Are you looking for a crowd? A place to get a buzz? See and be seen/fancy?

Another great deal is bin 73 on Western. Until 7 (or is it 6?) they have like $5 martinis that are a great deal.

Buffalo Wild Wings on I-35 was the worst Happy Hour I ever seen! They ran "specials" on 22oz draw beers, but it was cheaper by the oz to buy 16oz pints. It was not long after they opened and their manager was obsessed with getting his store into the top 20 in sales. That was when the jacked up their wing prices up as well. My friends and I stopped going at that point...

Paseo Grill doesn't offer any drink specials, but they do have their yummy fried green beans for free at the bar during happy hour time. Plus, the drinks are delish.

Red Prime has a great happy hour menu, as well, but not many drink specials.

As far as some food happy hours, Pachinko Parlor has half price rolls from 4-6 and Red Prime has lots of snacks for $3 til 6pm I think.

I would say Belle Isle Brewery has a great combo of cheap prices and micro brewed beer

Mickey Mantles has a great happy hour if you don't mind being the only one drinking domestic beer

Woodcrest Tavern has the most interesting happy hours. Their system is a progressive happy hour. Meaning the beer is cheapest starting at noon and gets more expensive as the day goes on. A real great place to have a beer.

Doesn't apply to low point beer.

I agree with Easy 180 on Belle Isle. Hubby and I go there about twice a week, but unfortunately due to work schedules, don't make it for Happy Hour. Since I don't beer (I'm more of a Merlot or LIT person) I'm not sure what their beer specials are, but all appetizers are 1/2 price before 7 p.m. Tu-Fri. On Mondays, is their "Pizza and Pints" night. We love the place because the food and drink prices are very reasonable and everything is very good. Where else could you get a good dirty martini for $6? The wait staff is experienced and friendly, and the owners care about their clientele. No, we're not owners, just big fans of the restaurant! Try it if you haven't been there yet!

To add, a lot of places have beer specials during Thunder games which often takes place during happy hour.
