It’s cold as fuck in D.C. and nobody wants to be here right now. But, we have the solution: Happy Hour. More specifically, happy hours that will make you think that you’re in a warmer, less miserable place. Plus, with these drink specials in hand, it will definitely be pretty easy to convince yourself that when you step outside it wont be cold as balls out.
El Centro – Nothing warms you up better than some tequila, so why not throw back some $5 margaritas at one of DC’s best Mexican places. They also offer select cocktails, beer and wine for just $5 as well. Be sure to check out their amazing guacamole prepared tableside.
Bar Charley – Bar Charley is known for their tiki cocktails on draft. At just $7.95 a piece (and only $5 on Mondays all night), you can sip on their delicious concoctions and pretend you’re going to walk out and be greeted by warm sunshine and sounds of the ocean. Don’t miss out on on their happy hour mussels either.
Pearl Dive – The atmosphere alone in Pearl Dive will have you believing that you’re kicking it back, mid-summer, and just cooling off with some cocktails and oysters. With 2 for 1 oysters, you will definitely be able to get a bang for your buck. And with $5 wines, half price beers, and $7 martinis (dangerous), you will for sure get a nice booze blanket.
Del Campo – if you’re feeling a little fancier, check out Del Campo’s happy hour. With $6 margaritas, punches, and spiked lemonade – you can reminisce on when it wasn’t painfully cold out in style. They have happy hour from 5-7 and also late night happy hour 10-midnight Thursday-Saturday.
Kangaroo Boxing Club – Nothing says summer quite like a barbecue. And KBC does barbecue right. Kick back at their happy hour & a half from 5-6:30 and get a bucket of beer priced at 5 for 4.
Oyamel – Oyamel has hands down some of the best food and drink specials at their happy hour. Get their Margaritas and Sangria for just $5 or a pitcher for $30. Then enjoy a selection of their delicious tapas for just $4 a piece. Soon enough you’ll feel like you’re on spring break in Mexico.
