nice but cheap happy hour

so i'm at work and i'm getting that feeling... that feeling like i might need a happy hour after work. i was wondering if anyone can tell me about a nice happy hour below ...say.... 20th street. i'm looking for cheap drinks, possible cheap food, but those can be sacrificed if the atmosphere is outstanding. outside/porch area would be ideal. shoot!

  1. No outside and it's kinda dark inside but at Verlaine on Lower East side. until 10pm (which is pretty darn long) they have happy hour drinks: house red, house white, sangria, bloody mary and i think 2-3 varieties of martinis for $5. That's pretty cheap in my opinion -- and they have nibbles. The place is sleek looking and modern

    1. Neighborhood: Manhattan/Greenwich Village
      86 University Place
      (between 11th St & 12th St)
      (212) 255-9378

        Nearby to this is Reservior (70 University Pl) - CHEAP beers ($2 during HH) and 2 beers always availible for $3.50

        Awesome wings and munchies - Just about everything on the menu is under $10.

        Total dive - so expect little atmosphere - but get your drink and snack on for under $20

      2. La Palapa isn't bad and they have good bar snacks. Gets crowded, though...

          La Palapa is my favorite happy hour. Lure is a close second.
