I’m a Williamsburg local, but can you believe? Last night was my first “official” visit to Westlight, the popular rooftop bar/lounge at The William Vale Hotel, an iconic Williamsburg hotel.
I’ve been here very briefly just once, just to look at the view for about 5 minutes, and left without having any drinks because the place was too packed. And whenever I tried to visit after that, the line to the rooftop was always insanely long, which turned me off each time completely.
But last night, I tried again with a couple of my co-workers and was so happy to find out there was no line at all! Yay, finally! 🤣 We couldn’t get a table outside (saved for people who had made reservations ahead of time, obviously #SMH😑) but we could get a decent table inside. I just stayed inside instead of going outside to enjoy the view, because staying inside was honestly enough.
