Best Happy Hour Pensacola

Livin’ on the Gulf Coast means happiness is pretty easy to come by, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love a good happy hour as much as the next town. If you want to know where the locals go to grin for an hour or two, add these to your list.

Fish House
600 S Barracks St
(850) 470-0003

“Every table. Every bar. Every day.” That’s how the Fish House is doing happy hour from 4 to 6 p.m. Draft beers are $2, well drinks are $3 and house wines are $4. Easy enough, right? For all the ladies out there, Fish House has dedicated hump day to you, offering $2 drinks all day long.

22 N Palafox St
(850) 476-7776

Oh, you fancy, huh? Iron is the place to be for craft cocktails, and from 4:30 to 6 p.m., the fancy drinks are cheaper. Ask them to make you an ‘IRON Goddess’ because you’re a goddess. (Don’t worry, fellas.)

Casino Beach Bar & Grille
41 Fort Pickens Rd
(850) 932-6313

There’s way more than just good food and sweet views at Casino. Happy hour is half off all ‘crown and down,’ and half off house wines. As long as you’re there between 3 and 6 p.m., you’re set. That cool breeze off the Gulf of Mexico is complimentary. CBB also has daily drink specials, such as ‘Goose Tuesday’ and ‘Sunday Funday.’ Peep their entire drink special list on their website.

Flounder’s Chowder House
800 Quietwater Beach Rd
(850) 932-2003

You might be eyeing Flounder’s for one of those Diesel Fuels, and we highly recommend you do that. But if you’re just looking for a big return on your drink funds, hit up Flounder’s from 4 to 6 p.m for buy one, get one happy hour. (We like it when it’s easy like that.) Thursday nights are $3 Diesel Fuels, which is just downright terrifying.

O’Riley’s Irish Pub
321 S Palafox St
(850) 912-4001

It’s an Irish pub, so you better believe there’s a happy hour. If you drop by O’Riley’s from 4 to 7 p.m., you’re going to get two for one on all domestic drafts, house wines and wells. Check them out on Thursdays for their infamous dollar drink specials. (Please get an Uber.)

Lucy’s in the Square
301 S Adams St
(850) 378-8475

It’s called Lucy’s in the Square, but they’re not squares when it comes time for happy hour. Set an alarm for 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. to secure your seat for $2 off draft beers, $2 off wine by the glass and $6 off wine by the bottle. And since they respect the rules of Thirsty Thursday, happy hour is all day long on Thursdays.

The Grand Marlin
400 Pensacola Beach Blvd
(850) 677-9153

With a name like The Grand Marlin, you would hope that the happy hour would be grand — spoiler alert, it is. Monday through Friday, The Grand Marlin keeps the happy hour vibes going from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., while Saturday and Sunday are 3 to 6 p.m. The happy hour menu is vast, so we’ll let you be surprised by the specials.

The Wine Bar on Palafox
16 Palafox Pl
(850) 607-2089

Rather than sitting around and whining about finding a happy hour, go ‘wine’ about happy hour at The Wine Bar on Palafox. Happy hour commences every day at 11 a.m. and doesn’t stop until 6 p.m. Make sure to check out their wine list on the website for a list of happy hour drinks.

Blend Lounge
200 S Palafox St
(850) 466-5918

Blend Lounge is your ace in the hole on Palafox for happy hour. If you show up between 3 and 7 p.m. on Monday through Friday, you’ll enjoy $1 off wine, $3 domestic bottles and $4 Jack Daniels drinks. Saturday and Sunday offer the same specials from 12 to 7 p.m. Taco Agave is right next door, so you can just keep drinking and eating tacos for hours. That’s the life.

Hub Stacey’s
312 E Government St
(850) 469-1001

Hub Stacey’s scoffs at all of the convoluted happy hour menus around town. From 4 to 7 p.m., it’s $.50 off all alcoholic drinks. Thanks for making things easy for us, Hub Stacey’s.
