15 Best Happy Hours in St. Petersburg FL 2019 by Locals

ST. PETE FOODIES APPROVED SPONSOR:

Ah, happy hour, the time of day that most look forward to Monday through Friday. When the clock strikes 5:00PM, folks all over scramble to the nearest watering hole to belly-up to the bar with a libation, or two, after a long work day. If you weren't already aware, St. Pete's dining scene is chock full of incredible happy hours, at all price-points, and in a variety of settings (check out our full happy hour lists here).

Personally, I have both lived in, and visited a number of cities, and can attest that the happy hour offerings within our city are incredible, for many reasons. Also, in addition to just drinks, a number of restaurants offer food specials, and many said specials are offered late-night and on weekends, too. This, is an incredibly wise tactic, as many folks work too late through the week to catch a happy hour which ends at 6PM, for example (most of the time, I'm one of those people!). And for that, I'd like to thank the hospitality industry for doing their best to accommodate - you're all the real MVPs.

To make all of your lives a bit easier, we have narrowed down the top 15 happy hours in St. Pete. The restaurants are not ranked, but are listed in order by zip-code, and then alphabetically by each restaurant's name.
