A Stylish Must-Do Happy Hour

Who leaves work these days at 5PM to attend a 4-7PM Happy Hour? By the time you rush over to whatever bar it is you are just happy you made it time to make an order.

A favorite place for happy hour with style is Verlaine. I've been there about 4-5 times and it never lets me down.


  • It has a decent soothing ambiance to take away from the day's craziness

  • Happy hour is from 4-10PM - yes 10:00PM, 7 days a week!

  • Drink specials: Their delicious $4 Lychee Martinis; Sangrias, Vietnamese Bloody Marys; House red & white wines; Basic cocktails. Also 2 for 1 Bavaria Blond Lager

  • The food is also tasty and inexpensive - I recommend the dumplings, shrimp and their fried ginger chicken wings - yummy and a nice portion.

So chop chop and get there. It can be cool for a non-stuffy date; catch up time with the girls or one of many bar-hopping stops.

Location: 110 Rivington Street (bet. Essex a& Ludlow); F train to Second Avenue or the FJMZ to Delancey Street.

Oh and if after a couple of drinks you get those munchies... the pizza around there is delicious.
