Where To Drink For CHEAP In NYC This St. Patty's Day

It's that time of year again! Our annual list of where to drink cheap on St. Patrick's Day in New York City. As many of you probably know, St. Patrick's Day is reason for most bars to cancel their happy hour specials and hike up their prices.

Fear not! We've complied a list of the best drink specials in town tomorrow. We've confirmed each of the deals below, but it's always a good idea to give the places a buzz before you head over to reconfirm. Also, keep an eye on this list -- hopefully we'll be expanding it as more deals come about (UPDATED, 3/17 @ 11:05 AM).

Happy St. Patty's Day!!

Southern Hospitality (1460 2nd Avenue) - By far the best special we could find! $2 Coors Light drafts, $3 Killians, $3 well drinks, $4 Jameson shots, and $5 Irish car bombs. It's worth dealing with the crowds for these prices. (212) 249-1001.

Jake's Dilemma (430 Amsterdam Avenue)- Head over to the Upper West Side for $3.50 drafts all night long. (212) 580-0556.

Dempsey's Pub (61 2nd Avenue) - This East Village watering hole will have specials all night long including $4 shots, $4 drafts, $12 pitchers, and $15 buckets of beer like Miller High Life and Rolling Rock. (212) 388-0662.

Mad River Bar & Grill (1442 3rd Avenue) - For those who want to get their drink on early in the day, this Upper East Side bar will be serving $3 domestic drafts, $4 pints of Guinness, and $5 Irish car bombs until 3PM. (212) 988-1832.

11th Street Bar (510 E 11th Street) - Avoid the crowds and head over to this bar where their normal happy hour will be in effect. That means $2 off drinks from 4PM - 9PM putting a pint of Guinness at a reasonable $4. (212) 982-3929.

Cheapshots (140 1st Avenue) - Drink enough of their $4.50 Guinness pints -- on tap all night long -- and you might start seeing leprechauns. 212-254-6631.

Bar None (98 3rd Avenue) - It ain't classy, but it's cheap! Rub arms with NYUers during this bar's daily happy hour which will be going on until 8PM. That's $3 Bud and Bud Light drafts for you. 212-777-6663.

Kabin (92 2nd Avenue) - It doesn't get much cheaper than $2 PBRs and $4 Bud drafts at this bar. Or maybe it does... all drinks are 2-for-1 until 8PM. 212-254-0204.

Stillwater Bar (78-80 E 4th Street) - Swing by this East Village bar for drink specials including $3.50 Magic Hat all night long. (212) 253-2237.


Van Diemens (383 3rd Avenue) - Another deal for early starters. This Murray Hill bar will have $5 Jameson and $3 Guinness pints until 5PM. 212-532-1123.

Flight 151
(151 8th Avenue) - Head over to Chelsea for $2 drafts and $3 well drinks from 5PM - 7PM. 212-229-1868.

Stanton Public (17 Stanton Street) - This Lower East Side bar has $4 pints of Guinness all night long + $1 off all Irish whiskey and a late happy hours from 12AM - 2AM. 212-667-5555.

McKenna Pub (250 West 14th Street) - This Irish bar won't have any drink specials, but they'll be serving free corned beef and cabbage all day. Yum! 212-255-2889.

The Levee (212 Berry Street) - We realize there are no Brooklyn places on this list. That's because we assume most Brooklyn bars will be cheap enough for you regardless. But we'll show you some love by mentioning that the normal happy hour at this Williamsburg spot will be in effect -- $1 off all drinks from 5PM - 8PM. 718-218-8787.
