While you could probably fry an egg on the sidewalk thanks to the weather this week, it’s much more pleasant to grab a cold drink. And we have a fresh batch of places that offer discounted versions of just that.
Battery Harris, 64 Frost Street, Brooklyn
While your feet will remain firmly planted in Williamsburg, this beach-themed hideaway’s all-day deals will have you partying like a pirate in the Caribbean. Have your fill of warm $4 jerk or BBQ wings washed down with $3 Doc’s Cider and soak in musical entertainment. Like a true island oasis, this spot lets everyone feel like they’re on vacation.
The Malt House, 206 Thompson Street
From noon to 7 p.m. at this Greenwich Village locale, find $4 and $5 craft drafts such as Left Hand Sawtooth Nitro Ale along with select $6 cocktails (including margaritas). Craving a bite? A special happy hour menu–which includes items like calamari, hand-cut fries, and buttermilk chicken sliders–is available between 4 and 7 p.m. If you really feel like splurging, $7 cosmos and select martinis are also available, though you may just want to double up on Malt House’s own $4 brews.
Lura, 949 Columbus Avenue
A pair of happy hours run from 4 to 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. to 2 a.m. at this uptown haunt; during those hours, you’ll find $4 drafts, sangria, and margaritas and a three-for-$5 special on Long Island Blue Point oysters. Added bonus deal: Half-priced bottles of wine are available during the Wednesday dinner hour.
