Late Happy Hour in Financial District?

Ruth Lafler Mar 29, 2011 11:38 AM

I'm meeting a friend for dinner in the Financial District a little after 6 pm Thursday and thought we might want to grab a cocktail first.

Any suggestions?

    If the weather is nice I like sitting outside for Chaya's happy hour (available at the bar and outside).

    I think the specials are $5/6 cocktails and beers and appetizers specials.

      Osha Thai Embarcadero and Cigar Bar have late happy hours (at least until 8pm I think).

            It's a beautiful bar, but do they have happy hour? I don't see anything on their website.

              I know it's only yelp but a lot of them are going there.

            B bar above Yerba Buena (next to Samovar) is perfect on a sunny day. Oysters, truffle friest, wine discounts, cocktails.

            83 Proof has great drinks.

            Tropisueño across from the Contemporary Jewish Museum has solid margaritas and discounted food.

                Yes, but none of those are in the Financial District.

                  83 Proof is. And the others are two blocks.

                    I guess I have to concede the 83 Proof is in the FiDi, since it's literally around the corner from my office. Still, I really meant north of Market -- we're meeting and eating on Sacramento.

                In fact, I'm going to happy hour with a group on Thurs. at 6:00, at Aventine: http://www.aventinesf.com/

                Only goes til 7:00, but it's pretty good - food and drinks pricewise/qualitywise. I haven't been in about 9 months or so, but we liked it a lot back then..... ETA: they also have their barbites available thru 9 p.m.

                      That's an interesting possibility. Thanks!

                        where'd you end up?
                        we didn't go to Aventine, too nice a day to be inside. We went to Pier 23, which was a zoo, but it was nice being outside.

                          We ended up at the Waterfront. Which was also kind of a zoo because of the nice weather.

                      Palio's happy hour runs until 7:
