One of the most popular happy hours in Scottsdale happens at Citizen Public House, a classic pub with a contemporary twist. Don't call it happy hour, though - it's "social hour" at this stylish pub, and it happens every day from 3 pm to 6 pm. The social hour menu features barrel-aged cocktails, half-price beer and wine, and gourmet bites like turkey sliders and confit chicken wings. The ambiance is lively without feeling too crowded.
If your idea of the perfect happy hour includes a glass of red wine and a board of delicious and exotic cheeses, head on over to 5th and Wine, a happy hour institution. The regular happy hour goes from 3 pm to 6 pm Monday through Friday, along with an all-day happy hour on Sundays. Drink specials include $4 beer and well drinks, $8 specialty cocktails, and $5 glasses of wine. Enjoy your drink with food specials like the small caesar salad, the hummus plate, and warm brie.
For a happy hour in the heart of downtown, stop by RnR Restaurant and Bar, where the drinks are stiff and the people-watching is good. The kitchen delivers top-notch American comfort food, and the bar has a creative list of craft cocktails. With a wine cellar stocked with more than 1,800 bottles, this is also a great destination for oenophiles. A spacious two-story patio and more than 30 TVs make this an ideal spot for mingling, watching the game, or just enjoying a drink with friends.
