Home to countless restaurants and bars, Seattle is a haven for foodies and lovers of wine, beer, and drinks of all kind. Here are seven recommended spots for happy hour that will satisfy your appetite and spare your wallet.

Lost Lake Cafe & Lounge

Open 24-7, this retro diner is a Capitol Hill favorite for hearty American dishes, with reduced happy hour prices in the morning and evening. Savor discounted breakfast classics like eggs Benedict, huevos rancheros, and biscuits drenched in gravy, best paired with a mimosa, Bloody Mary, or a Caffe Vita drip coffee. Swing by later in the day for deals on beers, wine, and well drinks, plus the signature option: a burger and fries. Mon–Fri 7–8am and 3–6pm; 1505 Tenth Ave

All Water Seafood & Oyster Bar

Located in the Loews Hotel downtown, this maritime-themed bar serves classic drinks and locally caught seafood. Dive into halibut and chips, clams and mussels, or chowder fries—a Seattle take on poutine, with chowder poured over fries like gravy. Plus, every day, the oyster hour special includes oysters on the half shell plus drink specials. Daily 3–5pm; *1000 First Ave

Wasabi Sushi & Izakaya

Another Belltown favorite, Wasabi serves an extensive happy hour menu: Choose from a variety of its beloved sushi rolls, gyoza, poke, miso soup, and noodles. Pair these Japanese delicacies with a glass of sake for $5 or a fruity cocktail. Daily from 4pm-6pm, Late Night Sun-Thu 9pm-close, and Fri Sat 10pm-Close; 2311 Second Ave

Triumph Bar

Near the Seattle Center, this wine bar serves a fusion of Italian and American dishes, along with hundreds of international and domestic wines and specialty cocktails.

Percy’s and Co.

This rustic yet hip Ballard bar mixes apothecary-style drinks with Southern-inspired food among cozy booths, wood floors, and brick walls accented by hanging plants. Herbal cocktails go for only $5, like the Navigator with basil-infused rum or gin-based Honey Bee tinged with rosemary, while intriguing bites include Cajun-seasoned frites, popcorn with chili butter, and catfish tacos. Mon–Fri 4–7pm; 5233 Ballard Ave NW

Ben Paris

Located inside The State Hotel, just steps from Pike Place Market, Ben Paris is slashing prices on classic drinks and dishing up mouthwatering bar bites that’ll make you forget all about the 9-to-5 grind. Dive into OG hush puppies, the cult-favorite fried chicken sando, or mix it up with a killer shrimp cocktail, crispy cauliflower, and wagyu sliders. Mon–Fri 4–6pm; 130 Pike St, Seattle
