In the spirit of Black Friday and the deals that come with it, here are bars and restaurants to recently roll out a happy hour of some sort.
The cocktail bar is tendering bowls of ramen from its restaurant counterpart Revel for $7. If this sounds too good to be true, here's the hitch: The deal runs from 4 to 5 and only 10 are available each day—act fast.
Starting January 17, the Seattle Center food hall—home to such purveyors as Pie, Eltana, Skillet, and Plum—will commence an every-third-Thursday happy hour. According to Eater, all of the dozen-plus vendors will offer some food or drink deal. Also: live music, giveaways, cheap parking, and perhaps most exciting of all, giant Jenga and mini-golf.
Wine Tea Chocolate
Here at the new Fremont cafe—where tastings, game night, and even tango are a regular thing—happy hour happens daily from 5 to 7 (and all day Monday). Bites like marcona almonds or olives are just a couple of bucks; glasses of wine are $5 (and bottles $5 off). And the chocolate? Try it with a shot of espresso and Theo caramel or in sipping form for $3.
The Angry Beaver
The reasons are many to visit Tim Pipes's month-old establishment: It's a hockey bar, it's Canadian-themed, there are poutine flights. Add to that list the daily happy hour, which at 4–7 is not only generously long but also easy for the office crowd to get to—an all-too-rare thing.
T-Doug's Seatown Seabar is pimping a new discounted menu, and a couple blocks away so is his flagship restaurant. This one oyster enthusiasts will certainly want to sample. The bivalves are smoked and paired with herbed creamed cheese and oat crackers; fried and dusted in cornmeal; or mixed in stew with bacon and fennel, all for under $5.
