From the New York City bar scene to the pub crawls in Chicago, it can be hard to find an affordable place to get a few beers without breaking the bank.

Even when you do find a dive bar, the beers are often mediocre, and the food (if any) warmed over at best.

If you live in an expensive city like New York, N.Y., San Francisco, Calif. or Honolulu, Hawaii, the balance between a cheap bar and a good night out can seem impossible to find. In each of the ten most expensive cities in the U.S., however, are ten great bars that are also some of the cheapest in the city.

Check out the best, cheapest bars in America's ten most expensive cities. From McSorley's Old Ale House in NYC to Prince O' Whales in Los Angeles, Calif., we'll tell you where to find them, how cheap they get, and what makes these bars the best.
