If you’re looking for Happy Hour within walking distance of Columbus Circle or the Theater District, Alfie’s has over 20 beers on tap for $5 until 8pm. The one-room space has tables along the walls, a long bar with a couple TVs, and some standing tables in the middle of the room that work well for small groups. They also do drink specials after midnight if you’re craving beers and cheese curds after nursing a Jack and Coke for three hours at Wicked.

Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill
Somehow, the Blue Ribbon brand’s new spot is just as excellent as its other outposts, despite being in a Midtown hotel. This place is, however, insanely expensive.
