Happy Hour at Donnybrook: 8 Full Hours of Discounted Drinking
More like happy day.
A happy hour can be a fleeting thing. Two measly hours, 120 brief minutes of discounted bibulous enjoyment before you're left scrambling to chug that last marked-down drink before the price shoots back up to prime-time levels. Luckily, at Donnybrook, you can take your time. Happy hour is more like happy day at this Lower East Side pub: Monday to Friday, 12-8 p.m., a full workday's worth of drink specials to satisfy your thirst and budget. And, starting today, the bar has made the deal even sweeter. In addition to $3 domestic beers, $5 well drinks, and cocktails reduced from $12 to $8, you can now get a 20-ounce imperial-sized pint of Guinness -- or any draft -- for $4 (down from $5).
The scene ...
The locals may lament the loss of Lotus Lounge, but quality pints, decent grub, and footy matches on TV help lessen the blow. Donnybrook may have upped the frat-boy quotient of the neighborhood, but the lads in question are the kind you'll take any day over the unruly throngs of Orchard Street. The odd backwards baseball cap is a reasonable price to pay for a well-poured ($4!) pint of Guinness. Go team.
