This Water Tower bar opened in 2018 atop the Williamsburg Hotel. After you’ve climbed the winding steel staircase to get inside, you’re greeted with an electrically decorated window-encased room that offers patrons 360-degree views of Manhattan and Brooklyn. The menu features a short list of classic cocktails, beer, and wine. See more hidden bars of Brooklyn here!
