Uptowners have a neighborhood café-bar to call their own again with this reboot of a shuttered Yorkville shop (the name is short for downtown-uptown). Industrial trappings fill the 70-seat spot, including Edison-bulb chandeliers designed by Brooklyn’s Urban Chandy and communal high-top tables flanked by gray metal stools. During the day, sip Irving Farm coffee served in custom clay mugs; in the evening, caffeinated drinks give way to a boozier menu of seasonal cocktails and a dozen craft beers (Sixpoint, Dogfish Head). The menu of light bites features childhood favorites: grilled cheese sandwiches (one with cheddar, the other with Brie), tomato soup and make-your-own s’mores.

DTUT is by far my favorite place to bring my laptop and get work done.  The coffee is outstanding, along with the laid back environment, and friendly employees.  I highly recommend their fondue!

When I was working from home, I would often take my laptop to DTUT to get work done. The coffee is always great, the baristas/bartenders are always friendly, and sometimes they even have 1990s and 2000s movies playing on the projector. Such a great environment!

this place is the best. Coffee shop by day, bar by night, and everyone who works there is SUPER CHILL. Their coffee is so good. The food is okay but the drinks and ambiance are everything one wants in a cafe. Plus, they spotify or pandora a playlist and all of them seem to have really good music taste haha. And the crowd is broad-ranged. Good date spot for any kind of date (at night, lively bar scene, during the day, chill coffee date). -0 stars but my only complaint is that they don't open until 8:00 AM on weekdays, which feels like cold AF for those of us who need to scramble out before 8 (but that's not their fault)

Awesome Local spot on the upper east side! It's a coffee shop during the day and a bar at night. They have trivia during the week too! You can also make your own s'mores!


Coffee shop by day, bar by night. Love the cozy atmosphere and there were plenty of places to sit and hang out with friends. Especially if you have a big group. Reasonably priced beers and food also makes it an affordable night out. I recommend the quiches if you're feeling a bit hungry!

Cozy little cafe...or is it a bar?  This is a great place for a glass of wine or beer.  Also, they have cheese fondue and S'MORES!  Seriously, you can make your own S'Mores at your table.  How cool is that?!  Bottles of wine are super affordable too.  Great date night for sure.  Always have a good deal on some of the discount sites too.

DTUT is really what the same stands for...an ultra-cool downtown spot located uptown. The decor is minimalist yet warm and inviting at the same time with exposed brick, dim, funky lighting, and some comfy leather couches for you to relax in. There's a huge selection of craft beer as well as wine, cocktails, tea, and coffee. If you are feeling like you need a snack, have no fear, they've got that covered too. You can chose from items such as baked goods, soups, sandwiches, fondue (both cheese and chocolate), and my all-time favorite, a make your own s'mores sharing platter.
