When you’re getting off from a long day at work, there’s nothing better than relaxing with some food, some friends, and a cold drink. If you can do it without breaking the bank, all the better! That’s where Happy Hours step in. Lots of restaurants have certain times where they offer great drink specials or reduced price on food, all in the hopes that you will pick their establishment over another. But some places just do it a little better. Here are our favorite Happy Hours around Irvine for a perfect end to a long day.
If you are looking for a Happy Hour that you can enjoy every day of the week, then you’ve struck gold! Eureka! Offers Happy Hours from 2-6pm and 9pm-close every single day.

Since day 1, the food here has been a hit with critics and the public alike. During Happy Hour, you’ll get $2 off all beers, or opt for wine or cocktails for just $6. Then chow down on cheesy tots or Poutine, or go a little healthier with their cilantro & roasted jalapeño pesto hummus.
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But that phrase came about before the advent of Happy Hour. Now, things have changed. Try one of these Irvine Happy Hours and let us know about it on Facebook or Instagram. And follow our blog here for more Irvine treasures!
