The TL;DR on LoHi is that it’s just a f*cking big rooftop bar in the industrial part of East Williamsburg that could also be correctly categorized as Bushwick. And in a city where big rooftops are rare, that’s a good enough reason to come here - ideally during the day with a group and several rounds of chuggable hibiscus mezcal cocktails.

There are two Garrets in the city, and the one on the west side is a speakeasy above a Five Guys. It’s a cool space, but expect a crowd and top-40.

Elsie is a rooftop bar a block from Times Square, and it’s a surprisingly nice place to get a cocktail. Stop by after work, and maybe bring your boss.
