  1. I'm partial to Verlaine, even though they raised the price of their lychee martinis (not as revolting as it sounds) to $5.

      That sounds like a bargain to me.

        ha! not revolting. i like lychee martinis. ill check it out. we're looking for something like nolita house (husband thinks its overpriced, ive never been and just want cheese) or prune (bigger menu).

          will it be packed like can't get a seat at the bar around 6? otherwise think its perfect.

            You should be fine (and you have 2 minutes - go!). It's a pretty big place, and I've never seen it that crowded.

      2. Paladar on Ludlow is another good one. $4-5 drinks from 5-7.

          And they make a pretty good michelada, although I make a better one.

        2. I honestly love Marshall Stack. It only has a dollar off drinks but it carries an awesome array of beer and wine.

          1. This time of year-- Lorely, The Delancey rooftop

            1. Well my spot had been The Fifth Ward when I wasn't working. Happy hour starts at noon and ends at 7. Beers are 2 for 1. Never had the food but it looks like fine bar food. And yes, it's right off East Houston.

              On second thought though, it might not be what you're looking for. They do have an outside area in the back...
