Best Happy Hour in South Scottsdale

Editor April 15, 2023 Drinks, Scottsdale

No better way to end a long work day during the week than with a few drinks with a date, friends, or your co-workers. If you are in the Old Town Scottsdale area, here are the best happy hour deals for you to enjoy some bar food, beer, or a house signature cocktail:

Bitters Cocktail Bar & Food

1455 N Scottsdale Rd Suite 115

Check out their happy hour seven days a week from 4:00 – 8:00 PM, where you can get $2 off beer, $3 off wine, $4 off classic cocktails, and $3 off their signature cocktails. Their signature craft cocktails cover a lot of unique flavors.

A special shout out to “Angel’s Peach” with bourbon, creme de peche, lemon juice, agave, and Coca-Cola or the “Cali Coachella” with whiskey, chipotle flavoring, honey, and tastes of orange. They also have some food options like 4 different versions of sliders, as well as some wings and highly reviewed guacamole on their happy hour list.

Postino Highland

4821 N Scottsdale Rd #109

While the Arcadia location will always be my favorite, Postino Highland is a great location right across from Fashion Square. Here you can get $6 glasses of wine and pitchers of beer until 5:00 PM every day, even on the weekends.

But the most exciting happy hour they have here is their $25 bottle of wine & bruschetta board every Monday and Tuesday nights after 8:00 PM. The bruschetta boards are a decent amount of food with 4 hearty slices of bruschetta on homemade bread and toppings of your choice.

You can pair your board with the “Hannah’s Field” salad which is a bed of kale topped with grains, apple, apricot, toasted almond, pickled red onion, and an apple cider-mustard vinaigrette.

Goodwood Tavern

7330 E Stetson Dr.

Located in the middle of Old Town Scottsdale, Goodwood Tavern is a more relaxed option when compared to the other clubs and bars in the area. Enjoy their happy hour Monday through Friday, from 3:00 – 7:00 PM.

You can get a domestic beer, well cocktail, a house wine, or even a “Pineapple Minderaser” for only $5. If that one doesn’t raise some questions, then I don’t know what will. You can also snack on some chicken dumplings, fried pickles, or even bacon and bleu cheese guacamole – which also sounds like something to remember. Perfect spot for the pregame before a night out in Old Town.

Citizen Public House

7111 E 5th Ave

If you’re wanting to go a little more bougie for your happy hour festivities, check out Citizen Public House during the Social Hour where you can try one of their bar snacks, including “bacon fat popcorn,” “rosemary-roasted” mixed nuts, or an assortment of olives.

They also have fancy offerings like filet-mignon sliders, or beer fondue with pretzel bread, Asian pears, and sausage. Additionally, they have draft cocktails for $10 each or their featured wines for $8 a glass. You can even let the bartender choose for you and be surprised with a “Dealer’s Choice” drink for $10 a piece.

The Drunk Munk

7133 E Stetson Dr., Suite 1

Looking for a local Tiki Bar to try out in Scottsdale? Happy Hour is 3:00 – 7:00 PM, seven days a week and all night long every Sunday. Try a $7 blended margarita, Pina Coladas, or a $4 draft beer.

For appetizers, try their potstickers, coconut shrimp, spicy teriyaki ribs, or “Bottle Rockets”, which are shrimp, cream cheese, scallion, and siracha with a sweet chili orange sauce. You can also check out their brunch special from 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM with $15 bottomless penny mimosas.

Diego Pops

4338 N Scottsdale Rd

On Mondays, they have a Taco Monday Special, where you can get any taco for $3 all day. They also have a happy hour every day from 3:00 – 6:00 PM. Here you can get $4 beers, $6 Diego Margaritas, $6 glasses of wine and/or sangria, and half-off all appetizers.

My favorite appetizers are the taquitos or the grilled street corn. And even though it is not on happy hour, I highly recommend the Aguachile. It is the perfect amount of spice, citrus, and freshness for a meal out on the patio in the Spring.

Find the happy hour spot best for you, whether you are going for an upscale dining experience, delicious snacks that can replace a dinner meal, or just really well-priced drinks – there is something for all in Scottsdale, Arizona!
