indoor and outdoor space on the East River’s Pier 15 boast a panoramic view of New York Harbor and Brooklyn. Grab a deck chair and catch the breeze outside under a blanket of high-tech red lights with a frozen blood orange margarita and a Maine lobster roll.

Pier 15 at Maiden Lane, South Street, (212) 742-8200, 8-11pm, by invitation only.
