  dba in NOLA
by Cabana_Boy

dba has quickly become my favorite bar in NOLA. With an impressive selection of high-end booze (especially whisky, scotch & tequila) and a great decor set in an old store front, this place has it going on... dba is hip, but not stuffy. There is also a good selection of beers from around the world (heavy on Belgian ales) as well as the local favorite, Abita, from just across Lake Pontchartrain. It also has to be said the women serving up all these lucious beverages can also captivate one's eye (like the chalkboard listing all the drinks above the bar).

In addition to the barmaids and libations floating behind the bar, dba also has a very small stage for live music. Given it's size, it's a great place to see music as the chances are you will be sitting right next to one of the musicians. I saw The Instigators, a blues band from Sweden, there a few weeks ago and sat right next to the drummer...groovy.
