    Super boozy and delicious cocktails -- tons with rum that are vaguely Tiki -- with a vibe that's perfect for a date. Half off cocktails and practically free tacos at happy hour, too.

    Fun place to party with friends. Music and room to stand and dance if funk is your thing (depends on the night). You can order cocktail pitchers for $40 which is a plus to save time.

    Donna's piña colada is called the Brancolada, because of its inclusion of minty Branca Menta. A hint of orange juice is also blended in with the pineapple, coconut cream, and Appleton rum. Read more

    Cocktail bar that plays old classics and gives off a retro vibe. The drinks menu, on the other hand, is hip and fun. They also serve tacos here. Overall a cool, laid-back place.

    The frozen Brancolada is sort of like a piña colada, comprised of orange juice, pineapple juice, Appleton rum, and coconut milk, but with the welcome addition of minty Brancamenta. Read more

    Jeremy makes some of the best cocktails you've ever had. He won a Food & Drink award and he's known as one of the best mixologists in the country. Translation: drink his drinks. They're good.

    Cocktail + $5 taco deal is epic. Also the interior + staff + waiters + tacos ARE EPIC. LOVE FOR DONNA

    Can never go wrong with their frozen drinks! Best in NYC. Food is OK. Not a huge fan of how "early" they close (and the slushy machine stops running even earlier). Not much elbow room on Fri & Sat.

    I was in a horrid state when I went here (lol) but even then I had sort of a good time. Nice design and the Brancolada was good. Cool bartender

    At Donna the warm staff can nerd out hard about everything from cocktails and music, and the drinks are inventive with a slight touch of tiki throughout the menu. Read more

    Mmm the brancolada is so so delicious. Even if you're here in the wintertime, get it. It'll take you to happier days in warmer places.

    The tacos are simple but so very delicious! My boyfriend and I love this place and go often for the daily drink and taco special.

    Magician King cocktail is spicy and delicious. $5 for two tacos until 8pm on weeknights. Awesome vibe and great tunes!

    Drink this: The OJ-splashed Brancolada elevates the piña colada w/ herbal & minty Branca Menta—the result is at once sophisticated & dangerously easygoing, like a Ph.D. student gone on spring break. Read more

    Awesome cocktail bar with a nice vibe. Beware, the old fashioned is a bit on the sweet side.

    The cocktails here are quite tasty, but I made the mistake of coming here on a Saturday night and had to wait a full half hour to get a drink at the bar (plus the frozen drink machine was broken).

    Happy hour specials are good, but just order the River Styx. Ceviche was mostly vegetables.
