Venue Info

Westlight, the rooftop bar perched on the 22nd floor of Williamsburg’s William Vale Hotel, is well aware that its domineering North Brooklyn view is rare, so much so that its outdoor patio is mounted with bright yellow observation binoculars. The menu, crafted by Chef Andrew Carmellini, includes a beverage program that juxtaposes unique concoctions with standard cocktails, and a small plates selection that’s a microcosm of global street food. Though you’re undoubtedly here to drink and ogle at the 360-degree views of New York, be sure to order dessert: the peanut butter bar with salted caramel cream is spectacular.
