Fortunately, there are plenty of bars in NYC serving margaritas on the cheap. Here are the best bars where the margaritas are priced so low, you may be tempted to leave work early and get a head start. By Selena Ricks-Good.

The goblet-sized frozen margaritas here are just $5 from noon to 7 p.m. daily, but for Monday and Tuesday madness, they stay $5 all night long. If money’s not an issue–or if you’re really thirsty–go for La Mama ($15), 27 ounces of sweet frozen tequila goodness.

Review & More Info

Best known as the chain of inexpensive Mexican restaurants open late (until 5 a.m. on Thursdays – Saturdays) for when you have the munchies after a night of imbibing, the frozen margaritas here are cheap any time ($5 for lime, $6 for fruit flavors). Thanks to a double happy hour (11 a.m. – 6 p.m. and 1 – 4 a.m.), they drop to the even more budget-friendly price of $2.50 – $3. Try flavors such as cactus-pear, strawberry and mango while you scarf tacos and enchiladas.

On Thursdays, this Upper East Side bar with a arcade games and a pool table offers $6 margaritas (along with Cosmos and Appletinis) all night long. Better yet, check in on Facebook or Yelp and the bar will give you a free drink. Snap some photos with your friends in the photobooth in case you have trouble remembering just how much fun you had here.
