People tend to check in during these times:
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.
Holy Jesus, D.B.A. has awesome beers. They had Double Dead Guy Ale, which I didn't even know existed... (Awesome)
Patience is key for getting a drink.
Staff here seem to have an attitude. Am always talked down to despite asking basic, reasonable questions.
Bathrooms and service suck ass
Lazy afternoon?... want great beer?... want to sit outside? D.B.A. is the answer
Dogs are welcome at this bar. Come in and grab a beer with your pup.
Hot mulled cider with rum OR whiskey. Heaven in a slow cooker...
A mainstay in craft beer since the mid-90s, d.b.a. boasts a well-stocked list of bottled beer, enough taps that you won't run out of options, free Sunday bagels, and a hugely popular backyard garden.
Two TVs showing Yankees game, none showing Mets, refused to put things right. Obviously a despicable place run by terrible people.
This place has the best beer selection and is always swarming w laid back good looking people. The back patio is one of my fave spots to post up for hours.
Best beer/whiskey bar in the city (and i live across the street)
Great back patio, great beers, infuriatingly slow bartenders. One of my favorite bars in NYC.
Get one of the 12+ beers on tap and enjoy it on the back porch. Don't stay too long! They're pricy for the neighborhood.
It’s a beer lover’s mecca—250 brews (20 on tap)
Go to d.b.a. and order a Four Roses Small Batch, neat.
Back porch is amazing
Drinks choice, yes plentiful. Mens room, yes hold breath. Go the the website and see if you favorit bar stool is vacant, then run over.. .
The bar name stands for 'doing business as' which has its own interesting story as to how that came about
They'll let you order food from any restaurant and have it delivered there to eat...
Best bathroom in the city.
The vague name has beer geeks in the outdoor garden arguing about it means. One thing that’s certain? They have damn good beer—350 bottles and 16 taps worth.
a LES must, with a great backyard
Bartenders are painfully slow
Great beer selection and cool outdoor/greenhouse seating area. Be careful of seats that smell like dog s#it, there are a lot of them because they allow dogs
Great beer selection, outdoor space, and the filthiest bathrooms in NYC. Classic...
Ask if you cab pet the cat in the box. It's cute & licks itself on the bar.
Take a deep breath before entering the men's room!
Drink the always-rotating cask-conditioned ales to start, then go to any of the other 15-or-so rarely distributed beers on tap. And please, don't have the damn Hoegaarden.
Corona and Amstels cost about $7. This is becuase people are dumb enough to order them when they could spend less on more with a quality beer on-tap
Sundays: $8 mimosas, bloodies, mulled cider (in the winter). FREE bagels + lox!
Four Roses Secratariat for half the price at Mayesville...
The bartenders seemed uninterested in taking our orders. We just grabbed some water and left.
Terrible bar staff, ignored me for 5 minutes while doing nothing else in particular
It's 6 PM on a Friday night and there's one very slow, rude bartender. Impressive.
dba in the East Village has double the options for outdoor seating. If you're trying to avoid the sun or bugs, stay in the glass vestibule instead of heading to the tables all the way out back.
I love this place, but why does it always smell like a locker room?
Rude staff, specifically the bartender that looks like she's had a very rough go. Don't ask her any questions, she doesn't know and doesn't want to answer.
“Used to be better” is a sad way to describe it, but it can’t match up to its better days.
Back patio is good for groups, get there early to snag a table on sunny days.
There's a cat here who hangs out in the back office. Her name is Maggie. Sometimes she pops out of the office to entertain guests. By the looks of it, she doesn't like being picked up.
a little slice of NOLA in New York.
All the bartenders are bitches
