Should you care about Happy Hour? It depends on how dedicated you might be to shelling out nine crisp George Washingtons in exchange for some house white that tastes like aluminum foil. While the post-office pastime in Seattle isn’t as prevalent as it once was (read: the lack of people in offices), it’s still fun to feel on top of the world because you saved $2 on a basket of fries. The best deals here have all the details you’ll need on days, times, and discounts.

We like Percy's for fancy cocktails that rely heavily on spirits steeped with herbs, like thyme-infused gin or lemongrass-infused vodka. You can save two dollars during their Happy Hour, which comes in handy if you're in the mood to overspend on the $20 fried chicken sandwich.

When: Wednesdays, 4-10pm

The Deal: $.99 Per Wing

Sure, it's called "Wing Wednesdays" instead of "Happy Hour," but logistics don't matter when you're dealing with the best buffalo wings in town—especially when they're 99 cents each. Just note that this Belltown spot gets tremendously busy.

The whiskey highballs at Tamari Bar on Capitol Hill are excellent, and they’re made using a cool machine that only 10 other Japanese restaurants in the country own. We’re also big fans of the food, from spicy dan dan ramen to the wagyu beef you cook yourself on a sizzling rock.

Hannyatou is the sister bar to Kamonegi, and often our preferred spot to kill time before a soba-eating reservation. But we wouldn't mind spending an entire evening at this Japanese sake spot in Fremont, snacking on tempura flake-topped hot dogs and spicy gochujang squid salad.

When: Daily, 3-6pm, Friday-Saturday, 10pm-12am

The Deal: $1 Off Draft Beer, $2 Off Glasses Of Wine, $3 Off House Cocktails

Yes, this excellent Stone Way bar's Happy Hour lasts truly one hour, but it's worth it for boozy shrubs, Jell-O shots, and great non-alcoholic options. Though not discounted, Tio Baby's greatest gift to the world is their velvety queso—think about adding it to your order.

Can Bar is White Center’s best-kept secret. If the weather’s not garbage, sit out on the patio, which is surrounded by various doors. Just don’t try to open one—they’re purely decorative.
