Happy hours are rarely the bargain they claim to be. With discounted drink menus limited to dollar-off PBR and Bud, they're always transpiring between those "peak hours" of five and seven, when everyone's still at work. But if a bar took a more generous deviation from this standard happy-hour formula, we assume it wouldn't make a decent buck. That's why we wonder how Verlaine does it. A happy hour until 10 p.m. every night is unheard of. For seven days a week, unimaginable. There's no weenie, buck-off deals here either. The bar's most popular cocktail, a litchi martini called the Hanoi, is half-price at $4, as is the Suko, a white sangria with pureed Granny Smith apples, longan syrup, and grapefruit, and a red sangria with rambutan syrup and loquat fruit. The Bloody Mary, also $4, gets a Southeast Asian update with fresh ginger, coriander, chili paste, and your choice of plain or infused vodkas with lemongrass, cucumber, or hot pepper. Glasses of Cotes du Rhone and Chardonnay are available for the same price, and the daily beer special (usually McSorley's Irish Ale) is two for $5.
