Brooklyn’s and I truly believe NYC’s newest and hottest (not because it’s summer) rooftop has officially been open for only a little over a week, and it’s already Instagram worthy on so many levels.
The Williamsburg Hotel officially opened their rooftop to the public on Friday July 13th and there’s nothing scary about it. It’s been a long time coming, as the hotel itself and it’s full-service restaurant Harvey on the ground level has since been open.
We got a chance to preview the spot, and the spanky new space boasts a pool, cabanas, daybeds, a full bar and unobstructed views of the entire Manhattan skyline. I know you hear this all the time, but no lie, you gotta see it for yourself to see what I mean, and get ready to be captivated!
The rooftop menu offers smaller and lighter bites than it’s restaurant. Created by Executive Chef Nic Caicedo, options include Shrimp Ceviche (leche de tigre, tomato salsa), Farro Salad (mango, cilantro, chickpeas, passionfruit and basil vinaigrette), Lobster Roll (served in a housemade bun from Brooklyn Bread Lab) and a few others.
The seasonal cocktail menu is created by Beverage Director Rael Petit, offering a curated selection of beer and wine, cocktails and frozen drinks. A special CBD ‘pina colada’ like cocktail is made with one of The Alchemist’s Kitchen’s CBD oil. There is also a delicious rose and rum cocktail served in a coconut.
If you would like to chill by the pool during the daytime hours, and/or enjoy a few summertime cocktails at night, all while taking in the SPECTACULAR views, be sure to purchase a day pass for the daytime hours.
There’s also a special Friday Night Pool Party,called SPLASH
