Awesome Austin Happy Hours!

Most of the time life is super expensive. Between rent, insurance, and cell phone bills, it can feel like a lot! Sometimes you have to spoil yourself with nice things like a tiff drink, a cold beer, or a good bite. Luckily, Austin has some great places to spoil yourself without breaking the bank during happy hour. Here are our favorite happy hour spots in Austin that aren’t going to break the bank!

BAR CHI SUSHI NEAR SECOND STREET DISTRICT
Happy Hour: 3-7pm Mon-Sat, All Day Happy Hour Sunday

Bar Chi has a real New York swanky vibe with really delicious sushi in downtown Austin. During happy hour they have a big list of food and drinks for under $5 like Gyoza, Tampura chicken wings and even sushi for under $2. It’s basically insane because sushi can be pretty pricey!! If you work the late shift, no worries because Bar Chi features reverse happy hours on Thursdays from 10pm-12am and till 1am on Friday and Saturdays.

BENJI’S CANTINA ON WEST 6TH
Happy Hour: 4-7pm Mon-Sat

Benji’s is known for being pretty expensive but we’ve got the scoop for you! Their happy hour features a $4 selection of tacos, shareable plates, and drinks. The best bang for your buck is their tender Carnitas or Market Fish tacos, for just another $4 you can get a great Paloma or frozen Margarita to wash it down. I mean, happy hour margaritas over everything.

CHUY’S NORTH LAMAR
Happy Hour: 4-7pm Mon-Fri

If you are from Austin then you most likely already know that Chuy’s is probably the best place for happy hour. Not only are the beers cheap and the margaritas strong but they feature a free nacho bar with unlimited chips, salsa, queso, and it even includes taco meat. You could basically eat dinner here every night and save a bunch of money. Mostly because it covers the food groups: dairy, carbs and protein!
