New York City’s best happy hour spots await you and your squad on Summer Fridays. Or on any day, really.

’Tis the season.

Summer officially kicked off a few weeks ago over Memorial Day weekend. We’re now well into June. That can only mean one thing: the season of Summer Fridays is upon us, all rejoice 🙌. And if you’re in NYC, that’s your cue to finding the coolest — dare we say most photogenic? — happy hour spots to get your frosé on and take to the ‘Gram while the natural light is still maximal for prime social shares.

The thing is, New York City is not exactly lacking in hot happy hour spots. In fact, it’s bursting with them, and the abundance of choice can really leave an Instagrammer paralyzed, feel me? The Big Apple’s establishments are always at the forefront of hospitality trends, and trying to hit up all that it has to offer would take you more than all summer long, if not longer.

So we did what any good Insta samaritan would do and went in on the backend to find the most popular happy hour spots in NYC, aka the most instagrammed, because not everyone can always make it out East when work lets out on Summer Fridays.

Bring your patronage and photography skills to any of the ‘grammable establishments below and become the one deemed most in-the-know among your circle. Then do yourself another solid and grab a road soda or a cone and head to any of these fine sandy shores within the five boroughs… Then recover from your antics at brunch the next day.
