Any new Williamsburg rooftop hotel bar has some tough acts to follow given the reputation and views at veteran hotspots like The Ides at the Wythe hotel and the doesn’t-even-need-a-name rooftop bar at the McCarren Hotel and Pool. The Williamsburg Hotel at 96 Wythe Avenue, however, has decided they’re not taking any chances and created an attention-grabbing rooftop party spot that resembles a classic New York City water tank, wrapped in glass. Dubbed The Water Tower bar, of course, the chic new nightclub and lounge officially opened on November 16.
While it’s not an actual water tower–so no “squirrel martini” on the menu–it certainly looks like one. The new addition was constructed with industrial materials like steel, glass, and brass and provides revelers with unobstructed views of the Manhattan skyline through floor-to-ceiling windows.
It’s accessible via a VIP elevator. Inside are cozy sofas and colorful murals painted by a local artist. On the menu are creative cocktails and “luxe bites” like white truffle grilled cheese and caviar tastings. And while the list of DJs rotates nightly, the space, alas, does not.
