Looking for happy hour in Solana Beach? We’ve got you covered with our top picks on where to go for the best happy hours! Enjoy!
Made famous as the Surf & Saddle for almost 2 decades, it has recently been updated and remodeled and is as popular as ever. It’s a locals place, and is also a favorite watering hole for the jockey’s, trainers and fans of horse racing visiting the Del Mar racetrack. Only a mile from the track, and typically the first bar to open in the morning (and the last bar to close), it has always been the place to get drinks before or after the races.
They also have great happy hour drink specials, Monday – Friday from 3 to 7pm. Get $1 off drinks and draft beer, which are already reasonably priced. They don’t serve food, though you can get food from the place next door.
Solana Beach Crush has a chic and contemporary aesthetic with a welcoming menu of Italian-inspired specialties. They have a cute outdoor patio featuring a table-top fire pit to cozy up to on chilly nights.
So about happy hour — they offer happy hour 7 nights a week! Plus they have a late night happy hour! Happy hour specials include $3 off house wines by the glass, $1 off draft beer, and well drinks starting at $6. They also have a good selection of happy hour food, with the Squash Blossom plate and pizzas being local favorites.
During late night happy hour (Wednesday-Saturday: 9:00pm-11:00pm), enjoy a margherita or pepperoni pizza AND a draft beer or glass of wine for just $10.
Real Bar and Bistro is a farm-to-table, Italian-inspired eatery. They focus heavily on sustainability and most ingredients are locally sourced. The produce, meat, poultry and fish come from local gardens, farms, ranches and fisheries. Dough, pasta, meat, sauce, cheese and other items are made from scratch in-house.
They have a fabulous happy hour, which you can enjoy 7 days per week, from 4:00-6:30pm. Happy hour includes half-off Call, Premium, Super Premium Liquor and Cocktails, plus $5 wines by the glass and draft beers.
San Diego Beerworks is North County’s premier bottle shop and tap room, featuring 20 hyper rotating taps and over 300 different bottles! You can purchase bottles to drink on premise or to take home.
The vibe is a bit more high end than your typical tasting room, filled with comfortable leather seats, couches and a high-top bar with barstools.
During the week they have two happy hours, one for beer and one for 3 slices of super-thick cut heaven — bacon! The magic hour when the two overlap is 5-6pm. Definitely check it out.
