Chicago's New Happy Hour

Ever hear the phrase "Its 5 O’clock somewhere?" Well, there was a time in Chicago where happy hour was still a thing. No, we're not talking about the all-day happy hour where a restaurant or bar offers a deal the entire day. We're talking about that good old happy hour, after work, where you can get multiple deals from sliders to craft beer all at an amazing price around 5 O'clock.

Well, if you haven’t heard yet, Chicago has finally just re-instated happy hour! You heard us right, Chicago has re-instated happy hour throughout the Chicagoland area. So, that means you can head out to your favorite bars yet again and enjoy some great happy hour deals that have long been missing in Chicago. So, where do you start? We got you covered. PPM has picked the first 5 places where you need to check out happy hour.

The Stretch

The Stretch is located in Lakeview, where 20 bucks gets you a meal deal, domestic bottles, and well drinks. Oh, and did we mention 5 dollar Jameson shots? It's all just steps from PPM's 634 W. Cornelia http://www.thestretchchicago.com/STRETCH_BAR_GRILL_-_3485_N._CLARK_-_773-755-3980.html

You bet, North Ave's Castaways bar will be having some amazing happy hour deals. Deals include half-priced margaritas and lime-a-ritas as well as buckets of domestic beers. http://www.castawayschicago.com/index.html
