DECIBEL

240 East 9th Street, NY, New York 10003, USA
back to list

By far the best sake bar in the city, Decibel’s small basement location is designed with dark wood, red paper lanterns, and graffiti-covered walls. Combined with a buzzer at the outdoor entrance, the space has a true speakeasy feel. The sake list is extensive, and the menu is divided into categories based on the brewing process, ranging from mild to very dry. In addition to the sake, the menu offers Japanese light fare including katsuo, khada, saba miso, steamed shumai, edamame, sauteed seaweed, and noodles. While Decibel is a favorite among locals, less experienced new comers may be surprised by the rather uncordial service. But give it a shot—this bar will prove to be a memorable NYC experience.
