Still looking for relief after another Valentine’s Day spent alone? Forget Tinder and Grindr and meet a mate the old fashion way: by bonding over drinks. With cheap specials galore, there’s no reason not to buy a round or two.
Kelly’s Sports Bar, 12 Avenue A
Hockey is all the rage during the Olympics, and a cheap brew at this Irish sports bar is just what the doctor ordered if you’re looking to cheer your home country. The bar features a vintage air hockey table and also features games nightly. From noon to 7 p.m., drafts and well drinks are half priced.
Cafe Dancer, 96 Orchard Street
Wiped out financially after a weekend of love? A $2 Genesee Cream Ale can get you back into the black quickly. From 5 to 7 p.m., all house cocktails are $2 off, and wine and well drinks are $4. Use leftover cash to snag the house special grilled cheese. The venue also hosts plenty of live music performances.
Meade’s, 22 Peck Slip
If you’re looking to toast the end of a relationship — or just the day — head to a bar that’s closing for good at the end of the week. Though this seaport bar was able to bounce back from Sandy, rising rent will swallow it whole on Sunday. Happy hour specials have included $2 Rolling Rock and $10 wine carafes; expect a few deals before the place shuts its doors.
La Cava, 939 Second Avenue
From 4 to 7 p.m., escape to the vineyards with discounts on wine of all varieties. Selections range in price from $5 to $7 , while plenty of cheese and charcuterie make a great cheap bar snack.
