With it's breathtaking views of Manhattan, rooftop bars and restaurants as well as an array of cool boutique stores, Brooklyn is fast becoming the place to be and be seen. Our friends at DNA Travel have picked the very best of what Brooklyn has to offer.
A creative artist’s paradise. With dreamy interiors - a mix between raw concrete and plush velvets - you’ll feel right at home in this curated heartbeat of Brooklyn. Self-described as a melting pot of culture, Williamsburg is rapidly becoming the place to be in the city. With an abundance of neighbouring restaurants and bars to choose from, you could stay here for two nights or two weeks and knowing there’s always an adventure right around the corner.
The restaurant to see and be seen. This modern day Italian exudes opulence effortlessly. Toast with Aperol Spritz cocktails. Indulge in their hand-made Black Truffle pasta or keep it casual with a pizza. Waterfront views ensure that this A list spot is a must.
If you could pick anywhere to spend a leisurely morning, make it Sunday in Brooklyn. With white marble and rustic wooden interiors, it’s the ultimate spot to snap a brunch flatlay. Start with the House Blend juice including carrot, apple, beet and lemon. And follow with the deliriously good Sunday Pancakes including Hazelnut Maple Praline and Brown Butter.
If a glass of rosé was a place, it would be Summerly at The Hoxton. Floral barstools complement the cocktails (we recommend the Watermelon Collins - reyka vodka, watermelon, lemon, mint). And with a panoramic rooftop, views of the city that never sleeps couldn’t look better. Summerly are known for their seafood menu, try the lobster roll or the mussels. Paired, of course, with a cool glass of Domaine Dominique et Janine Crochet rosé. Cheers!
A rooftop pool hideaway in the heart of Brooklyn. Whether or not you’re thinking of going for a swim is beside the point - it’s an aesthetic to be reckoned with. Stripped sun loungers are reminiscent of London’s Shoreditch House, but don’t be fooled, The Williamsburg has created its very own paradise with their accompanying bar and café.
Perched 22 floors hight at The William Vale you’ll find Westlight, the ultimate rooftop bar brought to you from Chef Andrew Carmellini. Boasting further spectacular views of NYC, expect handcrafted classic cocktails in this awe-inspiring space.
If you haven’t already heard of Catbird, it’s a must-know for your visit to New York. Dainty, delicate jewelry perfect for stacking and layering trends. Each piece is made local in their Brooklyn studio and their diamonds and stones responsibly sourced. Shop here to both look good and feel good.
Curated vintage fashion finds live at The Break in Brooklyn. Secondhand meets editorial as their team sources and creates their collections from vintage threads. The pieces they stock feel authentically runway while being incredibly accessible.

Grab a latte and a pastry before heading for a stroll across the Brooklyn Bridge. Just over a mile’s walking distance, it’s the perfect place to take in the views of the city and get from Brooklyn to Manhattan.
DUMBO’s Washington Street in Brooklyn. This is the street for that iconic Manhattan Bridge streetstyle shot. We recommend rocking a faux fur coat paired with a chic knit and leather trousers. Be patient, it’s a popular photo hotspot, but worth nailing the shot.
Red brick buildings, artistic graffiti walls and the coolest shop fronts make this the perfect spot to capture some street-style snaps.
