Happy Hours in Philly are available on every corner and in almost every bar and restaurant, but some are better than others. In some cases you'll find bottom of the barrel prices, others offer clearance sales on top quality products, and every now and again you're downing boozy combos. Some throw lots of free food your way, and in other cases it's just a rowdy good time with like-minded drinkers. Here now, we present, in no particular order: Philly's Best Happy Hours.

Varga Bar

Copy Link
The Varga Bar Happy Hour features 20+ taps of rare American craft beer at recession prices. That's a scene.

Good Dog Bar & Restaurant

Copy Link
Wednesday is Can Night at the Good Dog, which means all beer in metal-from PBR pounders to Great Divide Espresso Oak-Aged Yeti Imperial Stout-is on the cheap. But Happy Hour at Good Dog is great any night of the week.

One Tippling Place

Copy Link
A pretty space and top notch bartenders make for a great environment, but the $5 Fish House Punch makes Happy Hour extra happy.

12 Steps Down

Copy Link
One of the best neighborhood bars in Philly, 12 Steps Down has a vibe and scene unlike any other. And from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. all well drinks are $2.

American Sardine Bar

Copy Link
Happy Hour is a little earlier here, running from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m.. But, you'll get half price craft cans here, and ridiculously cheap $8 growler fills.

Bar 210 at Lacroix

Copy Link
Lacroix is always top-notch, and their Happy Hour is no different. Cocktails are half-price and, more importantly, they have free hors d'ouevres.

The Bards Irish Bar

Copy Link
The Bards has not one, but two Happy Hours. From 6-8 p.m. they have $5 cocktails and half-price food. From 10 p.m.-12 a.m. they have $6 Tully Ginger.

Jerry's Bar

Copy Link
The vibe here is fantastic after dark, so it's a good thing that Happy Hour happens from 10 p.m. until Midnight. Half priced cans and cocktails to celebrate night time.

José Pistola's

Copy Link
The new menu is fantastic, but the margaritas are amazing as always. Good thing they're on sale by the pitcher for just $15 from 5-7 p.m.

London Grill

Copy Link
From 5-7 p.m., cocktails are just $3, and so are the mini menu bites. Lotta savings going on in Fairmount.

The Mildred

Copy Link
The Mildred Happy Hour happens from 5:30-7 p.m. and that means 1/2 price bar menu and $5 Mildred House Punch.

Oyster House

Copy Link
One of the very best Happy Hours in Philly, the Oyster House offers $3 Oyster Shooters and buck-a-shuck oyster of the day.

Ray's Happy Birthday Bar

Copy Link
Happy Hour at Ray's goes from 7 p.m. until 2 a.m., and $4 gets you a Natty Boh and shot of Windsor.

Rotten Ralph's

Copy Link
From 4 until 6 p.m., Rotten Ralph's has one of the more rowdy Happy Hours in town, especially on Friday. And that means $5 LITs and frozen drinks.
The Happy Hour at Zahav is a lot of fun, and a good deal, too. From 5 until 7 p.m., cocktails are $5, and most importantly, half-price hummus.
