This semi-hidden spot tucked away off Broadway is well-known to those in the neighborhood. But even if you don't live near Charcoal, the trek over for happy hour (Thursday-Monday, 4-6pm; all night Tuesday-Wednesday) is more than worth the effort. With Scandinavian-inspired eats, you'll find unique options here, like the $6 Swedish meatballs with lingonberries (way better than IKEA's), and the grilled sausage of the day ($5). Add in $4 beers and $5 wine & premium well liquor, and you have the makings of a fabulous evening ahead.
A happy hour that goes 'til 8pm? Yup, we're sold. Monday-Friday, 5-8pm, Fado offers half-off well drinks, martinis, and wine, along with $15 bottomless Odell pints. (And you thought bottomless was only for brunch.) With all that boozy goodness, food is essential, so it’s a good thing there are $5 small plates, like a mini fish & chips cup, or Guinness BBQ wings, to round out the specials here.
