WE CRAFTED A FUN-FILLED DAY FOR YOU

Over the years, Williamsburg just keeps getting hipper. It is filled with great shopping, new restaurants+bars and lots of entertaining activities. So if you’re looking for neighborhood to wander…look no further! We have decided that Williamsburg is the place for your next weekend adventure and here is how you could spend it –

 

CAFFEINE FIRST (ALWAYS) 

If you’re getting an early start, make sure you stop by one of these cafes/coffee shops that we adore –

DEVOCIÓN

69 Grand St 

Some may say that we’re obsessed with coffee…others may say that we are OBSESSED with DevociónWe absolutely fell in love with their brews and beautiful cafe in Williamsburg, which is how we knew that we had to make our own custom blend to serve at by CHLOE. Sourced locally from Colombia, this place brews and sells some of the freshest coffee in the game. Everything about the whole experience is fresh and fantastic. Vaminos!

MATCHABAR

93 Wythe Ave 

We’re pretty sure you’ve heard about the matcha craze by now…matcha, matcha, matcha! It’s basically the superwoman of green teas and it’s freakin’ amazing. Which brings us to this place…MatchaBar, which was created by two very smart brothers who decided to open New York’s first matcha-centric cafe. Go and get an Iced Matcha Latte or Matchaccino (yes, that’s a thing) – you won’t regret it.

(VEGAN) GRUB

A few food stops to make sure that no one gets hangry on your day of adventures –

LITTLE CHOC APOTHECARY

141 Havemeyer St

Hit up this homey little café for sweet and savory vegan crepes plus baked goods, coffee, juices and loads of different kinds of teas. It is adorable and oh so tasty.

WILD GINGER

182 N 10th St

Craving Thai? Wild Ginger serves up some delicious vegan Asian-style dishes in a really cozy+relaxed atmosphere. Lots of options. Fast service. Get your Thai-fix here, forsure.

BY CHLOE. WILLIAMSBURG

171 N 3rd St

You read that right! We’re spreading like wildfire and now you can hop on over to by CHLOE. Williamsburg! Come by whenever and enjoy some of your favorite vegan treats. Plus, we even made something shiny and NEW for you Brooklynites! So bring some friends and come say HELLO!

 

GETTING SOME VITAMIN C

One of the best things about Williamsburg is that it’s on the water with a perfect view of Manhattan, which makes it easy to spend your day outside (weather permitting)!

EAST RIVER FERRY

Kent Ave + N 6th St

While the ferry does go to Manhattan, you can take it from South Williamsburg to North Williamsburg – if you want to stay in the ‘hood. This is a fun/funky way to see Williamsburg and do something a little different for a change!

MCCARREN PARK

776 Lorimer St

If you want to spend some time relaxing, grab a book + your headphones (and some treats from by CHLOE. Williamsburg) and head over to McCarren Park. Its’s always full of locals walking their dogs, playing sports, and hanging out on the expansive lawn. Plus, if you want to totally veg out, this park gets an A+ for people watching.

 

EXPERIENCING THE ARTS

When you decide you’ve had enough of the outdoors…

ROUGH TRADE NYC

64 N 9th St

Rough Trade is a large (and awesome) record store in Williamsburg. It’s an independent record store where you can find everything from obscure to mainstream CD’s and vinyl. For those of us who still listen to ALBUMS or CDs…this place rocks. The best part is that it’s also a concert venue and bar so you should check out the schedule ahead of time and try to catch a show here!

SIDESHOW GALLERY

319 Bedford Ave

Enjoy a walk through this beautiful contemporary art gallery featuring the work of both emerging artists and mid-career artists in a variety of media. Sideshow Gallery is always a great stop…or destination.

NITEHAWK CINEMA

136 Metropolitan Ave

A great way to end the day (in Williamsburg) is to wind down with a movie. Not just anywhere though. The Nitehawk Cinema screens movies with global fare and also serves craft cocktails to your seat. WARNING: Once you come here for a movie (and food and drinks) you may never be OKAY with watching a flick at home again. But it is a risk that we encourage you to take. We L-O-V-E this place.

 

You might not be able to see all of Williamsburg in one day, but this a good place to start! Happy exploring and we can’t wait to see your faces in BK!
