Louie’s has a good 4-6pm Happy Hour with extremely affordable beer, wine, and cocktail options (all in the $3-$5 range), so it’s a particularly good option if you’re trying to save some money. They also have a kitchen serving smaller bar bites and even full meals, in case your catch-up with colleagues lasts longer than you anticipated.
