As soon as you walk through the door.....you get dog. dog smell. dog bark. hipsters w/ dogs. It's killing what was one of the first "good beers" bars. PS...the music is too loud.

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
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
