Whether you are in San Luis Obispo on vacation or a local just looking for a place to hang out after work, I’ve rounded up the best happy hours in town. It doesn’t matter the day of the week, everyone loves a good drink and it’s no secret that San Luis Obispo has a plethora of locations with deals that might just give you the urge to order another round.
One of my favorite San Luis Obispo spots to start the week off is Sidecar Cocktail Co - you can get happy hour deals from 4 - 6 pm every day, which includes specialty cocktails for $7 and all other spirits, cocktails, draft beers and wine are $2 off. While 2 hours of drink deals is great, you can usually find me at Sidecar on Mondays for their all day 50% off Moscow Mules! Whether you choose the Starlight, the Horse + Donkey or a classic mule, you won’t be disappointed.
When Wednesday rolls around, it’s a good bet you can find SLO chowing down on tater tots at Mother’s Tavern, locally known as MoTav. With flavors like Garlic Parmesan Tots, Buffalo Tots with blue cheese, Lightly Salted Tots, and Totchos (topped with cheese, bacon, sour cream, and jalapeños), you really can’t go wrong. Drink specials begin at 10:00 pm with $3 'You Call It" drink specials. On Wednesdays at MoTav, you’re encouraged to play with your food because winning the tater toss contest can land you a gift card and some bragging rights.
On Friday and Saturday nights, Luna Red features live music on their gorgeous patio beginning at 10:00 pm, but don’t feel like you have to wait until the sun goes down to get a drink deal because happy hour takes place every day from 3:00 - 6:00 p.m.! This Spanish style restaurant has delicious tapas plates that pair perfectly with a glass of sangria.
There’s no better way to start off the weekend than heading down to Frog & Peach Pub for Reggae Night, happening every Friday. This traditional Irish pub has been bringing live music to San Luis Obispo since 1994. Once you’ve got your $2.00 Red Stripe, you can grab a booth or hit the dance floor and enjoy the tunes all night.
