On the rocks, neat, dirty, frozen, or zero proof — we’re spilling the Long Island iced tea on the best happy hours in Charleston. Get ready to #DrinkUpCharleston, here are 16 places lifting spirits with their sip-worthy specials.

Beer lovers

  • Bay Street Biergarten | Wed.-Fri., 4-6 p.m. | Grab $5 snacks (like the freaky tots or the smash burger) to go with $5 off a liter of beer. It’s a good sign when a spot serves beer by the liter.
  • Moe’s Crosstown Tavern | Weekdays, 4-7 p.m. | It’s hard to beat a PBR draught for $1.75 (or $1 off well drinks + select draughts). Pair it with $5 bites like mozzarella sticks and jalapeño poppers, $4 Jameson and other select liquors, and $5 wine.

Hungry for meal deals

  • Indaco | Weekdays, 5-7 p.m. | There’s a good selection of $7 drink specials, but don’t sleep on the light bites including polpette + prosciutto di parma. Heads up: Happy hour is at the bar only, so snag your seat early.
  • Locals | Weekdays, 4-7 p.m. | Snag half-priced nigiri along with $4 wells, $3 select shots, $1 off domestic bottles, and $2 off select drafts and wines in West Ashley. At the Mt. Pleasant location, enjoy $1 off domestic bottles and wells and $4 house wines with your half-priced nigiri.
  • Pearlz Oyster Bar | Weekdays, 4-6 p.m. | Shuck yeah. Dig into a dozen house oysters on the half shell for $18. Order a half-pound of peel + eat shrimp for $15 and sip on $3 champagne.

Fun in the sun
