Summerly is the rooftop bar at The Hoxton in Williamsburg, and it kind of feels like a J Crew advertisement or an idealized version of Cape Cod. It has potted plants, strings of lights, and floral bar stools, and the view is incredible. The menu has things like a burger, a few different kinds of pasta, and a lobster roll - but the food is mostly average, so we wouldn’t suggest a full meal here. Stop by for drinks on a particularly nice day, and take a few pictures of the Manhattan skyline. You’ll feel like a tourist, but you’ll also have a very nice picture.

Lavender Lake could get away with being a just great bar with a large outdoor patio. However, it scores extra points from us for putting some care into curating a small but solid selection of bar snacks and entree sized plates.

The Commodore is bad. Bad because merely looking at the food here will jack up your cholesterol thirty points, and worse because everything is so good that you’ll crave it all the time.
