Let’s be honest, one of Vancouver’s most popular pastimes is Happy Hour! Don’t we all love it when Happy O’ Clock arrives and it’s time to unwind after working or studying….or just tired from adulting? From Mondays to Sunday-Fundays, beers to Bellinis, and pakoras to pulled pork sliders, below are South Granville’s happiest Happy Hours that you need to try when it’s time to take the edge off. With quality options in our neighbourhood, picking a spot may just be the toughest decision in your day!

Whether you’re clocking off early, bonding with co-workers, hanging with pals, or finishing up shopping, there’s a fun array of Happy Hours in our neighbourhood to wind down the day or wind up the evening! The best thing about the eateries in South Granville is that most of them have early (starting at 3) and late night happy hour offerings so you won’t miss out! Here is our list of where you can set yourself up with sipping and snacking specials – any day of the week – listed in order of their location from 16th Avenue to West Broadway, on-or-off Granville Street. Cheers!
