Bottle Bar East has one of the biggest beer and wine selections in the city, and it’s all in bottles and cans in a stretch of fridges. So instead of standing in front of an annoyed bartender while you flip through 40 pages of options trying to decide which IPA has the lowest price and highest alcohol content, you can stare indecisively at the fridges for as long as you want and they won’t kick you out for wasting their time. Also, if you need a halftime break from your decision-making, they have a ton of seating in the back and upstairs where they serve bar food that’s good all the time, but even better during Happy Hour when appetizers are half-off.
