Top Happy Hours in the 405

The happiest hour in OKC involves good food and cheap drinks. Here's our top 10

  1. Mickey Mantle Steakhouse

7 S. Mickey Mantle Dr., OKC

The who’s who of downtown convene regularly in the smoke-friendly bar of Mickey Mantle to unwind after a hard day’s work or pregame before trekking over to Paycom Center. With $2.50 domestic longnecks, $7 wine and martinis plus half-priced appetizers, every customer is

a happy customer. Our top food picks? Grilled peppered lamb chops with a button mushroom sauce or grilled tequila lime shrimp.

  1. 1492 New World Latin Cuisine

We like to show up for the 1492 happy hour drink specials and stay for the white queso! The drink prices are hard to beat with $2.50 Mexican beers, $4 house margs and mojitos, $4 house red or white wine by the glass, and $4.50 sangria and swirls.

  1. Black Walnut

100 N.E. 4th St., OKC

Chef Andrew Black curates a food lineup that has us drooling just typing it out: $11 lobster bites, $10 jerk chicken lollipops, $7 ‘shrimp & grit’ bites, $6 Burgundy mushrooms and $3 po’boy deviled eggs. Black Walnut continues to showcase its innovative cocktail menu with $3 off all well cocktails while offering $8 wine for the dedicated wine drinkers.

  1. The Hamilton Supperette & Lounge

12232 N. May Ave., OKC

The Hamilton’s happy hour is our preferred choice when looking for a northside option with elevated offerings in a delightfully moody setting. The drink selections are solid with $8 old fashioneds, daiquiris and wine plus $4 domestic beers. However, the food selections are the true stars with $12 shrimp cocktail, $12 smoked salmon (our favorite!), $12 artichoke spinach dip, $10 Bavarian pretzel and $5 bar nuts.

  1. Ma Der Lao Kitchen

1634 N. Blackwelder Ave., OKC

We know Chef Jeff Chanchaleune offers the finest Lao cuisine to the masses, but most don’t know about the killer happy hour! The bartenders will dazzle you with half-priced all cocktails, $5 draft beer and $3 Thai Basil Snaiquiri Shot. But the food will stop you in your tracks: $9 Lao sausage hot dog, $8 fried chicken, $5 beef jerky, $2 sticky rice, $1 chili dip. Trust me when I tell you the beef jerky will be your next constant craving.

  1. R&J Supper Club

320 NW 10th St., OKC

We would be remiss to not include R&J on our top 10 happy hour list with its nostalgic ’50s vibes and fire-lit cocktail wieners (featured for $8 during happy hour). Drinks seem even more drinkable at inflation-resistant pricing like $1.65 Coors “Yellow Belly,” $4.10 well cocktail, $5.70 old fashioned and $11.50 Poor Man’s Sangria (made with red wine, brandy and Fanta).

  1. Red Primesteak

504 N. Broadway Ave., OKC

It makes sense that Red offers a red-hot happy hour! $6 old fashioneds, $6 red mojitos and $6 house cabernet or chardonnay pairs perfectly with the $12 Red Burger. This burger is a meat lover’s dream with 10 oz. of house-ground beef, butterkase, French onions, white remoulade and a bone marrow bordelaise served with Parmesan fries.

  1. Rendezvous Pizza

Cold beer, pizza and wings, oh my! Rendezvous is the ultimate destination for happy hour with half-priced draft beer, dollar wings and $2.50 New York slices. The Bricktown location boasts two ping pong tables for those of you who like to break a sweat in between bites of peanut butter & jalapeno jelly cherrywood smoked wings.

  1. S&B’s Burger Joint

S&B’s Rock Hour has been around for ages, and as such, is a tried and true happy hour option most locals can vouch for. Rock out to music videos while indulging in decadent food options like $7 loaded queso, $6 fried pickles, $5 Slayer Fries and $4 PB Fries. Booze flows freely with $3 well drinks, domestic beer and the exclusive S&B Lager in addition to $5 Long Island iced teas and $6 Bloody Mary.

  1. Hideaway Pizza

We saved the best for last. Hands down the best-kept happy hour secret in Oklahoma, Hideaway Pizza is not only a Oklahoma pizza institution, but all locations offer half-priced all alcoholic beverages for their weekday happy hour. If you knew, you knew. If you didn’t, we expect to see you at Hideaway after work on the reg now.
