At the end of a long work day, there’s truly nothing better than getting a hard-earned beverage to cool off. This might be even better if you brought along some of your favorite teammates after work — and if you knew which places offered the best happy hour in downtown Phoenix. Luckily, you can check out several places like that and bring your co-workers along for the fun!
The Vig – Fillmore
606 N 4th Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85003
The Vig features their Happy Hour menu offerings every weekday from 3 to 6 p.m., including 3-for-9-dollars bar snacks, a smattering of other appetizers, and $9 signature mixed drinks — drinks they call “Vignature Cocktails.” Whether you’re here for the goat cheese curds, spicy corn nuts, or the Vig’s “Daily Mule” beverage, you will be able to have plenty of fun at the end of your day.
132 S Central Ave 4th Floor, Phoenix, AZ 85004
For an hour every day of the week, those hanging out at Little Rituals have a little ritual of their own — Aperitivo Hour. At 5 p.m., you can start enjoying all the small bites you can handle for half off of their original price. In addition, many classic and signature cocktails like the Magic Stick or the Vodka Espresso martini are made available for a 20% discount! If you buy yourself a bottle of wine during Aperitivo Hour, you will get a chef’s board to snack on as well. If you’re looking to establish a daily or weekly ritual with your team, this is the place to do it.
105 W Portland St, Phoenix, AZ 85003
Every day between 4:30 and 6 p.m., a signature martini offered by FEZ is available for only $7, and for $6 you can also enjoy different house-choice wines, mimosas, and select draft beers. You can also secure a Fez-chilada, an order of fries, or a tasty taco for $6 as well — made with all the love and attention that a Happy Hour can muster! Ask your server at FEZ about the signature martini of the day, or get yourself a cranberry, orange, or grapefruit juice mimosa to start the evening off. Don’t forget to also fill your belly with a plate of fries, including your choice of seasoning: salt & pepper, spicy harissa, garlic & rosemary, or cinnamon sugar!
Angel’s Trumpet Ale House
810 N 2nd St, Phoenix, AZ 85004
If you’re hungry after a shift, Angel’s Trumpet Ale House is the best place for you to wind down. With a happy hour menu that features snacks of every size, you can get yourself a basket meal (such as the crispy fried pork riblets) or a small app like the onion rings and the pretzels. All of these much-loved savory bites go down really well with a beer of your choice — which on Tuesday to Friday are $1 off from open until 6 in the evening!
