We’re not sure whether dbar on Dot Ave is an Irish pub that feels like a club, or a club that feels like an Irish pub. But labels aren’t important (even when they rhyme). This place is just fun. It’s got a great, bamboo-lined back patio for when the weather’s nice, and a dark but comfortable wood-lined interior for when it’s not. The menu is kind of all over the place, with things like crab rangoon, brick chicken, and tacos, but it gets the job done while you order another drink.
