Atop the new Pod Brooklyn is RFTP, a bar and lounge with views of Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood and the Manhattan skyline. Much like the Pod Hotels brand, RFTP is modern, minimal and cool. With a zinc bar and cushioned wooden “banquettes,” the space can host private events for up to 200 guests.
