There’s something wonderfully magical about happy hour. After all, whether it’s drinks or hotdogs, who doesn’t love getting a discount? Luckily for you, we’ve pulled together our favourite happy hour spots around Sydney for every day of the working week!
Food and drink mega-complex, 99 on York, is a sprawling temple of swankiness with three bars, a cocktail lounge, a cafe, a buffet restaurant and even a Chinese restaurant. The Ground Floor Bar is where it’s at on Mondays, with the special Members Happy Hour running from 5pm-7pm. That’s beer schooners and house wines for just $3.50 a pop, so it’s well worth looking into!

The Soda Factory is a classic American eatery, and its massive, fully loaded hotdogs are the stuff of local legend. Better yet, they’re only $1 on Tuesdays! Just imagine how many hotdogs you could eat… Your choices are plentiful, including The Al Capone (Italian sausage, mozzarella), The Buffalo Bill (crispy chicken sausage, spicy buffalo sauce), The Yoko Ono (veg sausage, avocado, cheese), and even The Elvis Pressley fried banana dessert dog!
“This is one of the coolest places in Sydney. Great vibe, great food especially $1 dogs. Small bars around town should take a look at this format as it is an absolute winner!” – tsunamisuz
A suave, ultra-modern and exceedingly attractive restaurant, The Morrison is striking space in which to enjoy some proper fine. In addition to being incredibly shiny and fancy, it also does a great deal every Wednesday night from 6pm – 7pm where fresh, impeccably prepared oysters can be feasted upon for just $1. Count us in!
“A nice and sophisticated bar with the freshly shucked oysters of your dreams. If you enjoy oysters and alcohol go here immediately. However, beware of Friday nights as it is always ridiculously packed out. Try balancing a tray of a dozen oysters and a drink, its pretty difficult!” – Miss Forster
With its cosy layout, wintery motif and pictures of Peter Stomare, The Bear Bar brings a welcome touch of Scandinavian warmth to Chinatown. It’s a good place to find yourself any day of the week, but you’ll definitely want to make it down there one Thursday night for “Mrs Miggins’ Spirited Cup Cakes”. They’re colourful, handmade and very much alcohol-infused with your favourite flavours, and they only cost $1! Make sure you get in before they run out though.

El Loco is a lively Mexican bar that gets a whole lot livelier every Friday evening. Why, you ask? Well, because 5pm – 7pm is Loco Hour! That means five-dollar drinks for everyone, covering such favourites as Corona, Pacifico, house wines and all basic spirits. This should be just the spark to ignite your weekend into a glorious fiesta, so head down and melt away the stress in a hazy, alcoholic soup. Salud!
