3 cheap bars in New York City

I said this aother day at the blog Facebook group – click here to participate – I dont  know everything about New York City. I learn every day – with readers, with other websites, reading newspapers. And it was reading a newspaper last week that I saw this tip and thought it would be good to share here. After all, New York is not such a cheap place to get drunk, but these three bars have drinks with good prices. They were selected by Monica DiNatale, author of 365 Guide New York City and published by Metro.US

B Side – at B Side, you can buy beers for $3 and $4, half-price well drinks plus additional savings on select brews from 3-8 p.m. daily. The front bar is small but there is a larger room in the back that has a foosball table. It’s one of those places that’s as comfortable as your own living room and never seems to get overly crowded.

Address: 204 Ave. B, Alphabet City. 

Open: daily, from 3pm to 4 am. 

International Bar – every day, beers from $3-$4 and $4 well drinks. Small, cheap, dark and friendly.  International is a perfect hole-in-the-wall bar for an affordable night of drinking, interesting conversation and a great crowd. As a bonus you can relax on the backyard patio (until 10 p.m.).

Address: 120 ½ First Ave., East Village

Open: daily, from 8 am to 4am.

1020 Bar – For those who like bar games, this is the place. 1020 offers cheap drinks, a pool table and a dartboard. Columbia students flock here for daily deals like $2-$3 beers and $4-$5 well drinks. There are always affordable drinks on the menu and friendly bartenders. This is a no-frills corner neighborhood bar with booth seating and awesome prices.

Address: 1020 Amsterdam Ave., Morningside Heights

Open: daily, from 4pm to 4am.


Lembre-se! Only people 21 years old or older can drink alcohol in USA. Always carry your ID with you to prove your age and keep in mind that if you are under 21  probably you will not come into places like these.
