Havana is a Commercial Drive staple – $8 happy hour margs & mojitos, $6 house wine, and all the fried plantain chips you can eat – it’s no wonder that this spot has become a local fave. Offering guests inventive cocktails, local beers, and a mix of Spanish and Cuban cuisine, Havana definitely fits the “staycation” bill.

CRAFT English Bay 

With cozy booth seating and large picnic tables perfect for groups, it’s no wonder that CRAFT at English Bay draws people in no matter the occasion. After all, $5 beers, discounted comfort food, and waterfront views are pretty hard to beat.

The folks behind the Narrow (which incidentally also has a small patio out back…) are also widely known for Uncle Abe’s – a funky bar with a ton of character. In addition to great happy hour deals (including picklebacks for $4.50 and cocktails for $8), they also have weekly ‘yappy hours’ dedicated to our four-legged friends!

Tacofino Taco Bar

Great news, Tacofino enthusiasts. The Taco Bar in Gastown not only has a great patio to lounge in, but some amazing deals to go with it. Our suggestion? Treat yourself to a Pineapple Ginger Mezcal Margarita and a plate of ceviche on an especially hot day, or grab some brews by night under their fairy lights.

If happy hour negronis are your thing, then head on down to Six Acres in the heart of Gastown. While this is a slightly pricier option compared to the others we’ve mentioned, the experience of ‘English Tea Time’ is certainly an added bonus. Menu highlights include $8 mini doughnuts, $7 beers, and $14 mussels served with a baguette.

Now, for one of our fave local spots. Cafe Lokal is a popular destination for espresso drinks and leisurely reading on the patio, but what you might not know is that they also have a daily happy hour menu. On it, you’ll find $6 glasses of house wine, $5 beers, and an assortment of tasty charcuterie eats. Enjoy some post-work libations at a European-inspired cafe – because why not!

While live events are currently still postponed ‚Äď we‚Äôre hoping to see the return of their live music Saturdays soon.

Mahony’s Tavern – False Creek

Similar vibes to Tap & Barrel, Mahony’s in False Creek offers unparalleled views of the water, downtown skyline, and seawall. In terms of scenery, it really doesn’t get any better than this! For drinks, there are $6-8 beers, refreshing bellinis for $7.50, and $5 highballs. For food, folks can chow down on two street tacos or burger sliders for $8.

We saved the most expensive for last – but LIFT is a must-visit for special occasions or if you feel like splurging a little for some of the best waterfront views in the city. Enjoy $6 wines selected by sommeliers, $6 lagers, and discounted oysters, halibut & chips, and other seafood bites.
