10 L.A. Spots Where You Can Get $1 Drinks on Tax Day (and other great deals)

April 10, 2017 by Christina Champlin

It’s true, the taxman comes for us all. But even as we fulfill our patriotic duty to keep funding Uncle Sam you can take a tiny bit of solace knowing there are plenty of local spots offering some pretty great deals on Tuesday, April 18.

We are, of course, referring to $1 drinks. In total we’ve spotted 10 L.A. spots offering $1 drinks to mourn celebrate tax day. Additionally, there are number of other bars/lounges offering their own spin on tax day deals, including a tax day mule, and even one location that’s offering a complimentary first drink (!!!).

To make things easy we’ve catalogued a list of all the deals and offerings (in no particular order) after the jump. No one loves tax day, but at least you can enjoy the drinks!
