As Brooklynites, we will be the first to tell you that there are many things to do in downtown Brooklyn and we have so much more to offer than our neighboring boroughs. Brooklyn has a rich history, built on the backbone of the hard working immigrant – and it is paying off! Brooklyn has become a major hub of culture, art, gastronomy and shopping making some of Brooklyn’s neighborhoods the most up-and-coming in New York City. But above all else, what makes Brooklyn thrive is the borough’s high sense of community.

Our core values are centered on the locals in our storied neighborhoods, sharing their history, tradition and culture. To bring our values to life, NU Hotel has partnered with several Brooklyn companies to bring you, our guest, the most authentic Brooklyn experience possible.

Brewklyn Grind


The search for the perfect cup of coffee is over with the arrival of Brewklyn Grind.  This Red Hook shop was founded by three brothers who roasted their first batch in their Brooklyn apartment. This hobby quickly became a delicious obsession that we savor each morning. All their coffee is made from 100% certified Arabica beans, roasted in small batches – guaranteeing freshness in every bag.

Nu Hotel Brooklyn has the privilege to serve their coffee with our complimentary breakfast.

Brooklyn Winery

Brooklyn Winery is an urban winery that crafts boutique small batch wine right in our backyard. NU Hotel is the only hotel in Brooklyn allowed to serve their product – and we couldn’t be more honored. Below is list of some of the wines that you can taste in our Brooklyn boutique hotel:

  • Stainless Steel Aged Riesling – Captures the essence of Riesling with tropical aromatics
  • Stainless Steel Aged Chardonnay – Has a juicy minerality and long clean finish
