Ah, happy hour—the age-old tradition of commemorating the end of the work day with discounted adult beverages. After all, what could be more adult than being smart enough to take advantage of the money-saving specials at the best bars and restaurants in town? Whether you’re blowing off steam or simply looking for a way to quench your thirst on the cheap, here are the North Chuck happy hours you need to know about:
Monday-Friday, 4PM – 7PM
Located in an old gas station in the heart of Olde Towne Park Circle, this watering hole is home to the area’s most epic outdoor patio. Cold beers and giant, juicy burgers are mainstays here—but you’ll also find a revolving menu of delicious specials like jalapeno popper spring rolls, an avocado BLT on Challah bread, and steak salad with warm bacon balsamic vinaigrette.
$3 house liquor, $2.50 select drafts, and $2-off select appetizers go down every week night along with karaoke, bingo, Taco Tuesdays, live music, and more. Can you dig it?
Monday-Saturday, 5PM – 7PM; Wine Wednesdays, 6PM – 8PM; Saturdays, $3 Bellinis and Mimosas
Every Wednesday, the wine experts at Park Circle’s Accent on Wine bring an array of six exciting wine samples.
For just $10, guests get to indulge in carefully cultivated themes like Summer Sippers, Old World Wine, and California Reds—all while chatting with the super knowledgeable staff about everything from meal course pairings to wine preservation and everything in between. From Monday to Saturday, indulge in $4 glasses and $15 bottles of select wines and $3 select craft drafts. Bonus points for the $3 bubbly sips on Saturdays!
Friday & Saturday, 3PM – 7PM
In perhaps the most extensive happy hour in town, The Junction Kitchen & Provisions offers refreshing opportunities to imbibe, interesting twists on traditional Southern food staples, and has breakfast all day long.
From late afternoon and well into the evening on Friday and Saturday, the hair of the dog is seriously wallet-friendly with $1.75 PBR, $2 mimosas, $3 bubbles, $3.50 house liquors, $3.25 Narraganset with a pickle back (this is a Low Country must-try, btw), and $3 Fireball. Of course, to soak up all that boozy goodness, you’ll also find the practically famous $6 Buzzed Donuts and $3 daily tacos. We’re talking Insta-worthy sips and snacks at legit prices—even on Saturdays!
Monday-Friday, 4PM – 7PM; New Weekend Happy Hour
The Mill is the epicenter for local live music sans cover. This smoke-free jamming joint also has over 100 beers to accompany discovering your new favorite band. Throughout the week, get down with $1 PBR, $2 High Life or Hamm’s, and $3.50 wells. Then, keep the good vibes going strong on the weekends with more $1 PBR, $2.25 domestics, and those $3.50 wells.
