Right under the Williamsburg bridge is Donna, a whitewashed cocktail spot that’s one of the best-looking bars in Brooklyn. The all-white, plant-covered space and tropical cocktails make you feel like you’re somewhere in Mexico. It’s a low-key spot to sit at the bar with a date on weeknights, and it turns into a party when they have DJs spinning on weekends. It’s also a great choice for a birthday bar outing.
