On Saturday I finally made it to Dacha Beer Garden in Shaw. I am already planning to go back there this week. (Is tonight too soon?)
Why I like it: The neighborhood bar is the perfect place to meet up with a group of friends. And with a fire pit, it is also the perfect place to go on a cozy, laid-back date. The clientele is friendly, the staff is accommodating and the beer selection is topnotch.
They are closing down for winter (much like Standard/Garden District) so I am going to go there as much as possible this fall. Strong heat lamps and the aforementioned fire pit make Dacha the ideal place to spend an afternoon or evening in November. When they reopen in Spring, they will have a kitchen and some indoor space. Can’t wait.
