Scout, located at the Thompson Hotel, serves up drinks with Seattle-esque monikers–a Cap Hill is bourbon, orange bitters, ginger beer.

The Nook

Over in West Seattle, the Nook rolled out a new happy hour in April and now, after many, many requests, will stay open just a little later, until 11pm. A recently added little patio means soaking up some Seattle sunshine with Nook's new pineapple- and habanero-infused rum daiquiri in hand. Tue–Thu & Sun 5–7

Cafe Hitchcock

Brendan McGill's all-day cafe debuted a new dinner service earlier this month, and with that graced us with a happy hour as well. Seven-dollar cocktails and house wines are accompanied by small plates like local oysters, Lan-Roc charcuterie, and rockfish en papillote. Mon 3–5, Tue–Sat 3–7


Dubbed "V2," the eager-turned-accessible South Lake Union eatery's new opening came with a revived cocktail hour. Including spinach and artichoke dip, crispy squid, and crispy wings, the small bites are all under $10. 2–6 daily


The new family-style, Mexico City–inspired Pioneer Square restaurant launched its happy hour shortly after it opened. Housemade salsa for $3, guac and queso for $5, al pastor for $7, and a dollar-off draft beers. 4–6:30 daily

Dino's Tomato Pie

This Brandon Pettit pizzeria caters to the generations (just check out the website) by stocking its happy hour with $4 Fernet shots and $2 beers. And if you know what Fernet is, it definitely shows what generation you’re in. 4–6 daily


Thompson Hotel made the 2017 Conde Nast Traveler's Hot List and this restaurant sister to the Nest is a big part of that. Proving to be the champion of summer with a slew of events, the courtyard crawfish boil is just the start. But any other day the happy hour is dubbed the “Crazy Eights” for $8 bites and drinks. Sun–Thu, 3–6
