Hypothetically, you could get your shopping done at Alphabet City Beer Co. Near the entrance, you’ll see some fridges filled with beer, meat, and cheese, and you’ll also find a small selection of honey, pickles, and other things typical of attractive, impractical grocery stores. But mostly you come here to drink lesser-known beers on draft. This long dark space has one of the largest communal tables we’ve ever seen. There’s also has a confusing number of leather armchairs, so go ahead and treat this bar like your living room. Dates, book clubs - it works for everything.
