Union Pool is an OG Williamsburg meeting-people party. It has three distinct spaces, with three distinct vibes - so whether you’re looking to hang in the bar area, have tacos in the outdoor area, or get down in the dance area - you have lots of opportunities to mix it up. Everyone is generally always having a good time at Union Pool, and it’s the perfect place to drunkenly meet the next person you’re going to break up with.
