Drinks after a long day at work are a must — especially when the day is rough (which is often, unfortunately). It’s always convenient to go somewhere right by the office, but if you have the time and the means of transportation, try out a different place with a host of Happy Hour specials. This year, allow us to suggest the home of the Best Happy Hour in Queens where the clock will never get you down.
