Where to Drink on Memorial Day Weekend 2018 in New York City

There’s no better way to usher in the start of summer than enjoying the finally warm weather and sipping on some cocktails. These New York spots are all celebrating the official start of the new season and honoring our armed forces in their own unique ways. Why not join in on the fun?
 
This unique Williamsburg outpost is part bar, part movie theater. The living-room vibe and fully stocked bar make it unexpectedly fun spot to spend an afternoon. Head there on Memorial Day for a screening of the 80’s classic, Dirty Dancing, and sip on their special beverage of the evening: watermelon margaritas in honor of the movie’s iconic scene. (308 Bedford Ave.; 718-782-3468)
 
Known for the uninhibited crowds and rowdy evening affairs, House of Yes in Bushwick is always the place to go for a fun-filled night out. This year, check out their 3rd Annual YES Memorial Day BBQ + Party to that pays tribute to all things Americana. (2 Wyckoff Ave.)
 
Like always, Memorial Day coincides with Fleet Week. On Saturday, head to Bryant Park’s Southwest Porch to honor those in uniform and enjoy sipping your cocktails in the sunshine. Service members will receive a discount, and all guests will be treated to live music at 3:30PM and again at 5PM. (41 W. 40th St.; 212-840-0324)
 
Stage48
For something a little different, head to Stage48 to partake in their Memorial Day and Fleet Week silent disco. Pop on your personal wireless headphones and tune into the sets of three different DJs and entry before midnight secures you $8 well drinks for the evening. (605 W. 48th St.; 212-957-1800)
