Saturday Happy Hour in Santa Barbara.

Looking for a good Happy Hour Saturday afternoon prior to a concert at the SB Bowl in evening.

  1. Not sure what you mean by a "happy hour" - cheap snacks, discount drink prices, hard liquor? Parking around the bowl will be your biggest concern, so you need to explore places that are walkable - mainly on Milpas Street, but downtown SB is about a 20-30 minute walk away too where there are any number of bars on State Street, but the main drinking area are way down in Olde Towne - too far to reasonably make your way back to the Bowl by starting time. I don't know of any "Happy Hour" places on Milpas Street, but that would be your place shot to explore. Maybe someone else will have better information. There is a range of refreshments available at the Bowl itself.

    Here is a list from the local restaurant blog that list "Happy Hour" - none are close by the Bowl:

    1. Link to Milpas street spots - the higher the number on North Milpas Street, the closer to the county bowl.
