Luckily I’m not the only one that loves a good deal. A smart bar owner should always offer a money $aving window to lure in customers. I will definitely revisit, even during full prices hours. If you need savings inspiration this weekend, give these a whirl.
St. Dymphna’s Bar (118 St. Mark’s Place) Every day from 12 p.m.-8 p.m. relax at the bar with $4 drafts. This affordable pub is perfect for grabbing a burger at a table or bellying up to the bar and drinking to your hearts content. Most entrée menu items are under $13 and appetizers start at $8. Try the truffled mac & cheese ($12) or the shepherd’s pie ($10). It’s lively, yet homey and quirky at the same time. Breakfast and lunch are served until 5 p.m. and a full Irish breakfast is only $12.
Local 138 (138 Ludlow Street) From 4 p.m.-9 p.m. daily $4 drink deals include beers, wines and mixed drinks. The atmosphere is completely divey and relaxed with twelve tasty beers on tap. They are a bar lovers bar without a kitchen, just strong drinks and good tunes. There are two nooks up front that are perfect for small groups less than eight. Fill up on pizza or a greasy burger nearby and spend less money with cool drinks in a cooler vibe.
The Headless Horseman (119 East 15th Street) Stop by Monday through Friday for $5 well drinks and $6 beer and wine from 5 p.m.-7 p.m. Munch on $6 bar snacks daily like spiced and candied bar nuts. It sounds weird but this place reminds me of a cool dark dungeon but in a good way. It’s mainly a craft beer bar with twenty plus beers on tap and a knowledgeable staff. They offer fun seasonal drink specials as well. It may not go with your cocktail du jour but the toasted fluffernutter ($10) sandwich is delightfully decadent. Add $25 to brunch on weekends for endless mimosas or Bloody Mary’s.
