5 Bar Crawls Happening In America This Summer That You Seriously Can't Miss

Do you find yourself going to the same bar every weekend with your friends? It's time to break free from your boozy rut this season — Spoon University has rounded up the most amazing bar crawls happening in America this summer, whether you live in New York City, Boston, Washington D.C., or San Francisco. Because no matter what coast you live on, we all have something in common: everyone loves good drink deals, and a night out with friends (whether or not you actually remember the evening remains to be seen).

The best part about a bar crawl is that you get to hit up spots you would normally never visit otherwise, and if you're traveling to a new city, bar crawls are great for exploring hidden gems off the beaten, tourist-filled path (a.k.a. the worst kind of path). Plus, you can usually get tickets for a pretty great deal. Happy boozin'!

Whether you’re in a new city for an internship or the city you call home, you need to know the best places to rage. Work hard, play harder, amiright?

If you’ve never had the experience of no cover charge, sweet drink deals, and good times with a group of randos all in one night, you need to attend one of these bar crawls this summer.

Pub Crawl New York is the perfect solution to your raging needs if you don’t know exactly when you’ll be in NYC next. Offered every Wednesday through Saturday in your choice of either the East or West Village, this sick deal includes four venues, drink specials, and free club admission.

The best part? It’s $15-20, depending on the night. Can I get a hell yeahhhhh?

2. Nob Hill Pub Crawl, San Francisco

You definitely didn’t travel to San Fran just to get that selfie in front of the Golden Gate. You went there to get drunk and eat great food while looking at the bridge.

So when you’re planning your foodcation, you have to add this pub crawl to your list. Every weekend in Nob Hill you’ll get shot and drink specials at three bars, and a free VIP club admission for just $18. Apparently the club is one of the hottest, so like you just have to go.

Yes, it’s an America-themed bar crawl. I’m sorry, do you hate July 4? I didn’t think so.

Time to turn up for our nation’s birthday — D.C. edition. On June 27 from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m., for just $20 you’ll get: drink specials, a freedom mug, America beads, a free raffle entry, and $2 slices of pizza. Nobody hates free things. No one.

4. Red, White, and Brew, Boston

Let’s be real here, we all love American-themed parties because we love being American. We’re the sh*t. So any chance to dress up in our three majestic colors means we’ll be there.

On July 11, we can break out the red, white, and blue while also doing our old pal Sammy Adams a favor — getting wasted. For $16 dollars you get free covers at 10 bars, and $3 drink specials from noon to 7 p.m.

You also get all the unnecessary freebies you could ever wish for: a koozie, American flag socks, sunglasses, a USA pin button, an inflatable USA guitar, temporary tattoos, and patriotic beads. #MURICA

5. Rooftop Crawl, NYC

Rooftop bars are bae. That’s obvious. So do I even have to ask if you’ll be there?

From 6 p.m. to midnight, a Rooftop Crawl ticket will take you to four ah-mazing rooftop venues that have drink specials just for you. Ticket prices vary depending on the night, but generally range from $25-45 for individual tix. If your entire entourage plans on going, take a look at the group deals for sure.

Don’t forget your phone, because you’re def gunna want to insta this.

July 16-18. Get pumped.
