Happy hour is a wonderful reward for a hard day’s work. It is a chance to leave the office early, meet friends and try out new spots without committing to a full meal – or full price. From East Side to Uptown, there are all sorts of great places for happy hour in Chicago. Whether you’re looking for a cheap beer, discounted cocktail, or want to try some of the Windy City’s newest, hottest restaurants, there’s something for you. Here are our current favorite happy hour spots.

Easy Bar
We believe that Easy Bar has the best drinking happy hour in Chicago, hands down. Every day of the week you get half off of everything on the menu from 5-7pm. In addition, the friendly bar offers daily specials like $2 High Life bottles on Sundays and $4 select craft cans on Wednesdays. Don’t leave without requesting a song or two from their old-school jukebox!
Brando’s Speakeasy
If cabaret-style karaoke and period-inspired cocktails are your jam, then Brando’s Speakeasy is should be on your happy hour bucket list. Choose from Brando’s daily specials between 5-7pm, including $5 bourbon old fashions, $5 Bombay Sapphire gin and tonics, and $3 small pizzas. The dimly lit lounge is the perfect place to gather some courage and grab the mic to sing a song or two.
The Globe Pub
For the sportiest happy hour in Chicago, head to The Globe Pub, Chicago’s premier soccer bar. Stop by for half-price appetizers, wines, and $2 off all drafts Tuesday thru Friday, from 4-7pm. Just like any good sports bar, you’ll find a variety of regionals, national and international beers here from German pilsners to Chicago pale ales. Celebrate your favorite team’s triumphs or simply toast the end of the workday with the pub’s notorious $1 Jello shots.

Cold Storage
Yes, you can enjoy amazing oysters without spending a fortune! Cold Storage is a seafood restaurant and bar that offers $1 oysters and daily drink specials every weekday from 3-6pm. If you stay long enough, you just might decide to stick around for dinner to enjoy the daily catch or a prime steak.
The Walk In
Treat yourself to a classy craft cocktail that won’t break the bank at The Walk In. The cocktail lounge is connected to Red Star Liquor store in Logan Square by way of a walk-in cooler door. Every weekday between 5-8pm you’ll find expertly crafted $6 cocktails like old fashioneds, gimlets, and more, plus $4 select drafts. The outdoor seating area is dog-friendly so you can imbibe with your furry best friend.
El Nuevo Mexicano
Shake up your weekday routine with a happy hour in Chicago at El Nuevo Mexicano. Visit Monday thru Thursday between 4-6pm for $3 imports, #5 house margaritas and sangrias, and a range of delicious food options at affordable prices, including $5 empanadas and tamales. Sit on the covered outdoor patio, grab a stool at the bar or reserve a table inside if you plan on staying a while.
