1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, is a great place to stay in DUMBO Brooklyn. The hotel itself is beautifully constructed and the location is a prime spot for tourists to enjoy great views and an amazing park. The 1 Hotel Rooftop and Garden Bar boasts some of the best views in Brooklyn. The view of Lower Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge is simply breathtaking.
1 Hotel Rooftop and Garden Bar: The View
As part of 1 Hotel, the the rooftop and garden bar has a $20 cover fee. The prices are a little bit on the expensive side, though. There are definitely better bars in New York, but not a lot can compete with this view.
During the day it is relatively empty, so if you want great pictures with a cold beer or wine, then come at this time. A small menu is also available with finger foods such as burgers and fries. In the evening, the rooftop bar in Brooklyn transforms into a magnet for locals and international hotel guests. Please note that there is an age restriction for obvious reasons. You have to be 21 or older and must have an ID.
Being a photographer and creative in general, New York City, I think is the perfect place to be. I moved to NYC from Boston in 2013 and never looked back. Loving New York has given me the opportunity to do what I love and share those images with you all.
