In the age of COVID-19 and social distancing, outdoor space is king. Talk Story, the new open-air tropical cocktail bar and eatery on the rooftop of Williamsburg’s McCarren Hotel, takes its name from the Hawaiian phrase “Talk Story,” meaning that life is about hanging out and creating memories. This oasis high above the Brooklyn neighborhood has an approachable, boho vibe with skyline views of Manhattan and open-air breezes.
Also notable, it has a fantastic team of acclaimed female bartenders that are led by award-winning mixologist Crystal Chasse, the bar and eatery’s beverage director.
