Cheap Drinks at Nita Nita, Manhattan Proper, Josie Woods Pub, and Reif’s Tavern


Looking for something to do after work other than watching your DVR’ed collection of season premieres? How about a little cheap drinking?Here’s where to head this week.

Nita Nita, 146 Wythe Avenue, Brooklyn

While the back garden fills up with leaves at this cozy neighborhood spot, patrons fill up on $3 drafts and menu selections. Off-the-beaten-path options like Abita Pecan Harvest and Ithaca Flower Power IPA pour from the taps, and $4 well drinks are also available during happy hour, which lasts from 4 to 7 p.m. The menu focuses on tapas and features treats like gouda mac and cheese, though a couple of olives and conversation might be what makes this place most appealing for a relaxing drink.

Manhattan Proper, 6 Murray Street

Drink specials that run from 4 to 7 p.m. at this spot may be appealing for anyone coping with the losses or gains of the nearby stock exchange: Domestic drafts are $4, glasses of house wine go for $5, and well drinks are $6 well drinks. Options include Brooklyn Lager and Manhattan Proper Ale. On Sundays, game day specials include a cheap bucket of Coors.

Josie Woods Pub, 11 Waverly Place

While the location pulls a NYU-centric crowd, drink specials and darts attract students (or former students) of all ages. $3 Coors Light and a $4 daily shot special may be overwhelmingly supported by fraternal brotherhood, but ten buffalo wings for $5 appeals to just about anyone who has an appetite. If class–or work, for you graduates–keeps you late, there’s also a late night deal on Wednesday from 8 to 11 p.m.: $5 well drinks and pitchers of Coors Lite are $12.

Reif’s Tavern, 302 East 92nd Street

While Wednesdays are all about $6 wine at this Upper East Side dive, there are deals for drinkers of every stripe, as patrons receive $1 off all drinks from 4 to 7 p.m. Opt for the cozy backyard or a grab a stool near the pool table.
