Connecticut: Oyster Club
> Located: Mystic
The bar at this first-rate restaurant in touristy Mystic is small, friendly, and non-touristy. Happy hour runs daily from 4 to 6 p.m., with $1 oysters among other specials. The adjacent outdoor space, the Treehouse, does happy hour from 3 to 6 p.m. whenever it’s open — Friday through Sunday only, and only in good weather — also with $1 oysters as well as $6 wine specials and $2 off all draft beers.
Delaware: Skipjack Dining

A casual restaurant specializing in seafood in “the other Newark,” Skipjack features $5 small plates dishes and $1 off draft beers, wines by the glass, and cocktails for its happy hour, daily from 5 to 7 p.m.
Florida: Beaker & Gray
> Located: Miami
With an eclectic menu and an imaginative cocktail program, Beaker & Gray fuels its happy hours — plural — with $5 beer, $6 wine, $7 cocktails, and $5 to $7 snacks (yucca fries, adzuki bean falafel, etc.). The deals are offered Monday through Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. and also, in reverse fashion, Sunday through Thursday from 11 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Georgia: The Ordinary Pub
> Located: Savannah
The “reimagined pub fare” at the Ordinary extends to such unusual happy hour(s) dishes as poached salmon and crab spread, pork belly sliders, and wontons with Asian salsa ($8 to $9). To drink, there are $5 house wines and draft beer and cocktails priced $5 to $9. Instead of calling their discount periods “happy hours,” however, the pub divides them into apéritif hour, from 3 to 7 p.m., and digéstif hour, from 10 p.m. until closing — Monday through Saturday in both cases.
Hawaii: The Surfing Pig Hawaii
> Located: Honolulu
One of the shorter happy hours around the country, the Surfing Pig’s runs from 4 to 5.30 p.m., Monday through Friday. House wines, draft beers, signature cocktails, and assorted bar snacks (street tacos, smoky cheesy mac, etc.) are all $1 to $2 off the usual prices.
