The Hoxton WilliamsburgWhy we love it: Hip UK hospitality in Brooklyn’s most bustling neighborhood
- Two al fresco dining options
- Local flair and wares showcased in every room
- An ultra-cool and comfortable aesthetic from two UK design icons
This British brand has a knack for opening doors in only the coolest of neighborhoods—first in London’s notoriously hip Shoreditch, and now in Brooklyn’s always abuzz Williamsburg (making it the company’s first stateside property). It’s an intentional move—the surrounding area informs much of the hotel’s aesthetic, as does the building itself. For Williamsburg that would be the former Rosenwach factory, responsible for the iconic wooden towers that scatter the New York skyline. Today it houses 175 rooms, each one with locally made ceramics, bespoke bedding by Brooklyn’s Dusen Dusen, and books curated by local residents. Mid-century-meets-urban vibes prevail with modern brass details, raw concrete ceilings, and mohair headboards, an approach from design team Ennismore and Soho House that carries through to the public spaces, as well. Discover them most notably at Klein’s, a lobby-level restaurant situated in the site’s original brick carriage house that serves American-inspired fare around the clock. When warmer months hit, pay a visit to Backyard and Summerly, two al fresco dining and drinking options offering everything one could ask for on a balmy day: Meat Hook sausages, s’mores sandwiches, and never-ending rounds of ping pong.
