Hi everyone, we hope you are all well. With spring approaching very quickly, we know everyone wants to get out of their tiny apartments and finally be social again. Although drinks in New York City will break the budget fast, a New Yorker´s favorite way of being social usually includes happy hour. Drinks often start at $12, which can add up very quickly.
The team at Alohause has made up a list of our favorite spots for happy hour. These are all places where you can have fun without having a heart attack when you check your account the morning after. That is if you are over the age of twenty-one, of course.
Ace Bar – 531 E. 5th St, Manhattan
This place is located between Avenue A and B in the heart of East Village. They have different bar activities like pool tables, dart boards, and of course cheap drinks. The vibe is casual, and it is great for a chill night out with a group of friends or your roommates.
For happy hour, which is from 3pm to 8pm, domestic drafts are $3 and well drinks are $5. That is dangerously cheap, so drink responsibly, and have fun!
The 13th Step – 149 2nd Avenue (between 9th and 10th street), Manhattan
If you are a college student or young professional, you will fit right in. The 13th Step is a great place to watch sports events, and meet new people. They have great deals and specials every day, but they also offer a happy hour with half off the whole bar, Monday to Friday from 11:30am to 8pm. It can’t get any better than that for students with a tight budget, that still wants to have a good time.
The Commodore – 366 Cosmopolitan Ave, Brooklyn
If Brooklyn is more your vibe, you will definitely like this place. Located in super popular Williamsburg. Their happy hour is weekdays from 4-7pm, where you get $2 off drinks and $3 beer. But the best part is all the delicious bar food that they offer. The fried chicken is a must-try and who does not love the combination of fried food and happy hour?
Trophy Bar – 351 Broadway, Brooklyn
This place is great now that spring is approaching us. They have a great indoors bar, but they also have a backyard patio. Their happy hour is Sunday to Wednesday from 4-8pm. This happy hour includes a $7 cheeseburger, or veggie burger (great for all the veggies out there) with fries, and some other great happy hour foods. But most importantly, $6 Margaritas, Sangrias, and Bloody Mary´s. As well as $5 well drinks and draft beer. You cannot go wrong with this place!
That’s it for this post, and we hope you’ve found some of our suggestions helpful. Happy hour is a great way of connecting with new roommates or friends in this crazy city, and we hope you have a great time. Cheers!
