Bar 43

Bar 43
At this modern sports bar's weekday happy hour, the local crowd has from 11am to 7pm to chug their way through 13 kinds of draft beers (including an expertly poured Guinness), all of which are discounted ($4, domestics $3). If you can't watch one of the nine plasma TVs without cheer-induced sloshing, go for a $3 bottle of Bud Lite or a $4 Blue Moon. 43-06 43rd St at 43rd Ave, Sunnyside, Queens (718-361-3090, bar43.com)

Barrow Street Ale House
Slide into a roomy booth at this classic, bare-bones pub and embark on an all-day beer bender: From 11am to 7pm, drafts of Brooklyn Lager and Bud are $3. If you're in it for the long haul, don't forget to order a greasy basket of fries ($3.50) to improve your stamina. 15 Barrow St at 4th St (212-691-6127, barrowstreetalehouse.com)

Black Bear Lodge
Relive your college glory days during the faux chalet's 2--7pm happy hour, when $2 cans of PBR and Natty Light lure in a frat-tastic crowd. 274 Third Ave between 21st and 22nd Sts (212-253-2178, bblnyc.com)

Boss Tweeds Saloon
There's plenty of time to nab a beer-pong table while the booze is still cheap: Well drinks are $4 and drafts go for $3 every day from noon until 8pm. You'll have played your fair share of flip cup (and probably be in bed already) before the rowdy night crowd rolls in. 115 Essex St between Delancey and Rivington Sts (212-475-9997, bosstweeds.com)

Cozy up to the dark-wood bar at this authentically Irish, so-friendly-it's-practically-familial Astoria haunt, where affable broguing bartenders pour $3 20-ounce domestic drafts from 11am until 6:45pm. 32-01 Broadway at 32nd St, Astoria, Queens (718-545-8567)

The Mark Bar
Next time you pull a ten-hour shift at the office, consider that the entire time you stared down the clock, the Mark Bar's daily happy hour—featuring $3 beers and well drinks, along with free pizza at 6pm—raged from 10am to 8pm. If only you had called in sick, you could've spent the day playing pool, darts and Big Buck Hunter like it was your job. 1025 Manhattan Ave between Freeman and Green Sts, Greenpoint, Brooklyn (718-349-2340, themarkbar.com)

An eclectic Soho lounge, which plays hip-hop, rock and B movies (but not at the same time), Obivia draws a big crowd for discounted tipples on Monday nights. From 5pm to midnight, well drinks and sangria go for $5 each, while a rotating specialty cocktail—recently a pear margarita—is a mere $5.75. 201 Lafayette St between Broome and Kenmare Sts (212-226-4904, obivia.com)

Soda Bar
Now that the weather is warming up, you can finally enjoy happy hour on the back patio of Vanderbilt Avenue's nightlife anchor, Soda Bar. Rain or shine, drafts are $3, and well drinks are $5 from noon to 7pm daily. If you've got the munchies, order the onion rings—just prepare yourself for repeat hankerings in days to come. 629 Vanderbilt Ave between Park and Prospect Pls, Prospect Heights, Brooklyn (718-230-8393)

Southern Hospitality
This BBQ joint does booze as well as it does Tennessee-style ribs: Join a young, yuppie crowd for $3 drafts, $5 well drinks and $6 frozen margaritas every day from noon to 7pm. 1460 Second Ave between 76th and 77th Sts (212-249-1001, southernhospitalitybbq.com)

Welcome to the Johnsons
Sip your way into a PBR buzz at this sceney dive, where cans are just $1.75 from 3 to 9pm on weekdays and 1 to 9pm on the weekends. 123 Rivington St between Essex and Norfolk Sts (212-420-9911, myspace.com/welcometothejohnsons)
