If you didn’t notice, May is almost half over, and you’re a little more than a week away from Memorial Day weekend. Celebrate by toasting at one of these four happy hours.
The Hudson Bond, 215 West 40th Street
Drafts and well drinks are each $5 from 4 to 7 p.m. at this spacious lounge, and sangria is $7. The cocktail line-up deals classics like the Austin Mule and Manhattan. And take note: This place is a stone’s throw from Penn Station, which makes it a prime stop for commuters who need a stiff drink — or Newark airport-goers who need a little liquid courage before the trek.
Saleya, 65 West Broadway
Fuel your boozy happy hour with a little pizza. From 4 to 7 p.m., this bar turns out select cocktails at $6 paired to $5 pies. The Mediterranean restaurant features cocktails with regionally appropriate names like the Corsica, a combination of pureed cucumbers, Aperol, and gin.
The New York Beer Company, 321 West 44th Street
This craft beer emporium features two separate happy hours nightly, which feature a rotating rosters on specials. On Wednesdays, look for $5 select drafts and a two-for-one special on craft beer cans from 11 a.m until 8 p.m. and then again from midnight until closing. Thursdays see a $15 growler-of-the-week deal, and Mondays and Tuesdays bring two-for-one specials on specific breweries.
Charlie’s Bar and Kitchen, 112 Lincoln Avenue, Bronx
This south Bronx cocktail bar is a lively setting for those near the Mott Haven area, and it offers a roster of specials on cocktails and beers from 4 to 8 p.m. Pop in on Monday nights for trivia and half-priced bottles of wine after 8 p.m., Tuesdays brings live music, and Friday features karaoke.
