When we did a poll last year of what types of Happy Hours you’d be most interested in hearing about, you guys all seemed to be in consensus that high-end happy hours, for a low-end price, are the best. A fancy spot where you probably couldn’t afford the food normally, but will get to try a glimpse of the menu, along with some discounted booze, for a lovely promotional price.
Second to fancy-pants happy hours were happy hours that last past 7pm, so you can actually make it in time post-work to enjoy more than one cocktail.
This happy hour is both high end AND lasts til 8pm. Woop woop!
Mon – Fri, 5pm – 8pm
Details: $7 appetizers + 1/2 off all drinks
This spot on Burton is pretty darned romantic. Cute little greenery & floral covered patio with strings of lights hanging from above and on every wall. Its been ages now (read: my 20th birthday) since I last went to Il Cielo because it is so freakin pricey, but I do recall the pasta being delicious and the ambiance fantastic (and you can actually trust me on this one, since I was under 21 and thus unable to let glasses of wine blur or inflate my impression!)
And since it goes until 8pm, you won’t have to risk speeding ticket and accident to make it in time. In fact, if you and the boo get off work in time, you could make it an early-ish date night all for a happy hour price. Love love love.
