The Moxy Hotel in Williamsburg does a decent job of blending into its surroundings. But once you get to the rooftop, you’ll feel like you’re in another zip code. Unlike most bars in the neighborhood, Lillistar is a glamorous place where you can impress some out-of-towners or enjoy a few Southeast Asian snacks with a friend who unironically likes Tao. The rooftop has a sprawling outdoor patio, as well as a tropical-themed indoor area with potted plants, a DJ booth, and funky, mismatched furniture. Cocktails are around $18, but they’re fun and interesting—and the impressive view is worth a slight premium. Try the daiquiri garnished with edible glitter, and eat some lumpia while you catch a sunset.
