Me and LordErasmus hit this DUMBO institution for Dia de los Muertos! I loved the swank feel of this place. It is a bar, not especially a beer bar, yet it has a very strong selection of Belgian brews. ReBar was voted #1 new NYC bar. There is a live DJ and a cool brick-lined space with arched ceilings in a former factory. There’s an art gallery towards the back. It’s definitely a scene - everyone’s sharply dressed.

Second floor of a factory/loft space in Dumbo which serves as a kind of community gathering / artgallery/ peformance space / coffehouse. Taps have included quality yet familiar domestic and foreign selections e.g. Hacker-Pshorr, Kwak, Rogue, Great Divide, Bear Republic and N.C. Brother Thelonius. Each foreign draught is poured whenever possible in the brewery’s glassware, which is a nice touch. Bottles include several American micros as well as Belgians like Chouffe, Duvel, Chimay, Lindemans. Don’t look for many rare finds, however. A bit pricey. Small plate/tapas bar menu.
