If you’re a bar-goer who finally has time to go out and about before final exams, look no further. We at the Clog are here with everything you need to know about the fine and dandy happy hours around campus. You can sip away without emptying out your wallet and meet some cool people. Experience the ambiance with your friends, and don’t forget to grab some discounted appetizers!

Raleigh’s Pub

It’s always a pleasure enjoying the cozy atmosphere at Raleigh’s on Telegraph Avenue. You can sit by the fire inside if you’re cold or enjoy the twinkle lights outside if you’re warm. Head in between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. for a happy hour and grab a beer for $5. 

Kip’s Bar and Grill

If you’re feeling more grimy vibes but don’t want to be out too late, head to the Kip’s happy hour to get $5 cocktails and $3 shots. You and your friends can get hyped up and still make it to bed at a reasonable hour.

Triple Rock Brewing 

While this downtown favorite doesnt have a happy hour, they do have Monkey Head on Thursdays! They only serve this strong drink beer on Thursdays between 11:30 a.m. and 11:30 p.m., so dont miss it! Monkey Head Arboreal Ale is brewed specifically for Triple Rock, and you can buy a pint of this quality 8.5% ale for $10! Its a classic Berkeley experience that all students should experience while theyre here.

Cornerstone 

If you want to be able to chat with your friends in killer dim lighting, look no further than Cornerstone. The layout is excellent for a group, and the people are so lovely. For Cornerstone’s happy hour, you can enjoy $2 off draft beer, $5 house cabernet and $6 select cocktails from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Pappy’s Grill and Sports Bar

If you are looking for a quintessential college sports bar, head to Pappy’s. The bar has different food deals every day between 4-6 p.m., like discounted chicken wings or tacos. You can get cheap drinks such as $3 cocktail refills, $4 beer pints or $5 wine, all while enjoying a sports game with your friends. 

Eureka! 

Always packed during happy hour, Eureka! has fantastic food and drinks in the evening. The lively yet laid-back vibes are perfect for catching up with friends over drinks. Eureka!’s ‘Hoppy’ hour is 2-6 p.m. with various deals every day like half off wine or $5 Bloody Marys.

Bobby G’s Pizzeria 

This funny pizza hot spot is home to a great selection of beer and wine. So head on over during happy hour and get discounts on drinks and pizza! You can get a cheap slice with your friends and indulge in $1 off all pints after class — all with a comforting feel.

Berkeley Social Club 

Known for its fantastic brunch, Berkeley Social Club is now hosting a happy hour from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. You can relish in the aesthetic restaurant with discounted appetizers and $2 off all adult beverages. Go check it out with friends next time you’re in the mood for trendy cocktails.

These are just a few spots to check out next happy hour! Whether you’re heading downtown or staying on the Southside, you’ll find a perfect fit for your evening cocktail desires. Just remember to set the alarm for your classes the next day!
