while all other restaurants, & bars in NOLITA, The Lower East Side, & East Village have become tired, and cliche, Shebeen remains a safe haven for those would like to hold a conversation, and enjoy a fine drink in
a cool/tranquil, yet interesting environment.
the back lounge, and the martini list, and staff simply cannot be beat.
i have personally hosted a half dozen parties at this establishment... everytime i do, i get bombarded with phone calls of people who attended, and now want the contact # to arrange their own party.
i would never think to post reviews, but have been shocked by some of what i have read below.
there is not a warmer tone to a bar in town!
Pros: back lounge, & generous pours
