Whether it is after a hard days work or you're wanting to go out with the squad for drinks, it can often be tricky in terms of deciding on which spot you want to hit up. This is where the term "happy hour' comes into play, let's define the term shall we!
Happy hour: a period of the day when drinks are sold at a reduced price at a restaurant or bar.
Happy hour in Edmonton usually starts early in the afternoon and can last for three hours, or go into the wee hours of the night. It's not like we are complaining or anything because let's be real every hour in a day should be happy hour. You never know, things might start to change since we are in the new year.
For now, we are going to help you pick a happy hour spot so that the next time you get hit with a heavy workload, you'll know where to go afterward. Have a look at 19 spots in Edmonton that host the best happy hour drink specials.
