Located in close proximity to many of the great Brooklyn restaurants in the area, NU Hotel also features its own bar and lounge, Misdemeanor, conveniently located in the lobby of NU Hotel. Light, airy and the perfect mix of urban cool and laidback, Misdemeanor is among the fun restaurants of NYC from which to grab a happy hour cocktail and light bite to eat, especially before catching a show at the nearby Barclays Center. During the warmer months, Misdemeanor opens onto the street to become one of the largest sidewalk cafes in downtown Brooklyn and one of the best spots for people watching—it feels like the place to be, without really trying.

About the Location

NU Hotel is located in downtown Brooklyn in walking distance to four great Brooklyn neighborhoods, including Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill, Park Slope, and Prospect Heights. Wander south past the pristine 19th century brownstones and artist warehouses to explore local bars, restaurants, and shops. Walk or bike toward Prospect Park, Brooklyn’s version of Central Park, to discover the Brooklyn Museum and Brooklyn Botanic Garden, or go a bit further to find everything from Hasidic wig makers to Caribbean music shops. Circle back around toward downtown Brooklyn and DUMBO for a bit of high-end retail shopping and dining, and perhaps catch a concert or game at the Barclays Center afterward. Last but not least, don’t forget a visit to the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, with its spectacular views of Manhattan crowning it all.
