U Street is as charming as it is vibrant, and these Happy Hours encompass all of that greatness. From rooftops and margaritas to pizzas with giant scissors, here’s the Haps on these Happied approved Happy Hours on and around U Street:

1. VINOTECA | Everyday | 5-7pm |1940 11th St NW

Winedown (or up) with this vino-centric Happy Hour. We love Vinoteca’s charming, classic ambience, and their small plates are as delish as they come. Vinoteca’s Happy Hour features 15 wines at $5 a glass, and let’s just say… these are the wines that dreams are made of. Pro-tip: Hit-up the outside patio bar for a truly lux Happy Hour experience.

We’re just going to put it out there… this is one of our favorite Happy Hours in all of DC. And while it’s a few blocks from U street, Ghibellina’s Happy Hour is definitely worth the walk. Plus, that walk will help you burn off the cals from all of the delicious gourmet pizza you’ll be grubbing on at this spot. Every single one of these pies is on Happy Hour EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. The cocktails are crafty, creative, and tasty. Oh, and vibes… they got that!  Sit at the window bar and enjoy the sights of this popping corridor.
