NYC restaurants & bars can continue serving to-go cocktails, beer & wine through at least July 26 (and hopefully past that!).
And now that it’s so hot and sticky out, it’s the perfect time to cool off with an icy drink.
Here are 10 places in NYC that are currently serving to-go cocktails so you can still enjoy happy hour, even if it’s at home. Just remember, per New York State regulations all alcoholic beverages must be purchased with food, so be sure to get something to nibble on as well.
Plus, some are also open for outdoor seating now!
