Let’s face it. Good cocktails that happen to be cheap are not easy to find in this town. Hell, even cheap beer is becoming a relic as dive bars like the Mars Bar shutter and Subway Inn is forced to move. Fortunately, there are still some caring bar-owners who open up their doors every day and welcome tired, thirsty New Yorkers with a quality pour that’s affordable. Here are 13 of them.
This low-key Williamsburg bar mixes up $10 drinks all day, which by New York standards is pretty cheap. But is also offers glasses of punch for $5 a glass, in flavors that rotate through from a long list of concoctions on a daily basis. Plus during happy hour, which runs from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m on Mondays through Fridays, all well drinks are just $6.
