Happy hour is the happiest hour of the day, and not just for the flock of white collar workers who leave Boston offices as soon as the clock strikes five, but also for tourists, students, the blue collar crowd, and those just looking to save a little money on good food.
Drink specials aren't exactly allowed for happy hour in Boston, but bars have found ways around the rule by offering things like half priced appetizers, and beer that seems to always be on special. For Boston restaurants, this law is a plus, as they tend to have a busier bar scene than table scene early on weeknights with people waiting to score a spot where they can indulge in happy hour specials.
Take high end steakhouse, Morton's as an example and indulge in their inexpensive "Bar Bites" with a great glass of wine. Or enjoy Estragon's "Tapa's Blitz" where for a few weeknight hours you'll be able to order a decent selection of their delectable food for a fraction of the price of dining at a table- but you must forgo the reservation as bar spots at Estragon are first come first serve.
