A nod to the phliosophies of the prohibition era speakeasy, this East Village mainstay is doing business as a holding area for an enormous slection of liquors including cognacs and single-malt scotches. dba is also notable for its excellent location and an atmosphere that is innocuous enough for anyone to enjoy. Great garden out back, too.
Metromix 8/5/1050 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.
