American Dream

Drinks & Burgers

Drinks & Burgers (abbreviated DAB) is two bars in one. By day, it is a cozy burger joint for all – at neighboring tables you might find hungry hipsters, or a respectable couple with children, or office workers. But at night, the restaurant is transformed into a trendy bar where young people flock from all over the city to listen to DJs, chat with tattooed bartenders, and drink specialty shots.

Some say they have the best burgers in town here.

The originally designed interior was inspired by good old New York City – exposed brick, simulated streetlights, and pages from vintage American magazines on the walls. With unexpected details like wooden cutouts in the shapes of farm animals and sausages, and a huge chandelier adorned with wine glasses on the atrium ceiling – the overall setting looks ironically modern.

But the real exclusive is in the kitchen. Burgers at DAB are not like the bland fare at fast food chains. Their patties are prepared with meat from local producers and are cooked over coals in a Spanish Josper oven, which evenly heats from all sides – saturating the food in smoky flavor and keeping it juicy.

Vegetarians and fish eaters will find fish, vegetable, cheese, and egg options.

So as not to get your hands messy dealing with this multi-layered construction dripping with sauce, burgers come in envelopes made from specialty paper. And to wash them down they offer a variety of craft beers, which are purchased from microbreweries in small batches of about one hundred bottles.

The overall relaxed atmosphere at DAB and a great soundtrack dominated by rock songs contribute to better digestion. Incidentally, the American slang word “dav” translates as "master of his craft" and often refers to an extremely cool person.
