    The backyard garden is a great place for groups. Solid beer list. Sunday trivia.

    outdoor seating
  • Jennifer G.
    It's very much an east village over-crowded bar, so there's that. That said, they have a very nice craft-only beer selection. They also have outdoor space but it closes early due to noise complaints.

    Has outdoor space, unfortunately not always open... also super loud but lively!
  • Andrew C.
    Aah this place is so sweet... they have a HUGE backyard space (part heated/covered and part is outside). Some great local beers on tap (and Ithaca Beer Co. too), plus you can bring your own food!!!

    Had a birthday party here last summer. Wasn't too crowded, ample outdoor seating space (both covered and uncovered) and they have a big wall that's nice to look at. Many beers on tap.

    Choose from over 60 beers, 60 single-malt scotches, and 40 tequilas. But the best part about this First Avenue bar is their dog-friendly beer garden.

    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.
