    Awesome views, great cocktails, stylish vibe. Make sure to dress in your hipster finest, and if you can, reserve a table rather than hovering over the bar.

    Amazing view of Manhattan from the bar. The drinks are pricey but it's worth a visit, especially at sunset. The barman was grumpy though.

    As awesome as Manhattan is, you can't really see Manhattan from Manhattan. The Ides has a view of the island that can't be beat. Go during the gets way too "nightclubby" at night. Read more

    There's no denying these are some of the best views (of Manhattan) in Brooklyn. That said, the vibe is bro-y, and the drinks are weak. Takeaway: bring a visitor here for one drink, then split.

    Nice hotel rooftop bar in Brooklyn with an amazing view on Manhattan.

    A bit expensive but the view towards Manhattan is very nice, especially during sunset. Enjoy it with a cocktail in the terrace sitting in a chaise longue.

    Keep your fingers crossed that there’s no line, because the view from the rooftop is amazing! All the staff are BEAUTIFUL, sweet and attentive. Try the Chihuahua.

    The Ides is one of the most of the Instagrammable locations in the borough. Don’t miss the wine list from the hotel’s star sommelier, Lee Campbell, who has a knack for finding quirky, offbeat wines. Read more

    Small rooftop with laid back atmosphere, but great view of Manhattan skyline. Come by just before sunset then watch the city lights go up.

    Gorgeous view of the skyline, very friendly staff and variety of drinks. Prices are what they are since it's a hotel and tourist spot.

    Good place to enjoy the view or have an anxiety attack, depending on mood. Very pretty, upscale, but not trashy/club crowd. Didn't imbibe, but it's a very nice place with great views. Bring friends.

    Great rooftop bar in Wythe Hotel Williamsburg, amazing views to Manhattan by night! On late Saturday night it was not packed, bubbly was reasonably priced and the she played music like The Smiths. 👌

    Incredible view. My Manhattan was made with precision. Great to have a DJ early in the evening - makes a difference!

    Stunning views, great drinks. Music is not to loud so it’s easy to carry a conversation while enjoying the skyline

    The place is amazing, beautiful view and the cocktails are worth coming from anywhere in NYC. Only disappointing point: waiters at the bar are probably the rudest I found in the whole city.

    Show up early for the awe-inspiring view of Brooklyn and Manhattan. The bar opens at 5 p.m. and gets full quickly, and then the velvet rope comes in to play unless the hostess likes you.

    Hip bar that overlooks different parts of the city. The outdoor area is great during summer. Nice cocktails and friendly staff. Super cozy.

    Bf and I finally decided to check out the hype. Overall it was a good experience. Having been to many rooftop bars in Manhattan, I wasn't wow-ed by either the drink or the view

    Great skyline views but gonna tough to retain its position with all the challenger hotels on the rise. Tall ball is a lovely strong drink

    Service shocking! We sat down at the bar and there where extra stools for us. On the second round the waitress tried to take two without asking one from my pregnant wife. But great coctails and view..

    Beautiful view of Manhattan to sip your cocktail with. Dine at the restaurant beforehand to avoid the line to get to the rooftop bar on Saturday nights.

    Salty dogs and dark and stormies. They use fever tree tonic water which makes for extra delicious G&Ts.

    Spent bank holiday Monday here in the sun with some great cocktails and an incredible view. Only one bartender so he was very busy but worth the wait.

    The Ides, rooftop bar, fetches a line through the lobby most nights. Gratuity is incl. $16-18 cocktails (like the appropriately named Brooklyn View) To skip the line, reserve a group spot for eight+

    Been here 5+ times
    The menu is great. Execution and bartending... Not so much. That being said the space makes up for the faults of the staff. If they can get the kinks worked out this would be THE place to go in WB.

    Decent small bites and drinks. There was a DJ even on a random tuesday nite, fun vibe. But the best part is the amazing view of manhattan!

    Great views from the top floor of the wythe hotel. Cocktails are good but not amazing. Place gets super crowded.

    It's a hot spot on weekends, and crowded---its more than worth it to go early and have that memorable view all to yourself. Read more

    A great bar, but the view alone is worth the trip and worth a wait as there can be a queue to get in

    Come for the spectacular view and a $20 cocktail. Mostly the view. Get a $3 PBR across the street.

    The view is unbeatable here. Very posh Brooklyn crowd that gave me the quintessential Willysburg experience.

    I went here when they first opened up and you didn't have to wait to get in, now expect a wait...especially of it's nice out!

    Another rooftop! this one's got a stellar view. Check this place out before or after a great show at the Music Hall in Williamsburg. Thank us later ;)

    The decor outside of Ides is pretty minimal, with simple metal tables on a gray-tiled deck, but that's not deterring the crowds, and it offers no distraction to the views of Manhattan. Read more

    They make you wait on purpose a lot too excessively for the amount of ppl that was actually on the rooftop. You would think they would want it to be a little bit more filled at least.

    When you're turning into Brewer's Row from Bedford Ave., you know you're almost there! Stop at Brooklyn Brewery on your way, if its Saturday or Sunday (for a bigger brew selection).

    Probably the best rooftop option in New York for ones who love unpretentious experience and want to avoid fancy dress code

    The view is great, but I was sad that the outdoor balcony didn't go all the way around. Prices in the bar is 11 dollars and up. I am glad I went there but I'll not come back.
