A Day in Williamsburg

Restaurants, bars, attractions and so much more are just a few of the many things that make Williamsburg one of Brooklyn’s most popular neighborhoods. If you ever find yourself in this lively area, here are some of our favorite recs for a perfect day in Williamsburg!

1. PPL

189 Roebling St, Brooklyn, NY 11211

Rec by: @savinthecity

There’s no better way to start the day than by getting a cup of coffee from PPL. This green-filled coffee shop is beautifully decorated with plants surrounding every corner of the shop. Originally a clothing store, PPL was revamped as a coffee shop based on the owner’s love for coffee. You can expect to find some of your favorite go-to coffee options like espressos and cappuccinos, as well as a wide variety of teas and pastries.

2. Awoke Vintage

132 N 5th St, Brooklyn, NY 11249

Rec by: @endoftheworldvintage

Now that you’ve had your cup of coffee and you’re ready to explore Williamsburg, we recommend stopping by Awoke Vintage. This is one of our curators’ favorite spots to find those vintage pieces to fill their collection. Awoke Vintage is open 7 days a week from 10am to 9pm and if you can’t make it, no problem! They’re oftenly posting and selling via their Instagram stories, so be on the lookout!

3. L’Industrie Pizzeria

254 S 2nd St, Brooklyn, NY 11211

Rec by: @nycpizzareview

After lots of shopping and walking around, you’ll need to fuel up and recharge. If you’re looking for some quick bites, try going to L’Industrie Pizzeria. This hip pizza shop leans more towards artisanal NY style pizzas plus a variety of inventive flavor combinations. Make sure to check out their menu as they have pizzas in rotation and you can also keep up with their socials for daily specials.

4. Sauced

331 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11211

Rec by: @bougeandrouge

Although we do love the summertime, we know the summer heat can get us a little irritated at times, luckily you can find Sauced in Williamsburg to grab a drink or two and freshen up. This calm wine bar serves delicious bites and local wines plus daily food specials & live music. Make sure to get there at a good time since they only allow walk-ins.

5. Brooklyn Comedy Collective

167 Graham Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11206

Rec by: @jolieedudley

To end the day on a perfect note, check out the Brooklyn Comedy Collective. Recommended by comedian and producer of a new dog-friendly variety show “Must Love Dogs (and Comedy)”, @jolieedudley, Brooklyn Comedy Collective produces shows Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. They feature a variety of shows like improvs, standups, sketches and much more. What better way to end the night than with laugh!
