My favorite Seattle happy hours

If there's one thing you need to know about me, it's that I'll never pass up a good happy hour. Since I've been in Seattle for a year I've had so much fun exploring my local neighborhoods and finding places that have become my favorite go-to's for meeting up with friends or enjoying a date night all for a great price for food and drinks! Here are some of my favorite spots: 

P E R C Y ' S 

Location: Ballard

Happy Hour: 4-6pm daily, all day happy hour drink specials on Monday's

Favorite Drink: The Awakened One

Favorite Food: Popcorn with Chili Butter & Cajun Spices

Pro Tip: try and snag a seat out on the outdoor patio, it's covered and has a garage door, perfect for the summer! 


MR. WEST CAFE BAR

Location: Downtown + with the best styled interior only designers could dream of. 

Happy Hour: 4-7pm (you can't beat a happy hour that goes later than 6pm!)

Favorite Drink: Any of their white wines or rosés

Favorite Food: The cheesemonger board 

Pro Tip: If you want the best grilled cheese sandwich of your life get their grilled cheese + avocado on freshly cut sourdough, it's to die for. 


THE WALRUS AND THE CARPENTER

Location: Ballard

Happy Hour: Monday through Thursday 4-6pm

Favorite Drink: Purple Rain (tequila, hibiscus, lime, pineapple, batavia-arrack) 

Favorite Food: If you come here you have to get an assortment of oysters (I typically have the waiter select a few different types), it's a must. My go-to is the beet borani with feta, pumpkins seeds and flatbread for something light but delicious. 

Pro Tip: This place is a popular spot and seating fills up fast! Try and get there right when happy hour starts to guarantee yourself a spot. 


Location: Fremont

Happy Hour: Everyday 4-7pm; 9-11pm on Monday through Thursdays

Favorite Drink: Moscow Mule or Mint Julep

Favorite Food: Lamb sliders and Popcorn Shrimp

Pro Tip: If you're a whiskey drinker, this place is for you! It has a great outdoor seating area with string lights -- a perfect summer spot and perfect for people-watching.  


Oliver's Twist

Location: Magnolia (they also have one in Greenwood, but I personally like the smaller Magnolia location better because it is more intimate and has better overall interior decor) 

Happy Hour: Tuesday through Thursdays 5-7pm

Favorite Drink: Moscow Mule and Giles (vodka, blood orange, elderflower, bubbly and served up)

Favorite Food: Bread salad (cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, arugula, taggiasca olives, pinenuts, pesto) 

Pro Tip: If you're visiting the Mangolia location get there right when happy hour starts, this spot is small so get there early to get a seat! 


Volterra

Location: Ballard

Happy Hour: Monday-Friday from 12pm to 6pm, Saturday and Sunday 3pm-6pm

Favorite Drink: Limoncello Rosemary Drop

Favorite Food: Lamb meatballs 

Pro Tip: All of the food here is delicious and filling! If you want to try a bunch of different things split several of the food items with whoever you are dining with.
