Recommended Happy Hours In Austin

Because paying full price is for chumps!

There are few things not to love about happy hour, especially in a city like Austin where drinking and eating is a way of life. Below you will find DEEP discounts on food (no $1 off here!) and drinks that will truly make it the happiest hour around.

Salty Sow

As one of the "fancier" options on my list, this trusted neighborhood gem has given Austinites so many good dishes over the years but they always come through strong with their happy hour! With $5 carnitas and pork belly tacos, truffled eggs and crispy brussels, there is something for everyone. Paired with wine and cocktail deals ranging from $4-6, you'll be impressed at the quality for the price.

Happy Hour Runs 4:30-6:30 Every Day

Native Hostel

One of my haunts on the east side of 35 rolled out a happy hour last fall that I would recommend to anyone that hasn't considered this happening spot for a place to sit and relax after work. With $5 treats like Barbacoa tostadas, flaky vegetable egg rolls, and a tasty Bahn mi, you'll see why this is one of my favorite places to nosh. Wash this down with a $4 Prosecco and you'll have your evening starting off on the right foot!

Happy Hour runs all day Monday and 4-7pm Tues-Friday

Hopdoddy's slogan is "burgers worth waiting in line for" and even at the normal price, they' ain't lying...but for $5?! I'll be stampeding the door. During their awesome happy hour, you can get a select burger, a beer and wine and legendary parmesan truffle fries for $5 each!

Happy Hour runs Monday to Friday 3-6:30

Jack Allen's Kitchen

If you have already heard about Jack Allen's awesome brunch, then let me hip you to another best-kept secret, their happy hour! From 3-7 all of their many appetizers like green chile pork queso, rib quesadillas, sliders and bacon-wrapped quail are 50% off!

Happy Hour runs Monday to Friday 3-7pm

North Italia

While I'm not in the Domain all the often, when I am, I swing through North Italia for their notorious "Bottle and a Board" for $20. Wine and cheese not your style? Well, you can also score a pizza and beer for $12 which will leave your belly, and wallet full!

Monday - Thursday 3pm to 6pm; half off bottles of wine

Peached Tortilla

I am wildly biased because I LOVE Peached Tortilla but their "Social Hour" is a great opportunity to try all of their classics at a much lower price point. Dive into heaps of bacon jam brussels, Kula pork tacos, and blistered shishitos for only a few bucks. Swig is back with  $6 cocktail made by their MASTER bartenders and you are set up for an amazing night.

Happy Hour runs Mon-Fri from 5-7pm

TLC Austin

5$ bites like 1/2dz oysters, 1/2lb of mussels and hush puppies are the reason this spot is alway voted a TOP happy hour. Wash it all down with $5 margs and you are on your way to a perfect evening!

Happy Hour runs Tues-Fri from 3-7pm and all day Monday

Second Bar and Kitchen Domain

One of the newest happy hours in Austin has some really great variety if you're looking for a wider range of options. For $5, you'll be able to snag treats like truffle fries, buffalo fried pickles and bleu cheese dates. For a slight upgrade to $10, options like ceviche, burgers and an array of pizzas are all up for grabs. The Terrace happy hour is EXTRA special because desserts like a chocotaco, and mini pb sandwiches are $3! Pair that with a drink for $5 and you're on your way to the happiest hour of the day!

Happy Hour Runs 3 – 6pm daily/ 11 P M – 2 am Fri and Sat

Licha's Cantina

For just $5, you can get anything off of the Licha's happy hour menu, that's a deal that I can afford! Serving up Mexico City soul food, Licha's will be a safe bet for all of your happy hour needs like their spicy mules, margaritas and bites like sopecitas and quesadillas!

Happy Hour Runs Tuesday-Friday from 4pm-6pm

Some days you just want nachos and margaritas and you know what? That's okay because Chuys has you covered! During happy hour, you can dine on a FREE nacho bar and deeply discounted margaritas for $5. If you're looking to punch it up a bit, the premium margs will run you around $8 which is still a steal.

Happy Hour Runs Mon – Fri 4pm to 7pm
