Vancouver Cheap Eats: Happy Hour

Dec 19 2017, 11:31 pm

After a long day at the office, Happy Hour is the perfect pick-me-up. With restaurants all over the city offering Happy Hour specials, there is definitely a deal out there for every taste bud. So rally up your friends and colleagues to indulge in delicious eats (and drinks!) for $10 or less at some of Vancouver’s best restaurants!

Hapa Izakaya

Hapa Izakaya kicks off our list this week with their signature ‘Hapa Hour’ at all four Vancouver locations. Each offers a different Hapa Hour menu, with our favourite being the Coal Harbour location – only because it lasts the longest (3:00-5:30 p.m. Monday to Friday). Pair any of the unique Japanese tapas on their menu with a $4 draft beer or $5 wine and you have the perfect post-work snack for less than $10.

Address: 909 West Cordova Street, Coal Harbour (Click for full list of locations)

Colony hosts different events almost every night of the week, including Tapped Out Tuesdays featuring $3 beers and Trivia Wednesdays. However, you can count on Happy Hour Monday to Friday from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. Cheap items include $3 draft beer and highballs, $4 wine, and $6.95 wings.
