It's 5 O-Clock Somewhere!

It has been quite a while since I have written another blog and its been long enough.

 Here we go!!!

I have another list of cool spots you should check out in NYC!!!! There are A LOT of spots that offer happy hours and great deals for drinks after work. What about places that ALSO offer deals on food too!?!

My first choice and one that I think has become quite popular is Lure Fish Bar. This restaurant is located in Soho near the Mercer Hotel. This restaurant is very unique in the sense that its built downstairs and when you are inside you feel like you are inside of a boat!! The service is very good and they have a great menu. What is also great about this place is that from 5p-7p they have a special happy hour at the bar. They have beer, wine and cocktails from $5-7 dollars normally $12 or more. What they also offer is half priced appetizers and $1 oysters! This is a definite MUST TRY!

Another fun place to check out that has happy hour drinks for $4-5 bucks till 9pm every night is Bamboo 52. It's located near Times Square on 52nd street and 8th ave. They have an extensive cocktail menu to choose your drinks from and also a great sushi menu to try as well. It gets pretty busy after work hours so get there quick!

Ever been to Japonais in Chicago? They have one in NYC near Union Square now and I don't think people know much about their happy hour! The "tasting hour" they offer is Monday-Thursday from 5p-11p and Friday-Saturday from 5p-8p. They offer $4 beer, $4 specialty drinks, and special martinis for $7. They also have a food menu including lobster spring rolls and crab cakes for only $7! This restaurant is a little more swanky if you enjoying a cheap drink that doesn't have to be purchased at a dive bar. :)

The Mermaid Inn is another spot people may not know about located near the West Village with two other locations, that offer a great happy hour and food specials. This restaurant has great oysters and lobster sandwiches as well as a delish dinner menu! If you come from 5:30-7, you can enjoy $1 oysters while sipping on a $6 glass off wine or $5 beer. If you don't like oysters, they also have other food specials available to try. If you are around on Sunday's starting TODAY- they are having a new special called the LOBSTERPALOOZA!!!  This will be at all the Mermaid locations starring a pound and a fourth lobster, grilled corn on the cob, red bliss potatoes, and cole slaw for $24. Enjoy!!

Who wants to have a GREAT burger and a $2 dollar beer? I DO! Check this West Village spot out- Corner Bistro! It's DOUBLE DELISH. The thing I love about this place is that they don't even have a menu; what they have is right up on their wall! The beers are as cheap as $2.50, so grab a beer and be prepared to wait in a line because it  gets packed- this place is WORTH THE WAIT so be patient!!!

Believe me or not- these places are places you should definitely check out!
Any questions- just ask but I will not steer you wrong.
More places to try coming soon............
