Late Night Cheap Eats in Boston

Late Night Cheap Eats

The MBTA has extended hours on the weekends now, and maybe you are out later too. Just because you are out past happy hour specials, doesn’t mean you cannot find late night food deals and drink specials in Boston.

Keep in mind that some specials mentioned below are “while supplies last” and your experience may vary depending on the night and crowd. Also, some bars on this list (like some of the Faneuil Hall bars for instance) may have cover charges on certain nights or starting at a certain time. If you have any questions regarding cover charges, it would be best to contact the bar directly.

If you are looking to have a fun weekend night out and have a tight budget, I’d recommend finding a few bars with great deals near each other, so you have a back-up bar just in case a deal doesn’t work or you can’t get into a certain bar. I always have a back-up plan if my ideal spot doesn’t work the way I wanted it too.

As a side note, I am looking to redesign my cheap eats page to make it more user-friendly since I know the tab idea isn’t working well on all screens, and it’s a lot more time consuming for me to edit changes. If you are tech and design savvy (or know someone who is) and can help redesign the cheap eats page, please send me an e-mail at Kate {at} BostonOnBudget.com. Thank you!

Join Bar Louie’s Crew to Receive a Free Appetizer at Bar Louie Fenway!

Last week I received a really great tip on Twitter that I wanted to share! If you join Bar Louie’s “Louie Crew” with a valid e-mail address, you will receive a complimentary appetizer when you sign-up! Bar Louie’s newest location by Fenway is perfect timing for October baseball! :) They also have a weekday Happy Hour from 4-7pm that will be added to the cheap eats list soon!

I signed up for the Louie Crew online here, but it took 6 days for the offer to hit my inbox. My free appetizer expires on 10/30/13. However, I believe you can also sign-up at the restaurant to receive this freebie a little quicker! Go Sox!

Thanks, @JWLevitt!
