There are some weeks when your work schedule can be rough stuff. Maybe you’re in back-to-back meetings all day long, or you have an important presentation you’re working on after hours. The only thing that’s getting you through it all is the glorious knowledge that soon it’ll be wine o’clock. Luckily, here in Alexandria, we have a bundle of boozy deals. We (tried really hard) to narrow it down to the best deals during the longest amount of time. Here’s a list of Alexandria happy hours that have deals on both drinks and food, and will have you counting down the minutes until 5pm (or better yet, 3pm).
This coastal-inspired restaurant is situated right in the center of Old Town’s lively waterfront. At Blackwall Hitch happy hour is from 3pm to 7pm, Monday through Friday. Enjoy everything from $1 oysters, $4 beers, $5 wines and $7 cocktails. You can also get amazing small plates for $6. It’s located on the edge of the National Harbor, directly next to Founder’s Park and steps from waterfront activities including boat tours and water taxis. Enjoy the majestic views of the Capitol building and national monuments while you sip your half-priced cocktails.
Set on historic King Street, Don Taco brings a flavorful menu and casual, high-energy vibe to the Old Town restaurant scene. Head to Don Taco for a fresh spin on Mexican cuisine where happy hour is from 3pm to 8pm, Monday through Friday. During these happiest of hours, you’ll score great deals on everything from margaritas, wine and rail liquors. Don’t forget to pay attention to the daily deals (Monday: traditional margaritas, Wednesday: bottles of wine, Thursday: draft beers).
Happy hour is offered here every day from 3pm to 7pm. Sip on classic cocktails like Palomas and Moscow Mules containing thoughtfully cultivated liquor from small-batch distilleries, along with some lesser-known, liquor-forward gems, and wide-ranging beer and wine lists. The People’s Drug makes their own juices and syrups and takes great pride in making this lunch counter more grown-up than the soda-counter days of yore. Drink in a different decade at The People’s Drug, which reimagines the original Peoples Drug Store located in Alexandria in 1905. This place offers a modern take on an old general store that boasts its cocktail innovative-ness. True to its design, the People’s Signature Old Fashioned is a classic.
Enjoy authentic Irish fare at this classic King Street go-to. Irish (and all eyes) will be smiling at their happy hour from 3pm to 7pm, Monday through Friday. Enjoy $3 off all starters with beer, wine and select drinks specials. Sip on whiskey while being surrounded by antiques, paintings and pictures salvaged from monasteries and castles. That’s enough to have us saying “Slainte!”
