I can’t decide whether the title of this post is awesome or incredibly pathetic. The truth is, I wish I could hit up more happy hours. It’s a brilliant concept in which everyone wins: the restaurant/bar makes money during a typically quiet time, and I am saving 50% off the price of admission to these spots (plus I’m in a great mood because I must have left work early). I googled “new york happy hours” and got 1.3 million results, of which I listed a few of my favorites below.
Happy Hours in the city range from high-end to dirt(y) cheap, and all have their merits for the mood you’re in. I’ve written about the happy hours at Lure Fish Bar and Aroma, which are two of my favorites. If anyone has a good one to share, please comment because I’d like to know.
