Beat the Heat With These 7 Happy Hours
The top new deals in town
Happy hour goers looking for an adventurous beverage offering should head to Huger Street in North Central, as Renzo is serving up house beer plus a shot for $6 and a mystery wine selected by the staff. For food, look for chef Evan Gaudreau’s Detroit-style square slices along with small bites like warm olives and roasted radishes.
This new-ish Upper King street Italian eatery is offering a happy hour featuring $4 house wine and $6 specialty cocktails from 4-6 p.m. every Tuesday through Sunday. Find pizza and small bites like prosciutto wrapped pears to accompany the beverage selection.
Tu recently began an early bird special served daily from 5-6 p.m. All food and beverage items are $7, with the food mirroring the eclectic dinner offering that frequently changes at Tu. Patrons will not be disappointed with the portion size of these “small” plates, and the patio area provides an outdoor escape.
The entire bar is half price from 4-8 p.m. Monday through Friday at this new Upper King street hot spot. Also look for $2 sliders and additional daily specials during this weekday happy hour.
Downtown residents are flocking to Shem Creek to watch the sunset at Mount Pleasant’s newcomer Saltwater Cowboys. A menu filled with creative appetizers, seafood, and creek cocktails are the ideal way to end the day or start the night.
Millers All Day
This brunch-centric King street hot spot extends their offering from 4-7 p.m. with a happy hour featuring mimosas, brunch punch, and, of course, Miller High Life. Find the already-famous Miller’s bacon, egg, and cheese along with a version of caramel popcorn, known as “bacon jacks.”
One Broad Street
One Broad Street is not only a place to grab brunch or find hipsters sipping cortado’s by the window. The happy hour service is ever-changing, and a lot of times the only way to find out what to expect is via their Instagram feed. Diners can look for inventive small plates — think charred cauliflower or beet carpaccio — and a featured larger plate to go with creative cocktails and craft beers.
