Happy Hour at The Playwright in New Haven

The Playwright is right around the corner from my apartment so I go there quite a bit. I think it is a great Irish bar - the atmosphere is fantastic, and the Guiness pints are delicious. Most times I go, it's not during their happy hour, but I have been to it a few times. All in all I wasn't very impressed - $1 off drinks isnt that great and the free buffet was lacking. The regular menu food is pretty good in my opinion though, albeit slightly pricey for bar food.

Despite these comments I still really enjoy going here - it's worth the slightly higher prices for the great environment. On weekends this place is packed and a lot of fun. You can check out their daily deals here: The Playwright in New Haven Happy Hour Specials.

TK's American Cafe

I have been a pretty big fan of T.K.s for as long as I've lived in New Haven. It's kind of a dive frankly, but their wings are really good and I absolutely love their Chicken Fingers.

Foremost a sports bar, T.K.s has tons of TV's, several of which are right at the tables so you can watch whatever you want. They have a big patio that is good for nice summer evenings too.

What matters most though in this discussion is their happy hour - which is stellar! Tuesdays and Thursdays are my favorite days because 7pm until midnight you can get wings for $.20 each and pitchers of miller lite for $7. I usually get a pitcher, 10 wings and a basket of fries and its just about $10. Can't beat that.

They used to have a deal where you got your age in free wings and a bottle of champagne on your birthday but I believe they have cancelled this or at least severly cut back on what you get - 12 free wings maybe?

Regardless, don't expect a glamorous experience but do expect a good deal on some tasty food and drinks.

Burgers Tuesday Night at Hot Tomatos

Tonight I went to Burger night at Hot Tomatos on 261 College Street. This is one of my favorite happy hours in New Haven. You get a respectable burger and fries and any draft beer they have on tap (they have many) for $5. I got a Guinness.

The restaurant itself is very nice - very classy in fact. The bar was packed tonight - I used to go and it was basically empty. Word must be getting out. There were two waitresses working tonight and they were both very friendly and helpful. I strongly suggest checking it out! They have great specials other days of the week as well.

New Haven Happy Hour Listings

Hi everyone. I started up a website a few weeks back called www.newhavenhappyhours.com - I have lived here in downtown New Haven for over a year now and have been really impressed by all of the great bars there are within walking distance. It seemed like any night of the week I could go out and find another great special somewhere. I decided to share the wealth and set up a website devoted to listing all these great deals.

I have now decided to set up a blog for the site too! Now I can comment on specific happy hours I go to - I've set up comments too so everyone can put in their two cents. Please check back for discussions.

Thanks for visiting!
