A guide to our favourite happy hour specials in and around the Potts Point area, our business, your pleasure.

Thai Rock

This beloved Thai institution hosts Happy Hour between 5pm-7pm every day. For $6 you’ll be able to sink a selection of beer and wine to your heart’s content. Thai Rock also offer a number of delectable cocktails including the likes of a Peach Daiquiri, Thai Martini, Smoked Negroni & their own take on the Margarita, the Thaigarita. They also boast some of the best Thai fare the area has to offer, get some friends together and gorge on their banquet menu from $35pp a head.

Honkas Bar + Eats

If you were hankering for a gorgeous mid afternoon tipple on a sunny Saturday afternoon post-market, Honkas has you covered. From 2pm-5pm every Friday and Saturday the pan-Asian eatery offers an extensive menu of $10 cocktails.

Also, if you wake up on Sunday with a ruddy hangover, may we suggest partaking in their $35 yum cha special. For 90 minutes you’ll be privy to free-flowing food. The yum cha special also offers beers for $6 and bloody mary’s for $7, nothing quite like a bit of hair of the dog to ease a throbbing head.

From 5-7pm on weekdays Bloody Mary’s offer a bunch of exceptional happy hour deals. If cocktails are your kind of carouse they’ve got Aperol Spritz’s for $7, and espresso martini’s and margarita’s for $10. If you’re more simple than silly, Bloody Mary’s offer a selection of white, red and rosé wine for $7, tap beers will also set you back a very reasonable $6.

Darlo Bar

My personal favourite bar in the area, yeah I know it’s technically Darlinghurst but we’re birds of a feather. Pop into The Darlo from 5pm-6pm between Monday and Wednesday and you’ll be privvy t0 $5.50 Schooners of VB, Carlton, Pure Blonde, Reschs and Leftbank wines. Darlo lets you order whatever food you like to the pub which, quite frankly, rules. Order a coupla Manoosh pizzas between friend and you’ve got yourself an award-winning evening.

The antithesis to all the shitty Mexican food Australia has on offer, Chula is truly divine. Every day between 5-6pm Chula offer draught beer and tecate cans that for $5, or splash out on their divine Chula Margarita, Batanga, Paloma or Draught Cocktails for $10. They also do taco tuesday’s with all taco’s priced at $5. This ain’t no Old El Paso situation either, this is the real deal.
