DBA

After 5 years of business on North 7th, and just when it finally became the only bar with that name in the hood, Williamsburg bar D.B.A. Brooklyn posted the following message to Facebook this week:

We're very sad to say d.b.a. brooklyn will be closing at the end of the month. It's a special place for so many special people. Please come out and have a drink before we go!
The Saints face the Steelers @1 Sunday 11/30 so the game party will be on as usual & following we will have a send off (drink the inventory and say goodbye) bash...The facebook page will remain active and we will use it to let everyone know next steps (new location if possible??) or next place to meet as a group for a drink (or a few!)
p.s. - We're open Thanksgiving @5pm - George will be behind the bar serving up turkey (wild) & cranberry (juice). It's delicious!
Have a good holiday!

Gothamist points out that "The bars stayed open after owner Ray Deter died while bicycling in Manhattan in 2011 and it appears the East Village location will stay that way."
