It’s the end of a long day.
Luckily, Downtown Spartanburg is full of restaurants and bars offering happy hour deals to deal with those work-day blues. Whether it’s a cocktail after slipping out of work early or grabbing a locally-brewed beer right after the clock strikes 5 p.m., happy hours can be the perfect way to unwind, or a good networking opportunity.
If you want to wet your whistle and relax, get out and find the best beverages (and best prices) in Downtown Spartanburg.
Spartanburg’s first brewery and the popular restaurant next door have carved out Thursday as their prime happy hour time with their weekly Thursday Hoppy Hour.
Anyone looking for a couple of drinks before dinner can take advantage of Cribbs’ happy hour, which lasts from 4-7 p.m. Tuesday-Friday.
Select wine is $5 per class. Well liquor drinks are $3 and all draft beers are $1 off normal price.
The Kennedy’s “All Day Happy Hour” lasts at the bar only from 4-9 p.m. Select specialty cocktails and snacks are $5 for anyone looking to enjoy the new-American vibe at the popular Spartanburg eatery.
Delaney’s offers happy hour drink prices from 4-7 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays (in case the start of the work week gets a little rough) with $1 off all draft beers and liquor drinks. Delaney’s happy hour brings food into the mix, too, with buy-one-get-one half-off entrees from 5-10 p.m. Mondays.
The NuWay, one of Spartanburg’s most popular vintage hangouts, is looking at tweaking their happy hour a bit, but for now, drink deals are offered almost every day starting at 7 p.m.
Mondays bring $1.50 Budweiser and Bud Light, while Tuesdays offer $2 well drinks. Wednesdays come with $2 tallboy PBRs and on Saturday, bourbon and vodka drinks are only $2.
Enjoy half-price bottles of wine at Bar 1884 in the middle of the revitalized Magnolia Street corridor of Downtown Spartanburg. Bar 1884 offers happy hour deals from 4-7 p.m. Sunday-Thursday, with Wednesday celebrated as Wines Day. Every Thursday from 3-7 p.m., cans of RJ Rockers are only $3, and your first beer is free with the purchase of a food item.
Happy hour also brings $3 domestic and locally-made craft beer.
The AC Lounge in the lobby emphasizes the AC signature Gin & Tonic, Spanish wines, crafted cocktails, and brews created across the street at RJ Rockers. A train whistle officially kicks off happy hour every evening at The AC Lounge, with the bartender offering samples of one of the hotel’s signature drinks.
If these happy hour offerings don’t quite wet your whistle, no worries, Spartanburg’s breweries will still have locally-crafted beers ice cold and ready to serve, and bars and restaurants across the county will have whatever drink you’re looking for. All you have to do is get out and explore.
