The Williamsburg Hotel
A striking bar dominates the cellar floor. Created from antique picture frames laid in a chevron pattern, the bar includes a vibrant installation made up of thousands of coloured threads designed by a local street artist Eric Rieger. The bar is flanked with cosy seating areas, luxurious banquettes and armchairs, and a large fireplace in one corner.
