NOLITA. Brothers Swift and Ulysses keep folks in the East Village and Lower East Side, respectively, well stocked with Guinness Stout, fish & chips, and cottage pie. Meanwhile, those who call SoHo home treasure this ever-busy public house, so-named because it’s situated adjacent to the historic Puck Building. The pub boasts several cozy nooks and crannies (good for ducking into if you need a quick breather), and its high, beamed ceilings creates the illusion that the space is larger and more wide open than it actually is. From time to time, it’s not uncommon to step in and find an Irish band playing on the balcony stage.
