Happy Hour with Good Eats

now that it's sunny out, my husband & I are all about getting out for Happy Hour in the downtown core
We like to nosh too, esp on free bar snacks. Or on special price appies. But, free or cheap is only interesting if it's good. Don't want to waste those bites on untasty calories.
What places have great noshes to go with their happy hour, free, specially priced, or otherwise?
Harbour 60 Steakhouse has complimentary hand sliced serrano ham, crisp double smoked bacon, assorted olives and pickles, spicy cheese straws and other goodies available at the bar--all free with cocktails.
But since you are looking for "free" goodies the price of their cocktails may be a deterrent for you.
We've been meaning to scope out Harbour 60 (owe the Rabbit-sister a steak dinner)... do you know if they have a set "Happy Hour," or is this standard bar fare with cocktails at any time? Sounds like a good research trip before finalizing choice-of-steakhouse. And do they have a skilled barkeep (I'm betting on yes)?
Every time I've been there the bartender has proferred some type of food to nibble on--olives and feta, spanish banderillas( pickle brochettes) etc. The serrano ham and double smoked bacon usually come out later in the day-- 4 to 5 pm-- and are available all night.
The bartenders are excellent -especially Franco. If you need something to nibble on he is very accomodating--as are the other bartenders.
