Sleep Beneath Brooklyn's Water Tower Bar From $250/Night

New, 1 comment

Amidst the hotel boom bringing 2,600 rooms to Brooklyn comes the Williamsburg Hotel, which Bedford + Bowery reports will open later this year and ask from $250 a night. Along with the announcement comes a first rendering of the hotel's hip guest rooms that are designed by Michaelis Boyd. The hotel, which will stand seven stories at the corner of North 10th Street and Wythe Avenue and have 150 rooms, has made headlines for its rooftop water tower bar which will hold a measly 50 people.

The hotel will also have a 400-person ballroom, an underground club, a restaurant, and a rooftop pool with a bar. If this sounds and looks like every other Williamsburg hotel, that's because it kind of is, but the hotel has brought on veteran employees of the Bowery and Standard hotels to ensure that, as per a press release quoted by B+B, "this venture isn't just another Brooklyn hotel trying not to be just another Brooklyn hotel." Ah, got it.


↑ The water tower bar won't be as covert as other water tower bars, but it still looks like it will be cool.


↑ The hotel's underground bar.


↑ The hotel's restaurant will be off of the lobby, have seating for 180 people, and have outdoor seating.
