East Village
Few local bars like to hear the words private party and Saturday night in the same sentence, but Sammy and Leonard O’Connor’s Solas is one that does. They’ll let you book the red room upstairs gratis; they’ll even kick out amorous couples who wander in. If you’re just here for a drink or two, you’ll find a bustling Irish pub downstairs from the spacious two-room lounge. Snag a beer at the bottom and make your own private party.

This East Village bar is a snug place to sit back and have a few pints.  Although it looks small from the outside, Solas actually covers 2 floors, although the upstairs is frequently rented out for private parties.  If you come for drinks post work, the dim lighting and background music are a pleasant way to end your day.  This crowd usually files out around 830-900 where a much younger crowd shuffles in.  There are areas to dance both upstairs and downstairs, with bars on both floors.  Occasionally during the winter, they have a warm pot of stew cooking to assist you with the chill. Drink prices tend to get a bit pricey if you stray away from beer and wine.
