The Happiest Happy Hour Spots in NYC

FINALLY – Bars and patios are buzzing with Happy Hours once again! 🍻🤗🍹


Published July 18, 2021

Honestly: last year felt like the longest day of work ever. But what comes after a long day of work? That’s right my fellow New Yorkers!! The after work drink (or three). Thankfully, NYC restaurants, pubs and biergartens are open once again with enough happy hour specials to make those after work drinks a quick reality for us. Leaving only one question – where shall we go? 

Whether you’re looking for the best frozen margaritas and jalapeno poppers in town, craft brews surrounded by sports screens, or simply need to find the nearest Corona possible (PS. there’s a new tool for that!!) our guide has you covered.

To celebrate the return of summer happy hours (and mostly summer in general), Corona is taking over NYC with their branded sailboat and Corona Summerbrate Sweepstakes. If you're hanging around the city and its various beaches this summer, keep your eyes peeled for the epic Corona Sailboat. Feeling lucky – and want to spend a day at sea? Enter for the chance to win a day of sailing and other great prizes. 

  • Grand Prize Includes: A six-hour sail around NYC for a winner and 4 guests
  • Other prizes include a Corona bicycle, Corona cooler & towel 

Enter to win here! And then read about our favorite happy hour spots and then naturally, meet your friends at happy hour.
