The Best Wednesday Happy Hours In Manhattan NYC

There’s nothing like getting hammered on Hump Day to lift your spirit and help propel you through the rest of the week.

But, finding great Happy Hour spots on Wednesdays can be daunting – especially ones that are lively on this typically slow midweek day. And, whether your a locaal or tourist, the last thing you’ll likely want is to waste your time or money somewhere boring.

So, I’m going to hook you up with the best Wednesday Happy Hours in Manhattan right now for a fun hump day!

These bars were handpicked by a native New Yorker and nightlife expert, with more than cheap drink prices in mind – we go for quality over quantity here. Besides great Happy Hour specials, these bars have a fun ambiance with good music and/or unique themes.

And, unlike my popular list of The Best Late Night Happy Hours in Manhattan, these Happy Hours aren’t limited to those that go past 6 PM. So, you should be able to find one near you that fits your day drinking schedule.

So, now for the Hump Day destinations!

If you want to feel like you have abandoned the city for a retreat in the woods, but aren’t about that hiking life, then check out The Cabin in Lower East Side, Manhattan. This gastropub has a tree as its centerpiece, floral decor, antler chandeliers, and other small touches of rustic charm that attract people who love to take selfies. But the coup de grâce, is their all day Happy Hour coined, “Marathon Wednesdays.” So, you can enjoy discounted drinks until you think the bear in the portrait is talking to you.

3 Sheets Saloon is a popular 2-level Irish pub, local hot spot, and one of my favorite college bars in Greenwich Village. The bartenders are cool, sports is on the telly, and they play Top 40 hits to keep the energy up. And if the crowd is light downstairs, be sure to check upstairs, where there’s another full bar waiting. With Wednesday Happy Hour specials that run until close, you are only a bucket of beers away from making a few new friends!
