Housed in a former factory in Williamsburg, the world capital of hipsterdom, this 72-room aerie manages to be minimalist, cozy, and convenient. Rooms maintain a warehouse feel but offer modern niceties like radiant-heated floors, surround sound (simply attach your portable music device to a wall-mounted audio cord), and a minibar stocked with local spirits. Eighteen months after its opening, the hotel is still the talk of the borough. Adding to the allure is The Ides, a sixth-floor rooftop bar where you can soak up unobstructed city views; and Reynard, the in-house restaurant outfitted with a wood-fired oven. The latest buzz surrounds the new lobby boutique, which peddles the wares of fledgling Brooklyn designers. Porkpie hats are likely, but not guaranteed.

Around the Corner
Sip cult coffee at Blue Bottle, whose cafés have earned acclaim in both New York and San Francisco. Order it siphoned: Your joe will be channeled through a mad scientist’s contraption that slow-drips each cup individually.
Grab lunch from Bedford Cheese Shop, which has specialized in serious fromage and salumi since 2003. Sandwiches here are simple yet stunning. Get there before they sell out.
Roll for gold at The Gutter, home to eight bowling lanes, 12 taps, reasonable prices, and none of the glittery trappings of those fancy alleys.
