Village Voice's Description

Their motto: "Drink good stuff." Thankfully, you have no other option but to do just that at this East Village beer bar. At D.B.A., you'll find an extensive selection of draught beers, Belgian imports, and hand-drawn ales, as well as a formidable stock of tequila (around 50 varieties!). For more perspective, the menu spans over a dozen chalkboards above the bar; the selection is overwhelming, but the room itself is not, featuring worn wooden fixtures, a Ms. Pac-Man arcade table, and a beer garden out back where patrons puff cigars. Here's where you go to maximize your beer-drinking street cred.

    This lower east side staple might be dreary from the front, but inside is a covered garden and often, customers with their adorable pet dogs.

    50 kinds of tequila and 130 single-malt Scotches intrigues a young and welcoming crowd of hops lovers. Yeah, there's a ton of beer too.

    Grab a few and plan on staying for awhile when its nice out - the backgarden is on our top urban oasis list.

    Outstanding selection of beer and whiskey with a friendly vibe.

    If whiskey is your drink, then this is your place. Gets crowded on the weekends. Visit during the week and bring your dog.
