Along with free parties and boozy slushies, one of the best things that New York bars offer is the daily, weekday happy hour. With the amount most New Yorkers work, a couple cocktails after work are usually more than welcome. But not all of us get off at 5pm and can sip half-priced martinis until the sun sets. For those with long hours and late schedules, these happy hours are for you.
