It's Happy Hour on Alabama's Beaches!
If it’s beginning to look a lot like cocktails, that means Happy Hour in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach is just around the corner.
There are plenty of spots to pull up a chair with your best girlfriends, guys on a night out or to celebrate an anytime occasion with your significant other.
We asked our fans some of their favorite Gulf Shores and Orange Beach restaurants for Happy Hour and craft cocktails, and we’re sharing those with you for your next toast with friends.
You don’t include “cocktails” in your name if you can’t live up to it! The Beach House Kitchen & Cocktails comes recommended by our Facebook fans. Happy Hour specials include $5 appetizers, $2 beer, $3 wine and cocktail specials. The Beach House serves seasonal cocktails made with fresh ingredients and juices squeezed daily. Syrups are also made in house. The Scratch Margarita is one of the Gulf Shores restaurant’s signature drinks made with Camarena Resposado Tequila, fresh lime, triple sec and smoked sea salt.
It doesn’t get much better than cocktails and live music on an open-air deck. That’s what Bill’s by the Beach is serving up. With a Happy Hour that lasts from 1 to 7 p.m., you’ve got time to sit and enjoy the beachfront view. Enjoy $1 off beer and spirits, $2 champagne and mimosas, $3 house Bloody Mary and $4 glasses of Moscato. Oh, and we can’t forget the house margarita on the rocks for $3. Pair your brews or cocktails with Smoked Tuna Dip made with mesquite smoked yellowfin tuna and peppadew relish for the Happy Hour win.
Known for its elevated bar food, the Anchor Bar & Grill offers some of the most unique bushwacker cocktails in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Chef Jonathan Kastner likes to mix it up a bit with twists on this locally famous cocktail. During your trip, you may find an apple pie bushwacker, S’more bushwacker and even a banana pudding option! If those don’t float your boat, house wines are available for $4 a glass. Pair your cocktails with an order of beer-brined Anchor Wings and enjoy the views of Terry Cove in this open-air Orange Beach restaurant.
