While I very much identify as the palest of pale kids, and tend to avoid UV rays at all costs, I do love me a nice summertime swimming pool aesthetic. And boy oh boy does The Williamsburg Hotel’s new rooftop setup deliver! (I know because I drank CBD oil cocktails there during a press preview last night! V. good feels!)
Aperol spritz vibes + CBD oil = yes, yes, a thousand times yes.
Officially open as of today, the hangout spot features a killer view of the Manhattan skyline, as well as a bar that’ll serve up all the refreshing libations one could ever hope for. (And yes, there will be snacks!) The menus are still being finalized, but expect beachy vibes – think frozen drinks, a coconut + rosé cocktail, lobster rolls, ceviche…you know, all of the best things.
“But how do I gain access to this paradise, Megan?” Well, if you wanna start catchin’ rays early, you’re gonna need to commit – only guests of the hotel will have access to this space from 9am to 11am. (And there’s no food and beverage service during those hours.)

However, post-11am you can grab a day pass Monday thru Thursday for $65 (or $40 if you wait until after 3pm), and $100 Friday thru Sunday ($60 if you wait until after 3pm). If you want daybeds and tables, you’ll need to cough up $100 on the weekdays and $150 on the weekends, or if you REALLY want to flex, large daybeds (for 4-6 people) can be reserved for $500 on the weekdays and $700 on the weekends (discounted if you’re a hotel guest), or for 8-10 people you can grab a cabana or couch for $750 on the weekdays and $1000 on the weekends. (But if you and I are in the same financial bracket, probably save the latter packages for special occasions.)
And if you need to get out of the sun, just head downstairs to Harvey! Shielded from ye olde daylight, you can enjoy food ‘n drinks in the comfort of air conditioning.
