Westlight

at The William Vale

111 N 12th St 22nd Floor

Westlight is a 22nd-floor rooftop bar created by Chef Andrew Carmellini and his team, providing sweeping vistas of New York’s Manhattan skyline. The venue, located atop The William Vale boutique hotel on 12 Street, Brooklyn, takes a step back from the bustle of the commercial heart of the city, allowing guests to admire it from a respectable distance. 

Andrew Carmellini designed the restaurant to reflect the best of street food available in New York, paired with a variety of classic cocktails, rare spirits, and high-quality wines. The space itself is surprisingly vast, with guests able to sit outside in direct sunlight or peer out over the skyscrapers from the glass-lined dining room next door. 

Carmellini, who worked at The Dutch, Bar Primi and many other top culinary establishments, directs menu concepts at Westlight boutique bar. Expect oysters, handmade burgers, specialty ribs, and unique dipping sauces. The aim isn’t fine dining but to create a casually elegant atmosphere, well away from the buzz of Manhattan. Would you like a pleasant evening meal with views over the Big Apple?
