7 Ave A, New York, NY 10009

The only thing better than a regular happy hour is one that takes place at a time when we might actually be in a bar. From 12am 'til close, Library offers late-night happy hour specials like a Tecate and a shot of tequila for $5.

Blue Owl Cocktail Room

196 2nd Ave, New York, NY 10003

Head over to this East Village staple's long-running Hump Day party, Wonderful Wednesdays, when specialty cocktails are just $6 until 10pm.

Third & Long

523 3rd Ave, New York, NY 10016

Being in Murray Hill is reason enough to booze. Luckily, this neighborhood sports bar offers $1 Bud and Bud Light and $2 domestic drafts all night long every Monday (and Tuesday, minus the part about domestics).


244 East Houston, New York, NY 10002

Blue & Gold Tavern

79 E 7th St, New York, NY 10003

The only frill at this grimy dive is a dumpy old pool table, but who cares? Well drinks are $3, name brand liquors are $4 and specialty cocktails are $5 every night until 1am.


120 Essex St, New York, NY 10002

Though technically a restaurant, this LES go-to beats most bars with half-priced drinks and $1 oysters Sunday through Thursday from 6pm to 9pm and DJs spinning most nights.
