HOTEL REVIEW


ABOVE: An outdoor fireplace adds warmth to the cobbled courtyard, which also features a planted wall by Jardins de Babylone ABOVE LEFT: Illuminated architectural models are housed in glass boxes in the breakfast room LEFT: 13 of the guestrooms are oval cocoons created from LG Hi-Macs to maximise the use of space


Woodwork and Design. Most of the walls are exposed brick, others are adorned with bespoke wallpaper by Dan Funderburgh and Flavor Paper. Amenities include REVO Heritage internet radio players, and carefully curated minibars with locally sourced drinks and snacks. Andrew Tarlow is already a well-known figure on the Brooklyn dining scene, having introduced farm-to-table style eateries such as Marlow & Sons, Diner, and Roman’s to the borough. Here he has created Reynard – a ground floor restaurant and bar with wood-fired oven and grill, courtyard seating, and a daily menu featuring market-driven American fare and seasonal cocktails. The design includes Thonet chairs, retro-style tiles from Stone Source and vintage light fixtures by Works MFG. On the sixth floor, Ides bar and terrace has straightforward decor that doesn’t attempt


to compete with the stunning Manhattan and Brooklyn views. Elsewhere in the hotel, various event spaces include a main event hall, a private dining room, large guest lofts and 60-seat screening room and bar. Despite its continuing gentrification, Williamsburg continues to attract the hipsters and Wythe Avenue is one of its main draws. The Brooklyn Bowl entertainment complex is opposite the hotel. Across the street is the Kinfolk Studios art-gallery and bar. The weekly Smorgasburg food truck festival takes place a couple of blocks away. The Wythe is a sure sign that the area is evolving into one which attracts not just a cool, local crowd, but tourists as well – whether they be Manhattanites crossing the water, or, increasingly, visitors from overseas. It is a hotel that will continue to be relevant long after the hipsters have moved onto the next up-and-coming neighbourhood.
