Summerly is the rooftop bar at The Hoxton in Williamsburg, and it kind of feels like a J Crew advertisement or an idealized version of Cape Cod. It has potted plants, strings of lights, and floral bar stools, and the view is incredible. The menu has things like a burger, a few different kinds of pasta, and a lobster roll - but the food is mostly average, so we wouldn’t suggest a full meal here. Stop by for drinks on a particularly nice day, and take a few pictures of the Manhattan skyline. You’ll feel like a tourist, but you’ll also have a very nice picture.
