Bring On The Heat! Renovate Yourself In A Saltwater Pool, NYC


The heat comes to NYC, and now you need refreshment. Long time readers of RenovatingNYC know we have a strong affinity for rooftop spaces and great places to cool off.  This is where we get off topic from our love for renovation and remodeling.  It’s time to renovate ourselves!



From a recent Thrillist post we found a great SALTWATER! pool and rooftop bar combination located at the King & Grove Hotel in Williamsburg.


Here’s what Andrew Zimmer had to say:

Now that the McCarren Park pool is back to being an actual pool, the parties will just have to take place on a rooftop high above it, thanks to another actual pool — the one atop King & Grove Hotel in Williamsburg. It’s been undergoing a lot of changes recently and, perhaps the most important, is the redesign and relaunch of its rooftop bar now known as Upper Elm (Elm is the Paul Liebrandt-captained resto opening on the ground level later this Summer), followed very closely by the reopening of its saltwater pool, which makes it just like going to the beach, except, you know, none of that annoying sand.


Get refreshed! The details:
