Bar Bevy

David Grutman and Pharrell’s sultry, new cocktail lounge, Bar Bevy now has a swanky new happy hour. Go Tuesday through Saturday, between 5 pm and 8 pm, and indulge in the “$8 'Til 8” specials. The deal is just what you’d expect; some of Bar Bevy’s popular bites, handcrafted cocktails, beer and wine are all offered at just $8 each. Order a Blackberry Summer—a mix of tequila, St. Germain, blackberry, mint and apple—and pair it with discounted bites like lobster crostini with spicy mayo and radish, arancini with preserved truffle and parmesan, or Groot dip sliders with Grandma Sylvia’s secret roast beef recipe, caramelized onions, gruyere and sauce au poivre. That will be one happy hour, indeed.

Estefan Kitchen

The Estefans know how to throw a party, so it makes sense that their namesake restaurant, Estefan Kitchen, would have one really good happy hour. Every weekday, from 4 pm to 7 pm, get two-for-one classic mojitos, red or white sangria, and well-drinks with Dewars Scotch, Pearl Vodka, Bacardi Rum or Bombay Gin. The food is just as good as the deal, so pair it with $10 Cuban quesadillas with lechon asado; $8 mojo chicken wings with guava honey hot sauce; $11 fish tacos or $8 homemade croquetas with ham, chicken or bacalao.
