WILLIAMSBURG — Joe Carroll and Francesco Panella, who recently opened fern bar Oleanders at the McCaren Hotel, are opening Xanadu today on the hotel's roof, which was once affiliated with Paul Liebrandt's The Elm.

To drink, the bar offers a decent selection of sparking whites and a handful of beers, ciders, and cocktails like a yuzu margarita. Status: Certified open. 160 North 12th Street.
