Best Happy Hour Spots in Orlando

From traveling around to different cities, I've realized that Orlando has some of the best deals for happy hour during the week to unwind after work. Other than people that work for the big amusement parks in Orlando a large portion of young professionals work downtown and the surrounding areas so there's lots of fun places to meet up after work for a quick drink and/or bite with friends. Here are a few of my personal favorite spots although there are TONS of other great happy hour deals in Orlando!

Restaurant titles are clickable if you want to visit the website to get more information or view the menu.

Carmel Cafe has happy hour 7 days a week from 4-7pm which includes $5 large glasses of wine, $5 small plates, $2 off liquor drinks and $1 off beer. We also love going on Thursday nights which is $5 martini night. Nothing gets me more excited than that!

Aku Aku Tiki Bar
Aku Aku has a different special everyday on their Hawaiian style drinks. Insider tip: The Tiger Fucker cocktail pictured below is a must-try but only have one because they are very strong and a very large size cocktail!


Daily specials: Taco Tuesday, Wine Wednesday, Tin Thursday (craft beers) and $1 off drafts on Tues-Fri from 4-7pm.

Daily drink specials and live music on the patio from 12-3pm. Vanbarry's has a really nice outside patio and allows dogs which is perfect for us for happy hour, lunch or brunch!

The Parkview

Graffiti Junktion
Graffiti Junktion has happy hour all week long M-F which includes $1 off draft beers; $3 house wine; $4 well drinks & margaritas.

Hammered Lamb

The Brass Tap
Happy hour is Monday to Friday from 4-7 pm and includes $4 pint beers, $4 house wines, and $6 small plates.

The Porch
The Porch has a nice, relaxed atmosphere with different food and drink specials during the week: Craft beer specials and 1/2 price burgers on Tuesdays. Kids eat free on Wednesdays. All you can eat wings on Thursdays.

So now I'm ready for some happy hour. Is it Friday yet?


  1. We don't have happy hours PERIOD up here...some dumb blue law that just hasn't gone away yet!! You can have it on food, but not alcohol!! Makes me so happy whenever I visit any city that actually has them lol! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. Saving for my next trip down there. I love a good happy hour.

  3. So many fun places to happy hour! My small Texas town doesn't really have places to do this..we just have a bunch of coffee shops & diners lol. We had some amazing places to go when we lived in San Diego!

  4. So many awesome happy hour places! Love the first one - happy hour everyday?! That's the best.

  5. girl i'm ready for happy hour too! ha. this is a great list! i love vanberrys with the music and awesome outside seating and of course i'm partial to stuff right by my apartment so i can walk! come on friday!

  6. Orlando has so many awesome places for happy hour! And now I can't wait for 5 pm tomorrow haha! Definitely checking out Aku Aku Tiki Bar sometime, I've never been there! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  7. These places all sound so great, especially the Carmel Cafe & Wine Bar - my kind of place!

  8. All of these places sound amazing!!! The Porch looks cute. And the Tiki Bar would make me feel like I was on vacation so what more can you ask for from a place?!?!

  9. I'm not a happy hour person - booze makes me lazy and I usually have too much I'd like to get done on weeknights. LOL

    I do love a deal though, so I love catching one on vacation.

  10. yes, they all sound good to me!! I love happy hour so much and have grown to crave it more than going out at night sometimes. Especially because it generally encourages nibbley food. Great list!

  11. Y'all really do have some of the brunch and happy hour places! It always seems like y'all are going to the best restaurants and having amazing food and drinks! I can't believe that one wine bar has Happy Hour every night!

  12. We seriously have an amazing happy hour and brunch scene here, and I forget that a lot of other cities aren't like that which makes me sad when visiting. Nothing like unwinding after a long week with some good deals or unlimited mimosas at brunch!

  15. this is so awesome! i definitely want to come to Orlando again and see way more than just Disney, so I guess i should hit all of these places! lol. The Tiger Fucker - what a hilarious name. it looks delicious!
