Our Seattle Happy Hour guide is your ticket to after-work fun around the Seattle area and Eastside.   Written by Seattle locals – it gives you the “down and dirty” on the specials you can hook up with.  Consider using a Seattle limousine service or affordable Seattle taxi to make your night-out safe, comfortable, and fun…

Downtown Seattle is the place to hang out with the office workers blowing their paycheck in swanky restaurants.  From the Metropolitan Grill’s incredible happy hour specials to McCormick and Schmick’s seafood discounts – you can booze it up and pay a lot less.  You get top restaurants – many of which offer both an early – and a late night happy hour.  Don’t forget the late night Seattle happy hours after a movie or a show – come hungry.

Our downtown Seattle happy hour listings have been lovingly updated in March 2013. The hours and prices are based on the restaurant’s own response to a direct survey.      If you do find a significant errorplease email to qualify for a free drink coupon.

Our happy hour of the month is Sazarac at Hotel Monaco (see details and photos below) for ridiculously low prices on happy hour food including a very wide menu for around $5, plus an long happy hour cycle from 4pm to 8pm Monday-Saturday. Last Friday, the place was packed with energy and heavy drinking happy hour patrons. Come early – there is often a wait due to the popularity of this very cheap and busy happy hour.

The Happy Hour party is over however, at the Seattle Typhoon which has closed in Seattle. Unless you BYOB – no more happy hours there. Other suburban Typhoons remain open.
