You’ve just spent eight hours working inside, the last thing you want to do is sit inside a stuffy bar or restaurant to get your happy hour on. Thankfully you don’t have to with our list of the best PATIO happy hours in the city! The sun won’t be the only thing you’ll be soaking up.
7 Urban Thai Bistro
1119 Hamilton St
Escape the 9-5 hustle of Yaletown and transport yourself to somewhere far away. Enjoy the exotic flavours of Urban Thai Bistro’s delicious Thai-inspired happy hour menu. Dishes like veggie spring rolls, chicken satay and spicy Thai prawn salad are all under $10. The food pairs perfectly with their $4 and $5 drink specials and chic patio space.
1177 Marinaside Crescent
Enjoy some South of France vibes on Provence Marinaside’s gorgeous patio. Their “Tappy Hour” menu, which runs from 3-5pm daily, offers a selection of European inspired appetizers for under $10. The menu compliments their $5 glasses of beer, wine and bubbles.
5 The Keg
1011 Mainland St
If you haven’t checked out the rooftop patio at the Yaletown Keg yet, you’re missing out. Their cocktail hour menu can’t be beat either. A selection of $5 cocktails (including the Famous Keg Caesar), beer, and $6 glasses of wine. Pair with shareable appetizers such as nachos and calamari and you’ve got a perfect after work atmosphere.
4 LIFT Bar & Grill
You really can’t get any better than the patio at LIFT, it was voted one of the best in Vancouver after all. Their happy hour menu offers a selection of appies as well as a $16 plate of fish and chips and cheap glasses of beer and wine.
3 The Boathouse
1795 Beach Ave
Visit just about any Boathouse location for a chill patio scene and a great happy hour line up. There’s $5 beer and hi-balls, $6 wine and $7 cocktails. For food you can pick from a variety of appetizers ranging from $4.99 to $7.99! And who could forget the $1.69 fresh shucked oysters?! Available from 3-6pm daily.
2 Tap & Barrel
1 Athletes Way
Tap & Barrel’s Happy Hour is cheap in the best way possible. Nothing on their food or drink menu for Happy Hour is over $6 and on Monday’s happy hour runs ALL DAY! We suggest an extended lunch on their patio to beat the Monday blues.
1 Cactus Club Café
357 Davie St
One word: frosé. We know you’re already familiar with a Cactus Club patio and probably with their happy hour too, but this summer they are bringing the perfect patio drink to that menu. Frozen rosé wine is available along with other happy hour cocktails for only $6
