This Thirsty Thursday head back over to the East Village just a touch North to The Penny Farthing.
The Penny Farthing is a spacious (with two floors) old-fashioned feeling neighborhood spot. With a mix of Irish Pub and American Country, the wooden bar and homestead decor is comforting and inviting. Mixing it up between a low-key lunch place during the day and a lively social scene at night, The Penny Farthing seems to have found the key to conquering both worlds.
The Penny serves brunch, lunch, dinner and pub food at the bar. With a special brunch on weekends between 11am and 4pm with a wide range of typical brunch favs. Everything I’ve ever ordered here is delicious, including their Buffalo Wings, Spinach & Artichoke Dip, and Fish & Chips.
Happy Hour is simple. Half priced almost anything you can think of Monday thru Friday from 4pm to 7pm. Including some old time classic cocktails, like Manhattans (careful, they’re lethal), and a Southern Fizz.
The Penny can get quite crowded on the weekends, resulting in a line to get in – I always try to go on a weekday and take advantage of their happy hour since their normal prices are a little higher than average – $12-13 a cocktail.
