Happy hour promotions that will make every weekday #TGIF
If there is one time of the week that I could constantly put on repeat, my answer would certainly be Friday night. My Friday nights are typically spent chillaxing with close friends, ranting about any accumulated frustrations over a bucket of happy hour beers on the table. But sometimes, the week might feel a little too long to wait till Friday to let the steam go, so here are some bars and restaurants that offer happy hour promotions every weekday for you to jio your drinking kakis to!

Making waves on Instagram for its picturesque rooftop setting, Loof adopts a time system for its happy hour promotions. House pours such as beers, wines and spirits are priced at $5++ from 5pm, and the price increases by a dollar for each one-hour interval till 8pm. Pair your drinks with their bar grub, with our favourite being the B.C.M Grilled Cheese ($18++) that has a saucey combination of minced pork and mushrooms sandwiched between gooey cheese and toasted sourdough. For something to munch on, try their California Crackers ($14++), which comprises crispy fried wanton skin lying beneath a creamy concoction of crabstick, avocado, ebiko and their special mayo.
2. Park Bench Deli

Famous for their hearty sandwiches, Park Bench Deli amps up their indulgent meter with an all-day happy hour promotion. Savour their bestselling sandwiches, such as the Grilled Cheese ($14) and Cheesesteak ($16), along with a lager at an additional $8! Pro-tip: if you’re indecisive and cannot decide between two sandwiches, get your friend to order the other flavour and split it in half to get the best of both worlds!

If you’re looking for a romantic restaurant to impress bae, head down to Morton’s. Enjoy selected martinis such as Lycheetini and Chocolate Mortini at $15.95++ during their Mortini Nights, which happens daily from 5pm to 7pm. Munch on their bar bites while you’re at it, and be sure to stop the waitstaff when they come by with their tender Filet Mignon steak sandwiches, which are free for you to grab!
4. Tanuki Raw

For a chill, post-work catch up with friends that won’t break the bank, swing by Tanuki Raw between 5pm and 8pm. The happy hours at Kapok and Orchard Central allow you to enjoy $10++ cocktails and martinis, a pint of beer at $12++, and freshly shucked oysters at $2++ a pop, with a cap of six oysters per drink. Be sure to make a reservation at their Orchard Central outlet if sashimi is your jam, as their happy hour includes salmon sashimi that’s priced at $7++ for five slices, with a limit of one order per drink.

Leaving OverEasy without having a go at their Spicy Wing Roulette ($10++ for four pieces) is akin to leaving a theme park without riding a rollercoaster. Grab yourself a drink or two to prep yourself for this game of guts during their happy hour, where you get one-for-one on all draft beers, house-pour wines and spirits from 5pm to 8pm, every weekday.

6. Oven & Fried Chicken

Given their variety of Korean chicken dishes and daily happy hour promotions, it is no surprise Oven & Fried Chicken is my clique’s favourite supper spot. The Sauced Jambalaya Boneless Chicken ($22++/$37++) is our go-to order, and it features chunks of boneless fried chicken thigh coated in a sweet and spicy glaze. It’s fried twice to retain the chicken’s crispy exterior. Enjoy their fried chicken in true Korean fashion with a pint of Hoegaarden or San Miguel beer, priced affordably at $10++ and $12++ respectively during happy hour.

Famous for its #coolkids vibes and contemporary Japanese dishes, Kinki Restaurant + Bar is the place to go for an unforgettable night out. If you’re heading down with your other half, indulge in the crowd-favourite Foie Gras Unagi Maki ($32++ for two pieces). Plus, enjoy one-for-one on selected beers, wines and spirits during their happy hour. For a group-friendly dish, Assorted Tempura ($22++) does the trick, with a variety of deep-fried vegetables and seafood for everyone to share.
8. Trattoria Italian Kitchen

Don’t be fooled by Trattoria Italian Kitchen’s unassuming appearance. This casual dining restaurant hides a wood-fired oven in their kitchen and dishes out hearty Italian classics at reasonable prices. Dive straight into Parma Pizza ($27.90++) – a thin-crust pizza topped with tangy tomato sauce, salty parma ham, rocket leaves and shaved mozzarella. With a one-for-one promotion on all beers and wines, from 12pm to 7pm daily, be sure to head down when you’re part of an even-numbered group to make the best of your drinking session.
9. The Black Swan

Nothing screams #treatyourself more than having a meal and winding down at The Black Swan. Famed for their impeccable service and Tuesday jazz nights, the swanky restaurant boasts an elegant interior, with high ceilings and a grand, marble and brass-top bar. Enjoy house pour spirits, wines and draught beers at $9++ during their weekday happy hour period, and $2++ oysters, which are limited to six per drink. Indulge yourself further and go for The Black Swan Burger ($32++), which comprises a chuck patty, mature cheddar, sunny-side up, streaky bacon and fries.
10. Barrio by Mex Out

Barrio by Mex Out is my favourite restaurant for Mexican grub, thanks to its prime location in Orchard and extensive happy hour deals. Enjoy sangrias, margaritas or mojitos at $10++ during their daily happy hour period, or Heineken pints ($9++, U.P. $14++) if you’re craving for a beer. A Bucket Of 5 Beers (U.P. $55++) are also slashed to a happy hour price of $35++, so head down to this restaurant the next time you and your pals are looking for cheap beer and finger food!
