Happy Hour Details:
Monday through Friday, 4 to 7: $6 house martinis, $2.75 Miller draft, $3 Blue Moon and Stella Artois, $5 glasses of wine, 50 cent steamed spice shrimp, $6.50 mussels, $5 calamari, $1 boutique oysters
Happy Hour Days: Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays
The sleek, clean-lined bar, which spills onto a patio and reflecting pool in warm weather, sits adjacent to Jeff and Barbara Black’s upscale American dining room. The $6 martinis flow, and the crowd is made up of mostly moneyed suburbanites and young professionals. It doesn’t, in other words, look like the kind of place where you’d get a 50-cent spiced-shrimp deal. But weekdays between 4 and 7, that’s exactly what you’ll find along with half-price mussels and discounted cocktails. If you’re hungry, it’s one of the best happy hours around.
