In a city that's overflowing with happy hours, the novelty of a small discount can start to wear pretty thin. To save you the disappointment, we've done our homework to find you the cheapest and most cheerful deals around town that will definitely put a smile on your face. From bargain cocktails to buy-on-get-one-frees (BOGOFs), and all-you-can-drink (and eat if you're lucky), we've got you covered.
What better way to spend the afternoon than sipping on $45 cocktails on a gorgeous terrace in the heart of Central?
