Sure, rooftop bars get you dizzying views and glamorous spaghetti-strapped crowds, but the cost for all that is unconscionable prices that mean it’ll be a long time before you can afford your next pair of spaghetti straps. Cheapen up your sky-drinking, with Thrillist’s Rooftop Tour: five lofty bars slinging specials on designated weekdays, for two weeks straight.

Monday: Brass Monkey Bar Roof Deck
5-8pm June 8th and 15th at 55 Little West 12th, near 10th Ave; 212.675.6686
2-for-1 Bud and Coors Light on the waitress-only deck. After the special, choose from 75+ beers, from draughts like Palm and Duvel, to bottles like Ommegang Abbey Ale and Old Speckled Hen — because nothing inspires drinking like monks and chickens.

Tuesday: Highbar
All night long June 9th and 16th at 790 8th Ave, at 48th; 212.956.1300
Hit this 15th floor, well-foliaged midtown aerie (cabanas up top, swank futuristic lounge one floor below) for 2-for-1 frozen drinks all night, including guava ginger margaritas, the Italian vodka/limoncello/Prosecco Sgroppino, coconut mojitos, and a passion fruit pink lemonade called Mr. Pink — sure to make you whine like Steve Buscemi, “Why do I have to drink Mr. Pink?”.

Wednesday: Salon De Ning
5-7pm June 10th and 17th at 700 5th Ave, at 55th St; 212.956.2888
Hit this ur-opulent, Oriental-themed midtown roof for Thrillist Martinis, which Ning’s serving for $12, instead of the usual $22 — which you’d buy, then waste your whole night waiting for the other two drinks you’re sure must be included in that price.

Thursday: Hudson Terrace
5-10pm June 11th and 18th at 621 W 46th St, near 12th Ave; 212.315.9400
Reserve a no-need-for-bottle-service table and get 20% off everything you drink (six bottled beers, fruit-infused sakes, carafes and pitchers of caipirinhas & margs, four flavors of mojitos & sangrias…) while you watch the sunset over the USS Intrepid, and gaze at SR-71 as you give the woman next to you a Spruce Goose.

Friday: Shang Terrace
5-8pm June 12th and 19th at Thompson LES Hotel: 190 Allen St, between Houston and Stanton; 212.460.5300
2-for-1 sangria pitchers at the recently-opened 2nd floor terrace — not technically a rooftop, but considering the generosity of their drink special, you’re not going to Shang yourself over it or anything.
