If you like to eat, chances are you like to drink (read: a lot of you are freakin’ lushes), so I thought maybe it was time to introduce a happy hour column to the site. Every week, our Happy Hour Correspondent posts about a different bar in Midtown that fits the Midtown Lunch mentality: unhealthy food, not lame (unless it’s lame in a cool way), and most importantly… cheap.
Whilst sitting in my local pub in Queens last week, a fellow walked in the door at about 9 pm, and he was completely wankered — but in a good, happy way. I asked him where he had been, and he said he’d been drinking all day at Banc Cafe (3rd Ave btw. 30 + 31) in Midtown that was in the space of an old bank. Even though it’s right on the edge of the Midtown Lunch boundaries, I checked out their website and it showed many happy hour deals that spanned several hours of the day. Here they are, slightly higher than the website claims:
Monday – Wednesday 4 – 10 pm / Thursday 4 – Midnight / Friday 4 – 8 pm
Selected cocktails, $7, Cab or Chardonnay $6, or Pints of Bud Light or Banc Ale $4.50, or Bottles of Miller Lite $4.00. Wowie!
