Westlight review image

Westlight

$$$$(718) 307-7100
Hours:SUNDAY4:00PM to 12:00AM

This fancy rooftop bar on top of the even fancier William Vale hotel in Brooklyn feels like something you would find in Manhattan. That said, this is where you'll find some of the best views in the entire city, and the food and drinks are actually pretty good. Celebrate a birthday here, or bring an out-of-towner who doesn’t understand the difference between Brooklyn and Manhattan anyway. They’ll be impressed. Make a reservation in advance if you want to skip the line.

The only real reason to fuss over getting a table at Lilia is their simple, perfect pasta.

Mister Dips

Mister Dips is a little trailer in a Williamsburg park where you can pick up a burger, some ice cream, and a thing of waffle fries covered in cheese.

A.R.T. Nomad

A.R.T. is the rooftop bar at the Arlo Nomad, and it’s pretty low-key for how nice the views are. Stop by for a drink before a show at MSG.
