Bars, Taverns, and Dives."
"His approachable writing can remind even the most hardened regulars why they find themselves darkening the same door night after night, and the bright, bold illustration style brings a soft, awestruck eye to common sights. It gives you access to a friendly bartender without leaving the house -- but might also get you to hop the ferry to Staten Island and talk to whoever's on the next stool. You'll want this book, like your chosen local pub, to stick around."
The Village Voice
"It's truly a celebration of gathering places and community made even more vibrant with Tebeau's original, charming illustrations."
"To say this book by artist/writer/bartender/pro-level bon vivant John Tebeau was a labor of love is the understatement of the year. This work is a pure passion project, born from a few of Tebeau's impressively detailed illustrations of bars he has true affection for. It became a mission to illustrate favorite neighborhood haunts spanning all five boroughs and discuss what makes them so unique and beloved, why some regulars aren't even local to those locals."
The Alcohol Professor
"Within the pages of John Tebeau's guide,
Bars, Taverns and Dives New Yorkers
Love...is a map to the five boroughs' harder-to-find places--those known to locals and a few others. They are each accompanied by history and lore, plus firsthand accounts from longtime regulars and a valuable breakdown of when to go, where to sit and what to drink. The result is a charming portrait of the special places that make such a big city feel small."
"The drinks world enjoys the attentions of a handful of artists who have made it their business to chronicle the bar scene in images. John Tebeau is one of the best of these. His illustrations simultaneously capture the soul of a saloon and make you want to go there--tonight, if possible. Moreover, his taste in taverns is sound. Many of the bars profiled here, drawn from all five boroughs, are not just New York treasures, but national ones. This book will remind you why you live, and drink, in Gotham."
