5 happy hours to check out in St. Louis right now

We’re always looking out for new happy hours to add into our rotation. Here are five local spots offering food and drink specials we’re stoked about right now.

Kenny's Upstairs
South Grand's newest hangout spot for well-made cocktails and chill, unpretentious vibes has added a solid happy hour to their list of offerings. Old-Fashioneds, daiquiris and Manhattans are $6 each Sunday through Thursday from 5 to 7 p.m. Real ones will be thrilled to know cans of Hamm's beer are only $1.50.

The Golden Hoosier
The Golden Hoosier runs an all-day happy hour Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Bar snacks including Red Hot Riplets with onion dip, corn chips with queso, and cheese fries are all $6 each. Wash those down with a $2 draft Busch or $6 hosue wine or classic cocktail – choose from an Old-Fashioned, blackberry Collins or margarita. It's worth noting that margaritas are $6 all night on Mondays.
