The Cooperage that houses Wythe Hotel was designed by Theobald Engehart and opened in 1901.
Built to manufacture barrels for the sugar refiners that lined the East River at that time, it was one of the last masonry and timber buildings built in Brooklyn before reinforced concrete became the preferred construction method.
The building featured an exterior spiral staircase in our iconic “scooped” corner.
Later, the building spent time as a textile factory which produced acoustic fabrics and specialty fabrics for the Space Program.

When we started work on the hotel in 2008, it was vitally important that we preserved as much of the original beauty and craftsmanship as possible, also highlighting its time-worn beauty.
No-one will ever build a building like this again, anywhere in the world, so we feel very lucky to be her most recent stewards.
80 Wythe has been part of many, many stories before becoming a hotel, and we are proud to play a small role in the stories of all our guests, visitors, neighbors, friends and family moving forward.
