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.

Check out the picks below, and make sure to fully map out a perfect evening with our itinerary builder.

Austin Holt

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

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.

Austin Holt

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

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!"

Meehan's is your one stop shop for true Irish pubbiness, boasting knockout burgers and pints, right in the heart of Midtown. Check out their patio'd outdoor space for a brew and a bite. We think that Meehan's is the best Irish pub in Atlanta, but you'll have to stop by and see for yourself.

4. Takorea 818 Juniper St, Atlanta, GA 30308 (Midtown)

The Hankook team's taken Abrigo's place and hooked it up with a Korean/Mexican menu, and a deliciously punny name, plus interior trimmings like Asian string lamps, sombreros, and a wall plastered with rusty tin roof panels (naturally, as that connotes all cultures). Street-snack on fried ginger scallion pork dumplings, go "Tako" on the BLK (pork belly/kimchi/red pepper sauce), then grab a bowl of jalapeno pork/beef-meatballed spaghetti, or a spicy all-beef "Firedog", also Randy Jackson's answer to the prompt "when there’s smoke there's ____".

5. RA Sushi 1080 Peachtree St, Atlanta, GA 30309 (Midtown)

RA's plating signature sushi rolls and fusion dishes and slingin' a no-joke selection of imbibeables in a space that replaces the counter-style vibe with a more club/lounge atmosphere overseen by the ex-Fado/STATS GM, thanks to 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.
