Jug and Table at Roofers Union likes to keep things in the name family. Whole jugs go for $25 during happy hour. Open from 5 p.m. until close. Some wines on the list include Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay from Napa; Malbec from Mendoza; and Grenache from Rose Provence. Sometimes you have to choose if you want to pretend like you know what you’re ordering and sometimes you just have to ask for a recommendation.

The Alex at Georgetown’s Graham Hotel is offering half off all bottles of wine from 5 p.m. – close. Their selection includes just the right balance between wines you’ve tried and loved and wines you’ve never heard of.


Sunday through Thursday from 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. Ripple offers half price wines by the glass (and also half price draft beers but we’re here to talk about wine). The drink menu features an I Magredi ‘Tocco’ Prosecco; Punta Crena “Vigneto Isasco”; Ghostwriter Chardonnay; and MANY more options that you’ll have to see to believe. wine white wine water cooler pinot grigio kathie lee gifford


The happy hour at Flight is all night Mondays and 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. on Tuesday – Saturday. So yes, you can go tonight. Because Flight is a full fledged wine bar its selection is really, really extensive. You can choose to try a Muscat from Málaga, Spain or Samos, Greece. Maybe a Sauvignon Blanc from France, Slovenia, or New Zealand sounds good too. There’s SO MUCH to choose from. Flight’s happy hour/dinner menu includes Italian Meatballs; Whipped Tahini and Rosemary Crackers; and Squash Fritters to accompany your wine.


Vinoteca’s happy hour is everyday from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. where they offer 15 options of wine for $5 a glass along with reduced priced small dishes. Vinoteca’s wine list is (not surprisingly) huge. Some of their wines include a Della Scala from Veneto; Fratelli Povero from Piedmont; Jean Luc Mader from Alsace; and so much more (!!!!). The ‘snacks’ portion of their menu has things like Rosemary Scones and Pennsylvania Butter; Potato Chips and Garlic Créme Fraîche; and Olives and Toasted Almonds.

Sunday through Thursday from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. at ENO means wine on tap for $5. ENO also does this thing where they help you pair your favorite kind of happy hour snack with a wine to compliment it and vice versa.


At Proof happy hour runs Monday-Friday from 5:30 p.m. – 7 p.m. This means $5 glasses of house red and white wine and $8 classic cocktails but who cares about the cocktails? Proof’s wine list has over 40 types of wine from all over the world and from this beautiful country of ours.
