Home to some of the city’s best shopping, street style, and luxury living, SoHo provides plenty to smile about. Now, feel even happier when visiting fashion’s favorite New York neighborhood at these local businesses serving deals and drinks in equal measure. Just in time for five o’clock, here are the best happy hours in SoHo, New York City.

Pera Soho

Come hungry to Pera Soho’s happy hour, when the popular Mediterranean eatery serves affordably priced mouthwatering mezze and discounted drinks to wash it all down. Every day from 4 to 7 pm, signature cocktails, select wines, draft beers, and your choice of two mezze dishes, such as house-made hummus and seasoned lamb sliders, can each be snagged for just $7.

Lure Fishbar

With its nautical décor and menu of freshly caught finds, Lure Fishbar makes every visit feel like a vacation. A weekday happy hour from 5 to 7 pm at this upscale spot features $10 cocktails, $8 wines, and $6 beers served alongside elevated bar snacks, such as oyster shooters and caviar-topped deviled eggs. Tip: The restaurant’s expansive dinner menu is well-worth sticking around for post-happy hour.


SoHo hot spot Papatzul is in the business of “redefining the Mexican dining experience,” and as a side effect, raising the bar for happy hour expectations. From 4 to 8 pm, Latin-loving locals can enjoy $6 margaritas, $5 sangria, and some of the best guac outside of Mexico.

Botanica Bar

It’s worth braving the crowds at Botanica Bar, where above-average happy hour deals ensure packed rooms and padded wallets. Snag a seat on the bar’s eclectically mismatched furniture anytime before 8 pm, and enjoy craft beers, wines, mixed drinks, and even ciders, most of which are priced between $4 and $5.

Dos Caminos

Judging from its five locations scattered across the city, Dos Caminos is a rare exception to New Yorkers’ “no chains” rule. The Mexican restaurant-bar is a SoHo go-to any time of day, but perhaps especially on weekdays between 3 and 6 pm and from 9 pm to close. Check out this chain’s happy hour for $10 tequila tasting flights (they’ve got over 100 types of tequila), beer, sangria, and margaritas priced at $4 to $8, and $6 bocaditos, including made-to-order guacamole and three-cheese chorizo fundido.

Galli Restaurant

Regardless of the kind of day you had, Italian comfort food—and a trip to Galli Restaurant—is always a good idea. The weekday happy hour at this Italian eatery is worth saving your appetite for, as arancini, stuffed mushrooms, and discounted wines, cocktails, and more are secured at steal prices from 4 to 7 pm.

Spring Lounge

Living by its slogan of “Life is short. Drink early,” SoHo’s Spring Lounge starts pouring drinks as early as 8 am. While you’ll never have an unhappy hour here, visiting during certain times ensures some smile-prompting perks. Time your trip for Wednesday after 5 pm to enjoy free hot dogs cooked in your bartender’s choice of beer of the week or on Sunday after 12 pm to snag a free bagel with all the fixings.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
