It’s a particularly good week for drinkers, with new happy hours, bar deals, and a rare BYO offer—but breakfast fans get some love, too.

Happy hour and later closing at Rappahannock Oyster Bar

1309 Fifth St., NE; 202-544-4702

One of our new 100 Very Best Restaurants for 2014 launches a $1 oyster happy hour, which also includes $4 beer and wine. Even better news: The deal runs from 7 to 9 Tuesday through Saturday and 6 to 8 on Sunday. The Union Market spot has introduced the deals in conjunction with extended hours, now closing at 9 and 8 on the aforementioned days. 

Brunch for dinner at 1905

1905 Ninth St., NW; 202-332-1905

Breakfast lovers can head here for a brunch-for-dinner menu, which will be offered every Tuesday starting this week. Think fried chicken and waffles, a truffled egg sandwich, and, of course, bottomless Bloodys and mimosas for $15. 

Half-price wine, Tiki Thursday, and other nightly specials at Tryst

2459 18th St., NW; 202-232-5500 

This Adams Morgan spot has been around since 1998 and continues to keep things fresh with specials, the latest of which bring a different scene to the bar every night of the week. Highlights include black-and-white movies on Tuesday with $5 Old Fashioneds and live jazz; half-price bottles of wine and discount cheese and charcuterie on Wednesday (with more live jazz); and Tiki Thursday, with surfer movies and $24 volcano bowls. 

New mixologist/happy hour for Water & Wall 

3811 Fairfax Dr., Arlington; 703-294-4949

Barkeep Steve Oshana (formerly of BLT Steak) has landed at Water & Wall. Look for a new cocktail menu in the coming weeks, and in the meantime, take advantage of the recently launched happy hour Sunday through Thursday, featuring rotating specials and a three-course dinner for $35 per person (bar only). 

BYO at Malmaison

3401 K St., NW; 202-817-3340 

You’ll have to wait until next week to try it, but Malmaison just announced free corkage on Mondays so guests can bring their own bottle of wine at no cost. Even better: Give chef Gerard Pangaud 72 hours’ notice and he’ll design a menu around the bottle.

Revamped bar menu at Logan Tavern

1423 P St., NW; 202-332-3710

The beverage menu gets an overhaul: You’ll find more local beers, expanded whiskey offerings—including two flights—and new cocktails, such as the appropriately named Samantha Jones, a riff on a Cosmo with house-infused cranberry vodka and sparkling wine.
