We all sleep, wake up, eat, work, and go back to sleep. The daily routine… That’s why happy hours exist, so you can drink and spend less money! Otherwise we would’ve killed ourselves a long time ago… New York has plenty of them and here are the 10 best we’ve found:
1. The Mermaid
At the Mermaid, never underestimate the power of the oyster. Especially when from 5pm to 7pm you can have East Coast Oysters for just $1. Pretty unusual but you can also get $5 beers, $7 wine and $8 cocktails.
Monday to Friday at multiple locations including 79 Macdougal St
2. 10 Degrees
10 Degrees is certainly going to cool your body down! Not that much, but quite a bit with its Happy Hours offers. 2 for 1 from 3pm to 8pm.
Everyday at 121 St. Marks Pl
3. Ardesia Wine Bar
Ooh la la! Wine Happy Hours make us turn a bit Frenchy! And as true Frenchmen we need over 35 types of wine to make a proper decision. Well… Ardesia does that for you with a $2 off discount.
Monday to Friday at 510 W 52nd St
4. Rudy’s Bar & Grill
Can’t miss this! OK, where do we start? At Rudy’s Bar & Grill you can have a free hot dog when you buy a drink. Then if you’re thirsty, get a $5 shot of Bushmills Irish Whisky and Rudy’s Blonde Draft. Or, a pickle and Jameson for $7.
Everyday at 627 9th Ave
5. The Penrose – The Upper East Local
May the karma be with you! The Penrose offers 3pm to 7pm Happy Hours. Get $5 draft beers (except Duvel), $6 Well Liquor, $7 House Wine, $7 Soda Spike Cocktails. A percentage of their profits is donated to Streets International.
Monday to Friday at 1590 2nd Ave
6. Giovanni Rana Pastificio & Cucina
Good atmosphere, good vibe – that’s all we want. And we’ve found the spot! From 4pm to 7pm all drinks half off at Giovanni Rana Pastificio & Cucina. This includes cocktails, beers, wine, Champagne and always a bite to satisfy your hunger.
Monday to Friday at 75 9th Ave
7. Masa y Agave at Rosa Mexicano
If you still ask yourself what it will be like to have a drink in a hispanic country, Masa y Agave is the place to go between 5pm and 7pm. Let’s relax and have a $5 beer or a $6 wine, and if we feel more like eating, we could have Dos Tacos de Cantina or Quesadillas de Cantina both for $6.
Tuesday to Saturday at 41 Murray St
8. Fresh Salt
Days can be long and believe it or not, your brain needs to rest. What’s better than having an easy menu to pick from? Nothing, to be honest. Well! Fresh Salt has made it for you. Simple equation: from 4pm to 8pm everything costs $4.
Everyday at 146 Beekman St
9. The Cellar at Beecher’s Handmade Cheese
Cheese! Cheese! We love it! And if it’s combined with happy hour deals, we love it even more. From 3pm to 7pm The Cellar features $5 specialty cocktails, $6 glasses of wine, AND $7 mac and cheese. People say to come early… We’ll let you guess why.
Everyday at 900 Broadway
10. The Pony Bar
Some of us have the kind of engine that only runs on beer. Guess what? We found the perfect gas station! The Pony Bar serves all types of beer from 4:20pm to 5:20pm and there’s $1 off all craft beer.
Everyday at multiple locations including 637 10th Ave
