If you're stuck in the city for these summer Fridays, there really only one thing to do. Do you really need us to tell you? Drink! Thankfully, there are two new summer happy hours where you can wet your whistle, especially if you do get out of the office early and have some boozy daylight hours to kill.
First up is Barrio 47 (pictured), a trendy spot in the West Village that has happy hour EVERY DAY. Yep, we just used all caps. Oh, snap. Their deal will score you $4 beers, glasses of rose for $5.50, red and white wine for $6 and a selection of cocktails for $7. If that wasn't enough, you can also down some oysters for $1 a piece, because you gotta eat something so you aren't hungover all weekend. That deal goes from 5 to 7 PM daily and Barrio 47 is located at 47 Eighth Avenue.
If you are in Long Island City, you can score some drink deals at Alobar, a nose-to-tail eatery dishing out rustic American cuisine. This deal runs from 4 to 7 PM on Monday through Friday - you know what they say, the early bird gets the booze. If you drop by, you'll be able to score $5 draft beers, $5 infused libations and $5 glasses of wine. Not too shabby. If you're looking to drink it up for cheap in LIC, the restaurant is located at 46-42 Vernon Blvd.
