Your week begins with Japanese dishes and drinks at Azabu, which hosts a Kanpai Hour daily from 6-8 p.m. Fill up on $5 snacks like edamame, yakitori chicken thigh skewers, miso eggplant, and shishito peppers, and $10 small plates like lobster tempura, lamp chop with Japanese chimichurri, skirt steak and the fish of the day. Wash it down with $5 draft beers, $6 sake, $7 wine or $9 highballs and cocktails.
Some happy hours are only good for the drinks — but not these. If you’ve been searching for a place that goes beyond the standard bar nuts and olives, look no further — we’ve rounded up seven (one for every night of the week).
1. Monday: Azabu Miami Beach
Azabu Miami, 161 Ocean Dr., Miami Beach
2. Tuesday: Palat Miami
On Tuesdays, you’ll enjoy $4 bottles of beer, $5 glasses of wine, and specially-priced cocktails all day long. To keep the munchies at bay, tuck into $6 shareable tapas like crostinis, fried zucchini, shishito peppers and more.
Palat Miami, 4702 NE 2nd Ave., Miami
3. Wednesday: Sette Osteria
Sette Osteria is the perfect spot to get over Hump Day. The Italian eatery in Wynwood hosts not one, but two happy hours. The first runs from 4-7 p.m. and the second runs from 9-10 p.m. You’ll get to sip on a selection of beer and wine priced from $5-$6 while savoring signature dishes like the Sette Sliders, polpette al forno and funghi flatbread starting at $6, and artisanal pizzas priced at $12.
