York City Cruises Evening Cruise 24 May 2022

All aboard the new Boat Bar in York

City Cruises York, the number one sightseeing and dining cruise operator on the River Ouse, is launching a Boat Bar this weekend, situated at Lendal Bridge Landing in the heart of York during the city’s annual Christmas Market, from 12pm until 8pm until 23rd December.

This unique and stationary boat has been designed to offer a cosy and festive atmosphere, where visitors can enjoy a wide range of drinks from wine, beer, spirits, hot beverages as well as non-alcoholic options. The boat – River Palace – will be decorated for the festive season and offers a warm picturesque option for visitors wanting to escape the cold or the busy market.

City Cruises’ Boat Bar is primarily for walk-ups, but to book out the whole boat, pricing for the Boat Bar starts from £350 for groups, making it the perfect location for corporate groups to book out for pre-drink events before their Christmas parties. The time slot is guaranteed for 90 minutes and these bookings include a £100 bar tab or boarding drinks and additional bar snacks.

Chris Pegg, Commercial and Marketing Manager, City Cruises, says: “With the launch of our Boat Bar we can offer a unique experience with drinks on the River Ouse, which is promised to be an experience to remember. The Boat Bar is a great option for visitors to escape the York Christmas Market and stay in the warm. We know consumers are always on the lookout for unique venues and Christmas experiences and we’re confident our Boat Bar will provide just that to visitors.”

City Cruises York offers private charter cruises that are perfect for corporate functions, special events and parties all year round, but with the festive season around the corner, hiring out a City Cruises boat provides a special and fully customisable night from the choice of music, décor and catering options.
