As far as unofficial holidays go, we can’t think of a better excuse for celebrations than National Happy Hour Day on November 12.
Because we love you, our dedicated blog readers, a few of our team members have rounded up our favorite cozy, local spots where you can belly up to the bar and enjoy happy hour specials this fall.
Cheers! You’re welcome.
Sarah – Reserve Wine & Food
When the weather turns cold, I love to head to the ever-cozy Reserve. They have an incredible staff and excellent happy hour specials, including $5 featured cocktails and fun food specials. It’s the perfect way to try something new. Pro tip: order the burger, you won’t be disappointed.
Kayden – Rockwell
Hands down the best happy hour in town. Food is great, drinks are better, and the staff is lovely. Plus, the happy hour drink specials go until 7pm, where most others end at 6pm. Here’s a little secret: the Republic side opens at 4pm if you’re looking for a quiet place to sit and get work done.
Emily – Maru
I live in the Eastown area, and I will take any chance I can get to walk over to Maru and cozy up in a booth with a good bottle of wine and an unreasonable amount of sushi. They have great happy hour deals every Monday through Friday from 2:30pm to 5:30pm, and again on the weekend from 11:30am to 3:00pm. Pro tip: go on Wednesdays and take advantage of the $3 off glasses of wine or $12 off bottles of wine.
Kim – HopCat Knapp’s Corner
Now that I live in the bustling metropolis that is Northview, my happy hour options are on the outskirts of our great city. Thankfully, Hopcat followed me when I moved, and their new location on the East Beltline is too legit to quit. The happy hour during the week runs from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., which is a little early, but I’m not a quitter – so you shouldn’t be either. They have ½ off shareables, $1.50 off drafts, cocktails for $3 (this includes TITOs), $5 burgers and pizza.
Megan – Brick Road Pizza
What’s a happy hour blog without wine specials? Brick Road Pizza is a favorite located right in the heart of Eastown, and they’re proud to offer mouthwatering food for omnivores and vegans alike. Brick Road has half off bottles and glasses of wine every Wednesday from 6pm-11pm. That five-hour window gives you plenty of time to sit back, relax, and motivate yourself to get through the rest of the week. While you’re there, don’t miss out on the Buffalo Tofu Pizza (trust me: it’s amazing). Pair it with a nice sweet white to counteract that heat, and it’s a match made in heaven.
Chelsea – Gray Skies Distillery
A large selection of creative, hand-crafted cocktails paired with a cozy, eclectic atmosphere is exactly what you’ll find at Gray Skies Distillery’s happy hour. Better yet, that delicious cocktail (that you’ll be day dreaming about for weeks to come) is only $6 on Mondays-Fridays before 6pm. When visiting Gray Skies during happy hour with great company, and an endless supply of board games, there’s no shortage of entertainment!
Morgan – Luna
If you love chips, queso, and guac, look no further. Authentic Mexican food and drinks does not get better than Luna, and they source local ingredients! My personal favorite happy hour deal is the $4 salsa flight and the $5 margs, but there are plenty of specials to choose from. Happy hour lasts until 7pm, so pull up a chair and stay a while.
Don’t walk there, run there – better yet, Uber or Lyft.
We are always looking for fun people to join us during happy hour, so if you want to chat marketing, or are just looking for a new spot to try, give us a call!
Please note: these happy hour specials are accurate at the time of publishing. If by promoting these deals, these places are over-run with traffic and adjust their specials, please don’t blame us.
