New York is the quintessential “happy hour” city where people find themselves drinking for any and every occasion, even if it’s not quite 5 o’clock. From your local pub, to the hundreds of dive bars, to the swankiest of cocktail spots, there is certainly no shortage of watering holes to call your own.
