Incoming Williamsburg Hotel Reveals Plans to Put a Bar in a Water Tower

The bar is one of six or so that a new hotel is planning to build.

Guests at The Night Heron climbed 12 flights of stairs and crawled through a trap door to get to the bar.

Hotel developer Toby Moskovits is planning to open an 150-room hotel just down the street from the Wythe Hotel, and with it the most twee bar to ever come to the hipster capital of NYC. If the hotel gets the SLA sign-off, it will host a restaurant and six or so bars intimate bars including one that looks like a grand ballroom, a cellar bar, and (drumroll), a 30-seat bar inside a water tower on the hotel's roof. It's not the first time someone's gone for this stunt: Urban Explorers hosted an invite only pop-up called The Night Heron in a Chelsea water tower in 2013. The key difference here is that the hotel is still under construction, so any water tower with a bar in it there will be a faux water tower, probably nothing like the rickety old wooden one that Night Heron guests had to climb their way into. In any case, the "water tower" would hold about 30. 63 North 10th Street, Williamsburg
