Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg is the mothership of Brooklyn’s new spate of luxurious industrial-chic hotels. When it opened in 2012, the repurposed red-brick building—a former cask and barrel workshop dating from 1901—was one of only about 20 hotels nationwide that had once been factories. The spacious guest rooms reflect this heritage, with exposed brick, warehouse windows and cast-iron columns. Despite the area’s rapid gentrification and the addition of three more hotels within a two-mile radius in the decade since, Wythe still delivers. Bar Blondeau, on the sixth floor, opened in 2021 to much applause. Run by the same team behind Le Crocodile, the French brasserie on the hotel’s ground floor, the rooftop bar features green velvet banquettes, golden lighting and an outdoor terrace with views over the Manhattan skyline.
