If you need a strong drink at a discounted price to end (or possibly kick off your week), consider pulling up a bar stool for happy hour at one of these local Dripping Springs establishments.
Barbershop Craft Beer – You can’t help but love a bar with no frills and knows what it’s all about. That’s what you’ll find when you step inside this local watering hole that started as a gas station before becoming a barbershop and finally a craft beer bar.
Swing by Sunday through Friday and find happy hour discounts on everything from tallboys to draft pints. While you may not snag any happy hour deals on Saturdays, you can still enjoy one of 18 beers on tap while tapping your toes to live music.
Homespun Kitchen + Bar – Whether you are craving brunch, are looking to watch the big game, or simply want somebody else to do the cooking on a weeknight, this local restaurant is a go-to. That, of course, includes the happy hour specials as well.
Stop in Monday through Thursday to enjoy everything from BOGO steak burgers to half-priced wine bottles and margaritas. The happy hour times and deals vary, so it’s best to check the website.
Dripping Springs Distilling – The local distillery makes some of the finest spirits in the Lone Star state, and you can find its liquors served in many local restaurants.
In addition to offering tours and a pretty awesome events space, the folks at the distillery have a great happy hour worth checking out. Visit on a Thursday or Friday from 3 PM to 7:30 PM and enjoy $5 draft cocktails and tasting flights, as well as $3 sliders and tacos.
Route 12 Filling Station – A covered patio and rooftop deck make for an ideal happy hour setting. Throw in a playscape and splash pad for the kids, and you have a perfect atmosphere that appeals to the entire family.
The local restaurant serves up hearty fare such as chicken and waffles, wood-fired pizzas, and oversized burgers along with a variety of craft beers, cocktails, and wines. Stop by Monday through Friday from 2 PM to 5 PM and enjoy $5 house margaritas and craft drafts.
Dos Olivos – As delicious as burgers and pizza can be during happy hour, sometimes it’s nice to have some lighter fare to choose from. This is where the menu at Dos Olivos shines. The restaurant and market aim to combine “old world tradition” with “Texas charm” and does so successfully with a curated menu that includes shareable plates such as roasted oysters, charcuterie and cheese, and tartare toast, in addition to personal and family-style dinner plates.
Pair any food item with one of the eatery’s wines, beers, or wine-a-ritas, which are offered Monday through Thursday at a 15% discount from 4 PM to 6 PM.
Dripping Springs is quickly building a reputation as a community that knows quality food and good drinks. The town’s growing restaurant scene is one of several reasons people want to live here.
