Vale Pool is a 60 foot outdoor pool with stunning views of the Manhattan skyline. Snacks, light fare, and cocktails are served poolside under the direction of award-winning Chef Andrew Carmellini.


Perched above Vale Park, Vale Pool overlooks Manhattan’s skyline, and is the longest outdoor hotel pool in Brooklyn and greater New York City.  All reservations are taken online, using the book now button, below.

Daybeds, pergolas, and cabanas surround the pool, and accommodate a range of group sizes. Additional seating is available on Vale Terrace, a 5,000 sq. ft. immaculately landscaped open-air venue, which provides natural shade and resides on the pool level, while not directly poolside.

PLEASE NOTE: Future reservations are available at 12pm one week prior to the reservation date.

Within that time frame if the booking engine says, “Event booking not available at this time,” it means that we are fully committed for the day you are looking to reserve.
