10 Degrees is located in the East Village and sports pretty sweet happy hour deals daily from 12-8pm. Some of these deals include 2-for-1 drinks, and on Mondays, you can get half off a bottle of wine. Try pairing that bottle you got half off with your choice of cheese, meat or olives.


One Mile House Bar


This NoLita bar gives off major vintage vibes with its speakeasy setup. When first glancing over their drink menu, the extensive craft beer selection stands out. They have over 100 beers to choose from, so deciding what to drink may take some time. Their food is pretty noteworthy, too. Try one of their burgers or funky sandwiches like the Mac & Cheese Grilled Cheese.


Leave Rochelle Out of It


Leave Rochelle Out of It is comedically named after a mutual ex-girlfriend of the two co-founders, but there’s nothing funny about this joint’s killer deals. Score a $5 beer and a shot when happy hour is bumping on weekdays, from 5-8pm .




Mexicue is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a place that combines Mexican and barbecue. Probably the most attractive thing about this place is the cheap happy hour deals. From 4-7pm on weekdays and 12-5pm on weekends, snag margaritas for $5 each and tacos for $2.

The only thing that can compete with a good glass of wine is a glass of wine with a mouth-watering crepe. Shade Bar is located near Washington Square Park and is well known for its delicious crepe options. Make your own for less than $8.


Art Bar


Are you looking for a cozy night out? Well, Art Bar can provide you just that. Located in the West Village, Art Bar lures in customers by creating a warm (there’s actually a fireplace), chill environment. Their regular menu is filled with relatively affordable drinks with cocktails bellow $10, and from 3-7pm various drinks are half off.

169 bar has been around for over a century. It plays all the jazz, funk and blues you need to have a soul-filled outing. The kitchen serves up Cajun favorites like crawfish, Po Boys and more until close. Pair some good food with the crazy $3 beer and a shot drink special during happy hour, from 12:30pm-7pm.


Greenwich Treehouse


Climb the stairs at 46 Greenwich Ave. that lead up to a fun, quirky spot. There’s a ton of activities to do at the Greenwich Treehouse. You can watch a movie, play trivia and even play video games. Enjoy great happy hour specials like $4 well drinks every day of the week from open until 8pm.
