The Best Happy Hour Deals in Long Beach
There's nothing like sneaking out of the office a little early to grab a great happy hour with friends and coworkers. Here are some of our favorite Long Beach spots to get a drink and some snacks to unwind after your daily grind.
The first thing you will notice is the zen-like welcoming garden entrance, and once you are inside the stunning views of the harbor will not disappoint. On Monday their happy hour goes from 3:00 PM all the way to close, Tuesday - Friday it's from 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM, and Sunday from 2:30 - 6:00 PM. They have deals on both drinks and food items. Chopin wheat Vodka, Tito's Vodka, Jameson, and Bacardi are some of the discounted drink items and the Kobe burger with duck fries or calamari are some of the stand-out food items.
If you're looking for a great seafood spot that also offers a killer happy hour, head over to Roe on Belmont Shore. Their happy hour is served daily from 3:00 - 6:00 PM and offers a nice selection of food and drink options. Snack on some fresh West Coast Oysters for just $2 each, try the citrusy and refreshing Ceviche Tostadas or indulge in their Duck Fried Rice. For beverages, you can order beer, wine, or mixed drinks at a discounted price, or really go for it and order their spicy Oyster Shooter featuring a West Coast Oyster, UV Sriracha vodka, and house bloody mix.
Located on the corner of Broadway and Termino in Belmont Heights, Panxa Cocina serves a variety of modern Latin cuisine. If you get off work a little later you're in luck with Panxa because their happy hour goes from 3:00 PM - bar close on Wednesdays. Every other day of the week happy hour is from 3:00 PM - 7:00 PM. On the cocktail menu, go for the classic margarita for only $5, or a whole pitcher of margaritas for $18. For small bits make sure to try the Creamy Poblano Fries, Ceviche (they are sister restaurants with Roe so you know their seafood is great), and Frito Pie.
Head to Downtown Long Beach on Monday, Wednesday - Friday from 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM, or Sunday from 3:00 - 7:00 PM for happy hour at Beer Belly. The restaurant has a unique urban vibe, with graffiti walls, intimate booths, and family size high-tops in the bar area. They have $5 beer, wine, and cocktails on draft, $8 Dealer's Choice Cocktails, and $6 Jameson Picklebacks. The Al Pastor Meatball Tacos are a must try, along with the Beer Belly chicken nuggets and Lots 'o Garlic Cheese Fries.
They do seafood the Cajun way at Big Catch Seafood. They also have some pretty fantastic drink specials on their happy hour menu. You can get $2 Bud Light or Sapporo, $3 Shock Top, and $4 house wines and specialty beers. Obviously, you can't leave without the seafood, so grab some oysters at $1.50 per shuck or the Cocktail Trio that includes 3 Jonah Crab Claws, 6 shrimp, and 3 Kumiai Oysters. Top off your meal with a few freshly fried items, like truffle fries, zucchini fries, and fried clams, and you've got yourself a wonderful happy hour meal.
If you are in the mood for a fun and authentic Irish bar after a long day in the office, head over to the Auld Dubliner on the Pike Downtown. They have reduced prices on food and beverages Monday - Friday from 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM. Also, if you're a fan of live music, you can enjoy a live show there on Thursday and Fridays at 5:00 for no cover charge. They certainly know the right way to pour a Guinness, and their Irish whiskey collection is very impressive as well.
If you haven't enjoyed some drinks or snacks with friends on the rooftop at Be Beau, it's a really nice atmosphere to hang out for happy hour. They have a full bar, seating that overlooks downtown, and family styly picnic tables as well. Their food and drink specials run every day from 5:00 - 7:00 PM. PBR Tall Boys are only $4 and served in a paper bag (as they should be), they have a rotating $10 Signature Cocktail of the Month that's fun to try, and any of the 7 appetizers under $7 are going to be a hit - especially the Famous Brussels Sprouts.
Many call it the best dive bar in Long Beach, but you can be the judge of that. Don't expect any frills or froo-froo drinks here on their happy hour menu. You get to take $1 off all drinks from 4:00 - 7:00 PM Monday - Friday. Mingle with the regulars and chat with the friendly bartenders, who are known for their strong pours. Drinks are already reasonably priced at any hour, so getting that extra dollar off is just a nice little bonus.
This is another $1 off everything Monday - Friday from 3:00 - 6:00 PM. While there aren't any food specials on their happy hour menu, their regular menu is quite extensive and the food is consistently really good. If you're looking for a spot that the locals love to become a regular at, check out the Pike for a happy hour and then come back for a night out. Plus, if you get hungry late, you are in luck. Their kitchen is open until midnight on Sunday - Thursday and 1:00 AM on Saturdays.
The happy hour at Belmont Brew Co is a little different each day and only offered in the bar area. Along with regular drink specials, "Monday Madness" includes 40% off select appetizers from 3:00 PM - 9:00 PM, Tuesday through Thursday you can enjoy 40% off select appetizers from 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM, and Saturday and Sunday drinks are discounted from 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM. Also, if you're part of the late shift, you can go over there for "Reverse Happy Hour" from 9:00 PM - close and enjoy $7.95 pizzas and discounted drinks as well.
