THE POOL

Spiked Slushies and Poke and Pool Time

The nearly-5,000-square-foot rooftop beach at Dream Downtown is once more open. So if you’re into tuna poke, pitchers of spiked ginger slushies, imported white sand and generally pretending you’re not in the middle of Manhattan, it might be for you. The local sand just isn’t up to par.

A Sea-Themed Banger at House of Yes

Pizza, Whiskey and Thai Inside Baby’s All Right

There’s wood-fired pizza in NoMad: Wherein you choose your own crust, then have it topped with black truffle puree, pork jowl, porcini, whatever.
There’s award-winning whiskey in a picturesque tasting room: At Kings County Distillery, where you’ll sit in an enclosed backyard with a whiskey pop.
There’s Thai inside Baby’s All Right: ... Nah, no one saw that coming.
