December 21st is going to be the longest night of the year, and it’s also going to be the Best Night of Your Life. Obviously, a night this epic (or any night, really) has to start with a sweet happy hour, so we've picked six of the best places to score deals on everything from half-priced Asian street food to six beers for $10.
Really Dough's Mark & Scott Take a Bunch of Shots, Do Blind Pizza Taste Test, Argue a Lot
Sweetwater Brewery Brookwood Hills Boozing on on this suds-slinger's patio is like chilling at a good old-fashioned house party. If that house is a factory. That makes beer. And then sells that beer during its daily happy hours, during which 10 bucks'll get you a glass and six drink tickets.
Dark Horse Tavern Virginia Highland The focal point of a Va-Hi hot mess just waiting to happen, Dark Horse is one part English pub, and 14 parts late-night anything-goes, including a $5 martini list that runs ‘til close.
Takorea Midtown Upstairs, the apotheosis of polished, Buford Highway-style Korean/Mexican fusion. Downstairs, a secret bar... with K-Pop, plus half off street food and daily drink specials.
RA Sushi Bar Midtown A cavernous high-ceiling'd dining room w/ hanging sake barrels, a stone-backed sushi bar, a 20ft wooden pagoda, an upstairs lounge, and photos of one sexy, sword-wielding, silk-robed lady is the backdrop for the important stuff: sushi and apps starting at $2.75 everyday.
Strip Atlantic Station Already a destination for giant slabs of grilled meant and one of the ATL's eight best secret foods, this double-decker eatery is also a go-to for daily specials on sushi, hamburgers, chili, and more.
Meehan's Public House Midtown All four versions of this Irish-inspired boozer offer daily eats/drink specials, and a full range of classic pub fare like Guinness-battered Pacific cod, and meatloaf made with Italian sausage, beef and bison, but no-longer M. Bison since whenever customers saw it on the menu they were all "Ryu crazy? I'd never eat that!"
