Went there to try some new beers. Awesome selection, from the looks of it the cocktails appeared good as well. Pretty cool that it's a dog-friendly place as well. Will definitely come back soon.

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
