Best Happy Hour Deals in the E Village: Ten Degrees Bar, Hop Devil Grill, Terroir, Destination Bar & Drop-Off Service
We’ve gone out in search of the best happy hours in the East Village. It’s a tough job, I know, but someone’s liver has to do it. Here are our favorites:
Ten Degrees Bar (121 St. Marks Place) offers a top-shelf two-4-One-You-Call-It (per person) happy hour everyday seven days a week until 8 pm. You want a grey goose and soda? Your next one is free. Bottle of wine? Have the second one for free. Hennessey XO, Patron, Single Malt- no limitations!! They also have half off on any bottle of wine every Monday, ALL NIGHT, to enjoy to a live brazilian band.
Hop Devil Grill (129 St. Marks Place) offers all of its 24 Craft Draft Beers 2 for 1 from 4 to 8 PM. Also some great daily specials offered — Mondays is 1/2 off all apps, “Taco Tuesdays” means unlimited $1 tacos, Wednesdays is $10 for a huge 64oz pitcher of potent brandy-infused sangria, Thursdays is ladies night with $2 frozen or un-frozen margs for the ladies and $1 tostadas for all.
Terroir (E. 12th b/t 1st Ave & Ave A) takes its happy hour seriously and literally. Note that it runs only from 5-6. But it made the cut because they offer several wines that are typically $8-$18 by the glass for just $6. Damn good deal for a happy hour. Unfortunately nobody really gets out of work in time to take advantage of it, except that is for all the models, writers, industry people and unemployed hipsters who live and “work” in the East Village.
Destination Bar (211 Avenue A) has a great happy hour that’s worth checking out. All drinks are 1/2 price from 4pm until 8pm every day. And yes, that includes Jello shots.
Drop-Off Service (Ave. A at 13th) offers all drinks, top shelf included, half-price everyday from 3-8pm. First time we went, we didn’t realize it was happy hour until we ordered a double Maker’s and ginger ale and a Sapphire and tonic and it was only $12. They also have great beers on tap, like Stone Arrogant Bastard. They don’t have a kitchen but they do have meat pies and sausage rolls from Tuck Shop.
