Best Happy Hour in Austin

There’s nothing like washing away the day’s work with a Happy Hour with friends – but where are the best places to find them here in Austin? We took on the unenviable (hah) task of going out to as many happy hours as we could to find the best ones out there so we could share them with you, our best friends and our best community!

Kicking off our blog on the best Happy Hours in Austin is Uchi & Uchiko – because it’s a great way to sample the mind-blowing menu at a fraction of the cost. Happy Hour here runs from 5pm-6:30pm where you can pick up the most amazing rolls at a cheaper price – along with Tyson Cole classics and Sake for just $3! Located at 801 S. Lamar Blvd, it comes with a complimentary valet.

Next up on our blog on the best Happy Hours in Austin is another great place to go for Happy Hour because of the drop in prices is the upscale Jeffery’s. They take their Happy Hour seriously too; it goes all night on Mondays, and runs from 4:30pm-6:30pm Tues-Sunday. You can expect appetizers for 50% off and $2 off drinks (cocktails, beers, glasses of wine) at the bar. Located at 1204 West Lynn, they’re like a gastropub with items such as Crispy Fried Gulf Oysters, English Pea Tortellini and Smoked Chilled Tomato Soup on the menu. We loved it!

Finishing our blog on the best Happy Hours in Austin is Parkside located at 301 E. 6th Street. Happy Hour here goes from 5pm-6:30pm and you can find half-price bar menu items (such as their Oyster Platter or French Fries) – and half price beer and cocktails.
