Denver’s Best Weekend Happy Hours, Vol. 1

Denver often takes the “hour” part of Happy Hour way too literally, and when we worker bees can’t scramble to a 5-6pm happy hour, we can (and we will) make it to these weekend happy hours, because the good people of the following restaurants, made time on Saturday and Sunday for us to discount drink. And for that, we salute them.

Lola Coastal Mexican

Ya gotta order “The Deal” during Happy Hour, two chicken tacos & a Howdy pilsener, for $5.

Lola Coastal Mexican – The Blanco Coin margarita with El Charro Silver is a thing of beauty., smooth, delicious and not overly sweet. Choose this margarita, or from three other specialty drinks for $5, as well as many other drink and beer specials, starting at $2 (that’s right!) What’s a drink special if it’s not accompanied by incredible food and Lola’s doesn’t skimp on Happy Hour food choices. Our favorite: Achiote Chicken  tacos (slaw, serrano aioli, cotija), so fantastically flavorful and juicy, for $2. Catch the rest of the Happy Hour menu, also available ALL NIGHT Monday, as well as  Tuesday – Friday from 4pm-6pm, here.

WEEKEND HAPPY HOUR: Saturday & Sunday, 2:30pm-5pm

BONUS POINTS: Baskets of free tortilla chips that descend from Heaven (or just above the bar, where they’re tucked away).

Lola Coastal Mexican is located at 1575 Boulder St, Denver, CO. Find their hours, here.

Work & Class

Tamarind Pork Ribs, $10, will rock your weekend world.

Work & Class – This Happy Hour was meant to be shared among friends, as you’ll want to order EVERYTHING off the menu here. Beer, wine & barrel-aged cocktails, $4-$9 perfectly round-out the food specials.

HIGHLIGHTS: Tempura Broccoli with chipotle aioli, $6; Bacon-wrapped Asparagus & Grits, served on poblano grits with a mustard jalapeño aioli, $8 and Tamarind Pork Ribs (pictured), $10.

WEEKEND HAPPY HOUR:: Saturday & Sunday, 4pm-5pm

Hey Guys, Globe Hall has BOGO drinks on Saturday from 12-6pm and .50 cent wings (while they last). Don’t mind us, we’re just going to use our savings on some of Denver’s best BBQ. Our Texas friends call the brisket, “superb” and “fall off the bone with incredible flavor” so got get yer self some!

WEEKEND HAPPY HOUR: Saturday 12pm-6pm

Globe Hall is located at 4483 Logan St, Denver, CO. Find their hours and confer schedule, here.


Central Bistro has one of our favorite bars, splashed with sunlight, open-air and offering some really fantastic Happy Hour cocktails for under $5 (try the Suffering Bastard, trust). One thing that makes Central Bistro such a standout, is not just the varied and delicious food items they serve during happy hour – Kimchi Pork Belly Sliders, Confit Chicken Wings, Baja Shrimp Tacos are just a few – but, if you find the bar full, you can order happy hour anywhere in the restaurant.

WEEKEND HAPPY HOUR: Sunday, all night.
