By Ilija Sekulovski
Sweet Afton, 30-09 34th St
Sweet Afton has daily happy hour Monday through Friday, from opening to 6, and on weekends from opening until 4:30. How much better does it get than happy hour every single day of the week!? They’ve got $4 drafts, $5 well drinks, and $6 wines. Their happy hour also runs all throughout brunch, and you can get all their cocktails for just $8, which is a complete steal cause they’re strong, tasty and great quality.
Mojave, 22-36 31st St
Mojave has phenomenal tex-mex food, and Mexican cocktails are seriously a thing of beauty – especially margaritas. Mojave has happy from from Monday through Thursday, from 4 to 7pm, and until 8pm at the bar. They’ve got $5 house wines, draft beers; $6 margaritas, mojitos, sangria
MexiBBQ, 37-11 30th Avenue
MexiBBQ is another one of our favorite Mexican spots, and they’ve got happy hour half-priced pints on every beer from from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. They’ve got the classic beers, but they also have a huge selection of artisan and craft beers for around $4 a glass. MexiBBQ’s craft beer options include New York-produced beers from breweries such as Greenpoint Harbor, Coney Island, Brooklyn and Fire Island. Their happy hour also features $5 classic margaritas, $7 flavored margaritas and $5 and under Mexican-meets-Southern barbecue bar bites.
Cafe Bar, 32-90 36th St
CAFE BAR HAS TWO HAPPY HOURS. IN THE SAME DAY. They’ve got their regular happy hour from 4 to 7 pm, and an extra special happy hour from 11 pm to 1 am, for us night owls. There are $4 well drinks, $4 house wine, $1 off bottled beers and beer pitchers for $16 and $20. They also have 50% off on wine Mondays and Tuesdays, so basically Cafe Bar is a great place to get your drink on while staying within your budget.
DiWine, 41-15 31st Ave
DiWine is one of our favorite places because of how comfy and cozy the interior is. After a long day at work, DiWine is definitely one of our places to wind down. They’ve got happy hour from 5 to 8pm, and their specials are buy 2 get 1 free, so it’s good for going out with work friends for some post-weekday drinks. The drink menu here is huge, with special attention paid to their extensive wine selection – everything you’d expect from a spot with wine in their name.
Fayrooz Cafe And Lounge, 28-08 Steinway St
Fayrooz is more of a hookah lounge, so if drinks are hookah are you thing, this is your place. They’ve got $10 buckets of 5 Miller High Life and 2 fo1 select cocktails. They also cut down the price of hookah to just $8, which easily gets you an hour of relaxation and smoke blowing. Fayrooz’s happy hour runs from 6 to 9pm every weekday.
