Albuquerque's cheapest happy hours?

in Lokale Fragen & Antworten

  1. 21.2.2014

    I long ago gave up on finding a good happy hour to mix and mingle in ABQ (see this thread:… ) , but after a month in Santa Fe, I'd love to get out for a HH drink. Here's the thing though, Santa Fe will really make your wallet hurt having a drink or two. Even my beloved beers can start at $4.50 and head north. Those are New York prices as far as I'm concerned.

    Anyhow, I do know of a few good Happy Hours: La Cumbre discounts their beers from 4-6 I believe (and Mug Club members get the big pours) and Santa Fe Brewing offers beers for $2 all day on Wednesday and from 4-6 daily. But where else?

    I don't think Marble or any other brewery has Happy Hour. Back Alley does have a Happy Hour, if I remember correctly, and I need to revisit. But where else?

    Recommendations, please. I prefer beer, but for the right price, I'll drink a cocktail or whisky straight.

    Someone just wrote this about Bistronomy B2B "The beer was great especially during happy hour.  I tried many local beers on tap that I always wanted to try at $2.00 a pint."   So....there you go. Add to list.

    Indeed, Jenn. Beers there are like $2.20 at happy hour and $3 something regular price. I forgot to mention B2B. It's possibly the best deal in town.

    La Cumbre has 3$ regular beers from 4-6 not specialty like the Dank.
    On Monday Spice Parlor has 2.50 Marbles all day. I know they have another cheap beer special day. I walk by all the time.
    On Sunday Nob Hill bar and grill has 3$ La Cumbre all day and usually Marble IPA.
    Nob Hill bar and grill happy hour on other days from 4-7 1$ off drafts, 1/2 off liquor -then Tues and Thurs it happenes again from 9-11
    Geckos has Happy hour from 4-7 and 1$ off drafts. They have 2 beer and  1 or 2 liquor specials daily. Also 50 cent hot wing night Mondays after 5PM and a 5 dollar burger night on Weds.
    For Wine Scalo has 1/2 off wine Mondays.

    What are the days and hours of the B2B happy hour? I have been meaning to check that one out.

    Good info. I live at La Cumbre so I know their deals well. The other places I've hit before, but the beer selection at all the Nob Hill spots bores me.

    Sadly, Sister and Anodyne, two of the best beer selections in town, don't have anything resembling a happy hour, so drinking at either will quickly cost an arm and a leg.

    Don't quote me, but I believe B2B's HH is M-F, 4-6. The beers are still cheap no matter what the day.

    Cool thanks Clayton. I live in Nob Hill so those are the ones I am familiar with. Oh Shade tree was bragging they are trying to have a beer selection comparable to Sister. You be the judge but their happy hour is 4-6. They did have old Rasputin and some Stone Selections last time I was in. I would love to hear more about other areas happy hours too.

    Great thread, guys. I'm learning a lot here. I'll drop that Q Burger downtown has something similar to B2B, about $2 pours, 3-6pm. Nowhere near the selection, but Marble and La Cumbre abide.

    Nexus has $1 off pints all day Monday and Tuesday, bringing them to $3.50. Not bad.

    Adieux downtown 4-7pm: $3 well, $1 off drafts, $2 off top shelf.

    Howie, I feel like you and I have accepted a mission here, haha. Must find Happy Hour.

    I'm sad to report that Il Vicino Canteen has no happy hour. Although there's some consolation in that their Wheat and Pilsner are $4 regularly.

    What about cocktails? Any Maker's Mark on sale?

    Nick & Jimmys has an awesome happy hour with different yummy cocktails and awesome happy hour food selection. The bar area is a nice place to sit too.

    I believe Sister has a happy hour. I thought the bartender said they did on Mardi Gras.
    Art bar has a daily happy hour and the beers are 4$ to begin with.

    Another place I found was Luca pizzeria on paseo just east of Ventura. They have a bunch of apps you can eat dinner on and a nice tap list/wine list. Including one of my yummies Vanilla Porter from Breckinridge.

    Vintage also has early happy hour m-fri 4-6p 1/2 off apps. Monday is 1/2 off bottle of wine all night. Double score.

    Instead of the "Flag as inappropriate" option, I wish there was an "agree," "thumbs up," or "yelp" button to press when you like the comments/feedback.  If there was that option, I would have gave everything here the green light.  I agree with Jenn "oh no, that's too fancy" H.'s answer -- B2B!
