Great Happy Hours

I'm off this week and looking to take advantage of some great happy hours. Whether it's for food or cocktails, beer or wine, early or late. I've got the time to make the most of all of them and I'm looking for suggestions.

I love Via Tribunali's late night $5 pizza happy hour, but what are some of your favorites?

  1. I like the HH at List. The $14 dollar bottle of red wine is better than all the other HH wine I've had [last couple times it was Vitiano 2007]. The gnochi with black truffle cream is really good and the fried calamari is was one the the better preparations I've had. I'm also a fan of the chicken breast with wild mushroom sauce served over arugula. The food is half price.

    Ivar's Acres of Clams has a good HH and I think the food is better than at the Salmon House. The mussels in coconut curry were a stand out. They have Ninkasi IPA on tap, too.

      I think my favorite current happy hour on the fancy side is Barolo. Half off all their food and $3-5 drinks. (i think that similar $14 or $15 bottles too)

      Serious Pie is nice, but ends at 5:00. (which I guess isn't a problem for you)

      Art at the Four Seasons does a cheese happy hour that I've been wanting to get to but haven't made.

      Out of tradition, I note the Elliott's oyster happy hour...

        Barolo (mentioned by GreenYoshi) and List (mentioned by seattleviking) are owned by the same people. Barolo's is also $14 bottle of wine, and its a damn decent bottle of wine. And the food is cheap, and really quite good.

        Other favs: when it's sunny Maximillien's patio, Shucker's for their oysters (all types available), Chapel for cheap martinis, Umi or Nijo for sushi, I could go on. If you have any favorites types of food/neighborhoods, I can be a little more specific...
