Who can say no to a good ol' Happy Hour? With so many restaurants and bars offering affordable Happy Hour deals, it is the perfect opportunity to get out during the summer to socialise with friends.

Summer approaching means super fresh seafood, cocktails, and patios - the three things combined create the best possible way (in our opinion) to spend a summer afternoon!

We're bringing you the best spots this summer to enjoy Happy Hour food and drink deals, in particular $1 and $2 buck-a-shuck oyster deals!
