This East Village bar owes its atmosphere to co-owner and Tony–award-winning set designer William Ivey Long, who filled the cozy pub with stained-glass flourishes, an abundance of orchids, cherrywood-paneled walls and Louise Bourgeois lithographs. Despite frat bait like well-priced beer (the house ale goes for just $5 a pint), there’s little spillover from the area’s college-friendly bars. Instead you’ll find low-key tipplers conversing over fresh-squeezed screwdrivers and greyhounds, made to order with an old-fashioned citrus press on the bar.

Shoolbred's is not your average East Village bar. It's a more sophisticated, classy bar in the midst of post-college kids drinking at sports bars. My favorite part of this place was the prosecco on draught; it was so delicious and the portion was very generous. There is a cool booth in the back too, fun to sit at with a small group of friends.
