Happy hump day! Since you made it through the first half of the week, why not treat yourself to happy hour? You deserve it. Sitting at work reading our website all day can be exhausting and we are always here to give you an excuse (and places) to drink. Try one or try them all. We won’t judge.


  • The Black Cat: Celebrate hump day by going to Wet Hot Wednesday at The Black Cat (things just got real weird, real fast). Every Wednesday in July, you can watch a free movie with $5 drink specials Backstage. Doors open at 8pm.
  • ALSO-FRINGE FESTIVAL IS KICKING OFF TOMORROW. Happy hour features $4 Stella tall boys and all sorts of affordable and delicious food. Click here for the full scoop.

  • Madhatter: In honor of summer, this D.C. restaurant is holding happy hour from 4pm-8pm out on its patio. Specials include $3 rail cocktails, $3 miller lite and yuengling drafts and $4 frozen mango margaritas. What makes this place so great? Thirsty Thursday! If you want to stay after 8pm (yolo, right?), they have $1 beer night from 8pm-close. Nope, that is not a typo. Take all those dollar bills you’ve been saving for the strip club and go get wasted. Much better use of your money.

  • Izakaya Seki: Switch up your happy hour routine by checking out this Japanese restaurant. Izakaya Seki announced last month that it would be starting a happy hour from 4pm-7pm. Customers get a small bite and either a Sapporo draft or a glass a shochu for $5.
  • The Heights: Enjoy The Heights’ extensive happy hour menu from 4pm-7pm Monday through Friday. From $1.50 taquitos on Tuesdays to $2.50 rail drinks on Thursdays and Fridays, there are great options every day of the week. They also have an 80-seat outdoor patio, so bring all of your friends. If you don’t have any, you can (get drunk and) make some!
  • Urbana: If you are looking to get a little classy, Urbana has $5 wines and sparklers, $4 beers, $1 oysters AND discounted pizza.


  • Bistrot Lepic: Stay classy (LiLo style) and hit up Bistrot Lepic. They have a happy hour from 5:30pm-7pm with 50 percent off all French wines by the glass.
  • El Centro D.F.: Ever done some rooftop chillin’ for happy hour? Even if you have, you should still check out happy hour at El Centro D.F. from 5pm-7pm. You can sip on Mexican beers, $4 margs (on the rocks and frozen), Sangria and more. Just don’t fall off.
  • The Board Game: Happy Hour. Every. Day. Of. The. Week. $4 rail drinks Monday-Friday and 12pm-7pm Saturday and Sunday. On top of that, the restaurant is board games themed. #winning


  • Vidalia: Vidalia has a happy hour Monday-Friday from 5pm to 7pm featuring specialty cocktails made with “Southern Classic Sodas” like Cheerwine, Frostie Root Beer, RC Cola, Ale-8-One and Blenheim Hot and Spicy Ginger Ale.
