NYC Happy Hour Overview

Off the Wagon - Restaurant | Sports Bar in NYC

For New Yorkers post-work happy hour drinks are as de rigeur as wearing suits on Wall Street. Knowing the city's affinity for de-stressing drinks, most bars throughout the city offer some kind of happy hour specials to draw patrons out of their offices and onto the bar stools.

In the Lower East Side, drinks are already on the cheap side, but a competitive market for the twenty-somethings living in the area gives the neighborhood some of the best happy hour specials in the city. Even further downtown, taking to the Financial District's cobblestone streets once the stock market closes is sure to leave you rubbing well dressed shoulders with New York's finance gurus slugging down beers at the Stone Street Tavern. For young professionals, The Ainsworth is a popular meet up for cocktail specials and cheap beers with enough sports on TV for the guys and music and cocktails for the girls.

On week nights, New York's party hardy crowd starts the weekend early at after work clubs like Hudson Terrace's Thursday night after work party, where a mix of financial frat boys and girls and the happily unemployed kick off the weekend with live DJs and reduced price drinks.

Whether it be decompressing after a stressful day in the office, a casual date or sealing a deal with a client, New York happy hours are a one of a kind experience guaranteed to get you drinks without emptying your wallet.
