The hotel pool at La Piscine at Hôtel Americano


Normally, hotel pools are closed to the public, but at the swimming hole at King & Grove in Williamsburg, you can don your swimsuit and get wet. We’ve also found out how to take the plunge in the Dream Downtown’s pool. Plus, check out two rooftop bars where you can hang out by the pool.

RECOMMENDED: Get outdoors in NYC

La Piscine at Hôtel Americano

  • Price band: 3/4

The pool area atop this ten-floor Chelsea boutique hotel opens to the public at 6pm (not for swimming, though toe dips are welcome); but the adjacent bar and grill welcomes patrons from noon on weekends and boasts expansive views of Manhattan and the Hudson River. Warm-weather locales inspire the menu: Dishes such as taramasalata with pita ($7) and grilled octopus salad ($18) skew Mediterranean, while the drink list includes hibiscus margaritas served by the glass ($16) or pitcher ($82). • (212-525-0000, hotel-americano.com). Pool: Daily 6pm–midnight. Bar: Mon–Fri 6pm–1am, Sat noon–1am, Sun noon–midnight.

The Pool

The Pool at King & Grove Williamsburg

This 40-by-20-foot, four-foot-deep saltwater swimming hole may not perch on a roof, but the ground-floor deck makes up for lack of altitude with the chance to do laps. The spacious terrace seats 150 and offers poolside service, with cocktails and bites. • (718-218-7500, kingandgrove.com). Daily 11am–9pm. Mon–Thu $30, Fri–Sun $45. Reservations recommended.

  1. 160 North 12th St between Bedford Ave and Berry St, Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Bar d’Eau at Trump SoHo

  • Price band: 4/4

An arching waterfall spills into the Trump SoHo’s mosaic-tiled pool, set on an L-shaped seventh-floor patio and surrounded by deck chairs and lounge seating. While swimming is forbidden in the evening, a bocce court provides a dry diversion, bolstered by haute bar snacks and cocktails. • (212-842-5500, trumpsohohotel.com). Daily 11am–10pm.

  1. 246 Spring St, (at Varick St)

The Beach at Dream Downtown

  • Price band: 3/4

The second-floor terrace of this mod Meatpacking District hotel channels the French Riviera with crisp navy-and-white chaises and umbrellas; a glass-bottomed pool, visible from the lobby downstairs; and even sand—shipped in from Montauk—in a separate beach area (keeping the water grit-free). In the evening, swimming’s off-limits, but those in need of a daytime plunge can skirt the guests-only rule by booking one of two cabanas, which seat up to ten. • (212-229-2559, marblelane.com). Daily 5:30–11pm. Cabana rental: day 10am–6pm, evening 6–11pm, all-day 10am–11pm; prices vary.

  1. 355 W 16th St, (between Eighth and Ninth Aves), 10011
