Year round
Yes (on lower floor)


A dynamic menu and sweeping views of New York City.

Hold on to your V's and W's: Westlight is a NYC rooftop bar, located on the 22nd floor of The William Vale in trendy Williamsburg. And it comes with a View.

From here you’ll get sweeping city views over the famous Manhattan skyline, East River and the surrounding buildings in Brooklyn. Just incredible!

The rooftop is run by the Chef Andrew Carmelllini’s NoHo Hospitality Group, and offers a dynamic menu with both classic and original cocktails, alongside a long list of wines, craft beer, rare spirits and some small plates with inspration of global street food. A bit on the pricey side, but all made with care and of really good quality.

Westlight NYC is considerd as one of the best rooftop bars in Brooklyn, and also a very popular choice among the best rooftops in New York. So if you wanna make sure to get a table, reservations are highly recommended. Otherwise there is quite alot of space for standing out on the terrace, and with a bit of waiting you might get a table (at least on a weekday.)

This is a perfect spot for some early evening cocktails, with a mixed crowd trying to catch the amazing sunset over Manhattan. As the night wears on the atmosphere usually rises to more vibrant, with a younger and chic crowd enjoying Brooklyn under the stars.

With both indoor and outdoor seating, as well as turning into a cosy Winter Village during the colder months, Westlight is available for rooftop fun year-round.
