Hair of the Dog, one of the rowdiest, most turn-up bars in the city, has half-priced bloody Marys all day on Sundays until 4 p.m.

They've got unbelievable sliders which are stuffed with cheese, unreal wings, top notch nachos, and TVs everywhere you turn. So watching Sunday sports while you drink all day is a yes.

theginmill A new month but the same good old bar! Join us! #TheGinMillNYC #PerfectCombination #UpperWestSide #UWS

$3 drinks at The Gin Mill on Sundays for the win.

Don't want to spend a whole lot getting drunk on Sundays on the Upper West Side? Well, it doesn't really get much better than $3 drinks, does it?


Yeah, we agree. It doesn't. The Gin Mill chooses a different drink, draft, bottle, and shot every Sunday to be $3. So you never know what you'll get. One Sunday you might be able to drink a $3 tequila shot, the next Sunday it might be Fireball.

Either way, the $3 special is a blast, and it goes on from 8 p.m. to close. if you go to The Gin Mill on a Sunday that isn't football season between 11:30 a.m. and 8 p.m., the whole bar is half-priced. Winning.

8. Merrion Square (1840 Second Avenue)

Like skee-ball? 

Great, because this Upper East Side gem is perfect for that. They're also great for excellent drink and food deals on Sundays.

You want to know about them? Great, we'll tell you about them.

All day long on Sundays at Merrion Square, they've got $4 Yuengling drafts, $4 well liquor drinks, $5 glasses of red and white wine, and $6 dark and stormys. 

Of course, all this drinking will get you pretty hungry, right? Good thing Merrion Square offers free buffalo wings with every pitcher of beer purchased (besides Yeungling and PBR).

You can also get a free hamburger at Merrion Square with the purchase of a drink.
