8 fun places for Happy Hour specials in Vancouver

Who doesn’t like eating more for less? Happy Hour is a great way to snack and sip for cheap. So gather your friends and grab a drink after work, with 8 great spots to enjoy happy hour at. 

Honolulu Coffee

888 Nelson, Vancouver, BC
(778) 379-6607 or honolulucoffee.com

Honolulu Cafe on Nelson Street in Downtown is the only one with its very own beer garden. Even the ones in Honolulu, Hawaii can’t make such a claim. And with its late summer launching, the beer garden started with a happy hour menu of drinks and small bites, bringing drinkers and diners a taste of the tropics. Coconut and pineapple flavoured beers are ideal with edamame and coconut hummus or tropical fruit flavoured meatballs and sliders. 

Atlas Steak + Fish 

4331 Dominion St, Burnaby, BC
(604) 453-0776 or atlassteakandfish.com

Located within the Grand Villa Casino, Atlas is a great spot for seafood and steak. But come for their Chef’s Happy Hour and get $6 glasses of wine, $6 pints of beer, and $8 cocktail specials. For food, take advantage of buck-a-shuck and $4 small plates that are well worth the price. Prime rib sliders, a scallop and tiger prawn combo, hand roll meatballs, and complimentary house-made chips to enjoy with it all. 

Homer St. Cafe

98 Homer St, Vancouver, BC 
(604) 428-4299 or homerstreetcafebar.com 

Stop by Homer St. Cafe from 2:30 pm to 5:30 pm or 9:30pm to close, for a larger than most specials menu. $5 beers and high balls, $6 wine in any colour, or with bubbles. And if you don’t see what you like, simply save $2 on any of their cocktails. For food, enjoy sharable servings of their popular items that you might not want to try at regular price. Like their rotisserie potato poutine, maple butter pork belly, smoked cheddar croquettes, or duck liver parfait. Prices vary from $4-12. 

Tojo’s Restaurant

1133 W Broadway, Vancouver, BC
(604) 872-8050 or tojos.com

Tojo’s is a Vancouver institution, serving West Coast seafood with Japanese influences. Pulling from traditions and serving up history, Tojo’s has launched their Cocktail Hour menu earlier this year. It includes crunchy and salty snacks that perfectly pair with their Japanese whiskey and sake cocktails. Seasonal pickles, lotus root chips, and Japanese egg omelettes with fish roe are on special from Thursday to Saturday, 4-6 pm.

Here are some of my favourite dishes. The 𝘛𝘰𝘧𝘶 𝘈𝘯𝘬𝘢𝘬𝘦 uses deep fried organic tofu and eggplants, along with a thick ankake sauce. I’m surprised by the crisp of the tofu even it soaks in the sauce 🤤 𝘙𝘰𝘺𝘢𝘭 𝘊𝘩𝘪𝘤𝘬𝘦𝘯 is deep fried stuffed chicken roll, and I love the plum sauce on the side. It gives a nice sour kick to the dish 😍 .
