Dig in to DC’s Best Oyster Happy Hours

We’ve all heard the old saying that oysters are best eaten in months with the letter “r” in their name, which means this week signifies the start of “oyster season.” Whether you observe that rule or not, there’s one thing that all fans of the bivalve can get behind: oyster Happy Hour. Here are our top picks for where to slurp and save on marked-down mollusks.

Brasserie Beck | Everyday | 4-7 PM 1101 K St, NW

What’s better than oyster happy hour? An oyster happy hour that’s offered daily. The Belgian-style restaurant and bar located on K Street serves up $1.50 oysters from 4-7PM If you’re feeling indulgent, opt for the seafood tower which is half-price during happy hour – in our opinion, one of the best deals around the city.
