Monday – $12 Cocktails

Father’s Office


Monday mornings are generally agreed to be pretty tough. After all, you’re still recovering from the weekend! Thanks to Father’s Office, however, the evenings can still be pretty great. Everyone’s favourite swanky, 20s-inspired speakeasy is renowned for its 5-7pm happy hour, including $12 cocktails, $6 beer bottles, $5 schooners, $7 spirits and $5 wine. We’ll drink to that!

“Fathers Office is a great afterwork drinks and Melbourne roof top bar overlooking the greens and of State Library front lawn and interesting architecture of Melbourne University. This place also serves great bar/pub snacks such as sliders, wings, fish and chips, burgers, chips and wedges which are all really reasonably priced and well presented.” – svchu1

Tuesday – $3 Tacos 

Reverence Hotel


An old-school, grungy live music pub, Reverence is always a good place to end up on Tuesday night. It’s simple, unpretentious and eminently friendly, and serves up pretty awesome food (even some vegan stuff). If you’re looking for some after-work release, make sure you get there for Taco Tuesdays. That’s $3 tacos and $3 Mexican beer from 6-9pm, and it’s simply glorious.

Wednesday – $1 Fried Chicken

Little Red Pocket


One of the city’s foremost drinking establishments, Little Red Pocket is a sultry lounge of Japanese-inspired elegance, and was even voted in amongst the world’s top 100 bars. If that isn’t reason enough to visit, we suggest you head there for Trivia Wednesdays, when wine and tap beer is $5, basic spirits are $7, and fried chicken is a “poultry” $1.

“Stylish decor, delicious food and subtle mood lighting make Little Red Pocket a fun spot to see and be seen by the beautiful people. Happy hour drinks are good value and there is something on the menu for everyone. Exotic offerings such as sparkling sake go beautifully with the crab croquettes and the avocado tempura.” – starwoman8

Thursday – 2 for 1 Cocktails

The Social


If there’s one thing better than a cocktail, it’s two cocktails. If there’s one thing better than two cocktails, it’s two cocktails for the price of one! As luck would have it, that’s just what you’ll get when you pop down to The Social between 5-10pm every Wednesday to Friday. After all, why settle for just a single happy hour when you could have five?

“Visited the social for speed dating and it was a great atmosphere and excellent food.” – Good with feedback
