When: Weekdays, 4-8pm
The Deal: $5 Beer, Wine, & Well Drinks
If you’re organizing a group happy hour for you and a bunch of colleagues, Draught 55 has the space to accommodate everyone. There are multiple levels to this bar, and there’s even an an “atrium” area that looks like someone tried to build a pub in a greenhouse (and succeeded). Happy hour is a deal here by just about any standard, and there are plenty of draft beers to choose from. Also, the food menu is enormous, with vegetarian and gluten-free options.
Draught 55 is a multi-level bar with several different rooms, some of which can be rented out to private parties. The atrium fits up to 100 people, but you might be in the market for something more like the cellar bar. It’s an intimate basement space with its own private bar, and it’s a good middle-of-the-road option for a work event. If your boss is making you arrange a company party that has to be in Midtown, this is not your worst option.
