A Staycation in Williamsburg—With a Pool!

Experience the best of Billyburg in one easy overnight.

Cuisine that belongs in a museum, unreal nail designs, old-school retrospectives: An entire staycation’s worth of culturally hip and artsy activities is at your fingertips in the neighborhood for trendsetters, Williamsburg.

CHECK IN: At the William Vale

An incredible 60-foot outdoor pool and one of the best rooftop bars in the borough make the Vale one of our favorite staycation spots. 111 North 12th Street

EAT: Brunch at Sunday in Brooklyn

Don’t worry, you can enjoy chef Jaime Young’s elevated take on the classic egg and cheese sandwich any day of the week. 348 Wythe Avenue

RELAX: With Modern Manis and Pedis at Paintbucket

You’ll never go back to your regular nail salon after visiting this supercool shop, where you’ll leave with literal works of art on each of your fingers and toes. Plus, free Prosecco with every treatment? Nailed it. 204 Wythe Avenue

WATCH: The Latest Blockbuster at Nitehawk Cinema

Who goes to a movie theater while on vacation? Well, everyone in Williamsburg, because Nitehawk isn’t so much a cinema as it is a unique film-watching experience. It offers full-service food and drinks, live performances, and in-person filmmaker panels. 136 Metropolitan Avenue

DINE: On Edible Works of Art at Aska

There are countless restaurants with upstanding bites and flavors throughout Williamsburg, but when pressed to choose just one, we recommend going with this two-time Michelin-star winner. And it’s well deserved, with seasonal-inspired dished, authentic Scandinavian fare, and a cellar bar worthy of audible oohs and aahs. 47 South 5th Street
