National Happy Hour Day is Thursday, November 12! Since a crowded bar might not be the most ideal place to celebrate, we thought we’d share a few of our favorite places to get beer, wine and cocktails to go instead. Whether you’re in Fishtown, University City or Rittenhouse Square, we’ve listed a few destinations that don’t disappoint…
If you’re looking to sample a new beer on tap or wine by the glass, Misconduct Tavern has you covered. Other than putting modern spins on classic comfort foods, this nautical-themed sports bar is also known for its well-stocked and extensive selection of drafts, IPAs, imports, wines and more to choose from – and they can all be found on the to-go menu. Misconduct’s Logan Square location is open at 11 a.m., and its Rittenhouse location is open at 11:30 am Wednesday through Sunday and at 4 pm on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Searching for a unique cocktail experience? Check out Vietnam Restaurant in Chinatown and its partner location, Vietnam Café in University City. Both eateries offer beer and wine, but the highlight of Vietnam’s drink menu is by far its list of Polynesian cocktails, which come conveniently bottled if you’re ordering takeout. With names like the Scorpion, Bachelor’s Downfall or Flaming Volcano, these tropical creations will be sure to deliver on the flavor front. Vietnam Restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. at 221 N 11th St, and Vietnam Café is open from 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. at 816 S 47th St.
Mission Taqueria’s bottled margaritas in creative flavors like guava and mango pineapple are the highlight of its to-go drink menu, but the popular Center City spot also offers items like hibiscus sangria and Tecate, a Mexican beer, among a variety of nonalcoholic options. You can even order chili lime rimming salt to recreate the authentic margarita experience at home. Mission Taqueria is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. at 1516 Sansom St, right above the Oyster House.
Whether you’re thinking about trying a seasonal IPA or specialty cocktail, Garage definitely has something for everyone. This auto-themed bar’s impressive lineup of drinks spans two locations – be sure to check out both the Passyunk and Fishtown menus for exclusive items. Order up a variety of classic cocktails or try one of the bar’s popular Fun Bags – original creations served in drink pouches for your convenience. Garage Fishtown is located at 100 E Girard Ave, and Garage Passyunk is located at 1231 E Passyunk Ave. Both bars are open from 4 to 11 p.m.
