No matter if you’re down for a kitschy bar with thematic cocktails or want a simple place to throw back a beer, there are few things more satisfying than hitting up a happy hour with co-workers and friends to let loose and recap the day. From simulated thunderstorms to one-dollar oysters, here are 10 fabulous choices for happy hours in and around San Francisco’s Financial District.
Though Novela’s walls are lined with actual books, this place is anything but nerdy. With cocktails named after literary characters, such as Jay Gatsby and Elizabeth Bennet, there’s sure to be something to whet every book lover’s whistle. Though Happy Hour drinks specials are hit or miss, you can’t beat a shared pitcher of scotch or pisco punch with friends. Happy Hour tends to be particularly popular and fills up fast, so make sure you get here well in advance. Their Oyster Happy Hour is held every Monday at 4pm (RSVP required).
Novela, 662 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA, USA +1 415-896-6500
