Freedman’s happy hour is 4 to 7pm Tuesday through Thursday. You can fill up on $5 barbecue sandwiches and wash them down with $3 whiskeys of the month and $2 Pabst Blue Ribbon cans and Lone Star Drafts. Their reverse happy hour from 10pm to 12am Wednesday through Friday adds $6 glasses of select wines to the mix.



Contigo’s sprawling open air location is enough to put it on the list of the best happy hours in Austin. But they up the ante with $2 off cocktails, $1 off draft beer and wine by the glass, and $1 off bar snacks. Stop by Monday through Thursday from 5 to 7pm to take advantage. Bonus points: Wednesdays there’s $5 Ceviche and Thursdays, snack on $1 fried chicken.



Parkside’s happy hour, right in the heart of 6th Street, might be the very best happy hour in Austin.

Grab a friend and enjoy an oyster platter or grilled bar steak for just a few bones!


Licha’s Cantina

Head over to the east end of 6th Street for another fantastic happy hour. Licha’s $5 happy hour is Tuesday through Friday 4 to 6pm. Choose from cocktails including Margaritas, Palomas and their own concoctions like the Bonita. Fill your tummy with delicious plates of interior Mexican cuisine like quesadillas, sopecitos, and more, all for just $5!



This high-end sushi restaurant is one of Austin’s finest, but you can enjoy the dishes for less at their Sake Social. Daily from 5pm to 6:30pm take advantage of reduced prices on handrolls, sushi, hot dishes, sake and sake cocktails. Arguably the most delicious of the best happy hours in Austin.
