Whiskey

Inside, d.b.a. is a dimly lit, neighborhood dive, while outside its giant -- by East Village standards, at least -- picnic table-laden backyard and covered patio are a welcome escape from the crowds. The extensive beer list changes, but expect a few rarities to the city, as well as a number of Abita brews on draft, a nod to the bar's New Orleans theme. If you can pry yourself away from the sudsy choices, you'll also find one of the best whiskey (the selection of single-malt Scotches is especially impressive) and tequila line-ups in the city.
