Top Five Austin Happy Hours

There are few things I love more in life than a good happy hour. Luckily, some of the top restaurants in Austin love them too and offer some of the best food and drinks in town at a fraction of the price. From $5 martinis to 50 percent off on food and wine, I’m breaking down my five go to spots for happy hour in Austin.

1. Clark’s 2. Jeffrey’s 3. Buffalina Due 4. Neighborhood Sushi 5. Backspace
  1. Clark’s

Taking the top spot on my list is Clark’s. We love going to Clark’s any day and any time so I especially love going when I can get a deal on my favorite food and drinks. Will and I love a good martini–Hendricks with a twist, straight up–so you can catch us here having a little tini time and enjoying the most delicious burger and fries in town for half-off!!

The Deal:

Monday-Friday: 3-5 p.m.

$5 Martinis, oyster shooters and draft beer, half off burgers and 50 cents off oysters.

Saturday and Sunday: 3-5 p.m.

Half off all bottles of wine.

2. Jeffrey’s

Jeffrey’s is not only probably the best restaurant in town (in my opinion), they also have one of the best happy hours. I love this happy hour because they change it each night so it isn’t just the same deal every day. As a wino, I live for their Sunday night deal, which is half-off ALL wines, because I get a chance to try some of the most beautiful wines in the world at a really accessible price point.

The Deal:

Monday: All night

25 percent off all items marked with a diamond and $2 off beverages.

Tuesday-Sunday: 5-6 p.m.

25 percent off all items marked with a diamond and $2 off beverages.

Sunday: All night

Half-off any bottle from the Jeffrey’s Cellar.

3. Buffalina Due

When we first moved to Austin last year, I fell in love with Buffalina and when they closed, I was devastated. Luckily, they have a second location in north Austin and I make Will go as often as possible! Is there anything better than half-off on a beautiful bottle of wine and a couple of pizzas? I think not. A must-try if you are in Austin!

The Deal:

Seven Days a Week: 4–5:30 p.m.

Half off all wines under $100, $5 house wine, $5 draft beer, half off all pizza

4. Neighborhood Sushi

Many Austinites will tell you to try Uchi while you’re in town, but my go-to spot for sushi is Neighborhood Sushi. I love their vegetable tempura and I think their sushi is the best in Austin. They also have the perfect location right on South Congress so once you’re done with happy hour, you can walk down the street to enjoy some of the live music Austin has to offer.

The Deal:

Monday-Friday: 4:30-6 p.m.

$10 beer and a sake, $2 off drinks, 25 percent off all food.

5. The Backspace

We love the Backspace! It is a hidden gem in downtown Austin that serves incredible pizza and wines (lots of other food and drinks too, these are just my faves.)

The Deal:

Tuesday-Saturday: 5-6:30 p.m.

Half-off antipasti and half-off beers and wines by the glass.

I hope you get a chance to try these spots out soon! What are your favorite happy hours in Austin?! Leave me a comment and let me know!
