Raw bar happy hour union square / flatiron

Looking for a good raw bar / oysters happy hour for tonight in the union square / flatiron area. Quality is very important but also want a happy hour special on oysters. What I've found so far:

Shaffer City Oyter bar
Blue Water Grill
City Crab
BLT Fish

Leaning towards Blue Water Grill but not sure if they have a happy hour special.

Please offer your thoughts.

Thank you

      1. The Mermaid Inn isn't exactly in the locations that you mentioned but it is not far and has a good oyster happy hour every evening from when they open til 7. Get ther early to get a good spot at the bar. There are drink specials and dollar oysters that are very tasty and fresh. I enjoyed the one on 2nd Avenue near 5th St. Great service. The bar at the Greenwich Village location on MacDougal St. seemed a little more cramped. I didn't even stick around to see if it would thin out.

        1. Thanks guys. Ended up skipping the happy hour due to scheduling and ended up at blue smoke who's oysters were delicious.
