We think happy hour is one of the greatest inventions of the modern day. Who isn’t a fan of saving some money while snacking on small bites or drinking a cocktail? It’s a great time to try out a new place or revisit your favorite restaurant or bar — all for a reduced price.
And the beauty of this concept is that it doesn’t matter what day of the week it is; you can always find a great happy hour in Fort Collins. In fact, there are hundreds of deals that are always changing and growing in number day by day, and it’s quite difficult to keep track of it all. That’s why — you guessed it! — there’s an app for that. Reference our list mentioning a few of our favorites to make some plans for this upcoming week, or download the Fort Collins Happy Hour app (if you’re an Android user) for some on-the-go assistance during your happy hour hunting.
If you’re not an Android user, we decided to simplify the long list and provide some happy hour highlights. After studying the list in its entirety, we narrowed it down to a few of our favorite specials happening each day of the week. So skip ahead to the day on which you know you’ll be craving a cocktail, and make your way to one of these well-loved Fort Collins establishments.
Cheers! And Happy Happy Hour Hunting!
All Day Sunday
All day Sunday, if you win a game of “Rock, Paper, Scissors”, you’ll pay just $1 for a beer at The Colorado Room. We love that they provide lots of local craft beers on tap! And while you’re there on Sunday, make plans for another happy hour later in the week because on Monday–Friday from 3–6 p.m. they offer a great happy hour menu. ($2.50 pork sammys, anyone?)
All Day Sunday
If you didn’t make it to Road 34 to watch the Super Bowl, you have an opportunity to redeem yourself each and every Sunday with their all-day happy hour featuring $3 select New Belgium and Odell drafts and $3 wells. They sure do love their beers at Road 34! Once you check out their craft beer selection and bicycle decor (with a bike shop attached) you’ll know you’re in a Fort Collins bar. Can’t make it to Road 34 on a Sunday? Don’t worry — these same happy hour specials apply Monday–Saturday, but only from 4–8 p.m.!
All Day Monday
Got a case of the Mondays? Blind Pig has you covered by providing an all day happy hour every Monday! They offer $3 select micros, $2.50 domestics, $3 wells and $4 house wines. Check out their full happy hour menu, keeping in mind they offer drink specials Tuesday–Friday from 2–7 p.m. and a late happy hour Sunday from 9 p.m.–2 a.m.
We think Tuesdays should always be about tacos, so we’re pointing you in the direction of some happy hour menus offering taco deals on Tuesdays. Zquila has happy hour every weekday including $1.50 off all draft beer, $5 wine, $4.50-$5 margaritas and $6 appetizers. But on Tuesdays, Zquila throws in $2 corn tacos to the mix!
Similarly, Austin’s American Grill offers happy hour deals from 3–6 p.m. every day of the week, but we want to mention them on Tuesday because of their $5 tacos included on their happy hour menu. You can also get $5 domestics, $3.50 micros, $5 cocktails and $5 select wine.
See their lengthy happy hour menu to find out what you can expect! Visit either of their two locations — one in the heart of Old Town and the other on Harmony Road — to take advantage of these happy hour specials.
All Day Wednesday
Mulligan’s Pub & Sports Club has various specials throughout the week but they offer $3 Odells all day on Wednesdays. Additionally, their happy hour runs from 3–6 p.m. and 10–close on Wednesdays, which includes $1 off wines, wells and drafts.
All Day Wednesday
We are big fans of celebrating Wine Wednesday, and evidently so is The Garlic Knot! That’s why they are offering $2 wine on Wednesdays to perfectly complement your pizza or pasta, which can even be delivered straight to your door.
4–6 p.m. on Wednesday
One of our favorite Fort Collins establishments, Social, offers a variety of specials throughout the week, but we think Wednesday is one of the best days to stop by. Every Wednesday, their tradition-focused bartenders craft a new punch for visitors to indulge in. Starting at 4 p.m., you can test out their new punch creation full of unique and exciting flavors. And while you’re there, enjoy their “Social Hour” from 4–6 p.m. available every evening.
10 p.m.–1 a.m. on Thursday
It’s Thursday, which means it’s almost Friday, which means it’s almost the weekend. What better way to celebrate than with a drink? That is, in fact, why college students celebrate Thirsty Thursday, right? Bondi Beach Bar offers $5 unlimited wells for ladies from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Thursday. They are only open Thursday through Sunday and offer specials each day they’re open, so check out their website to see the entire list!
All Day Thursday
Elliot’s Martini Bar’s happy hour happens Monday–Friday from 4:30–7 p.m., including $2 off martinis and tapas. But on Thursdays, you can order from their Bubbly Menu, receive $5 cosmos and listen to live music! You’ll have a wonderful time at Elliot’s Martini Bar any day you visit, especially since it is located in historic Old Town and they are Fort Collins’ original martini bar specializing in classic martinis, creative drinks, seasonal cocktails, fine beers, wines, scotches and tapas.
All Day Friday
We know, we know…we already mentioned Mulligan’s Pub. But they have something special on Fridays in addition to their $3 Odells on Wednesdays. New Belgiums are only $2.50 all day on Fridays, and they also offer happy hour from 3–6 p.m. and 10–close. What a way to celebrate the end of the week and the start of the weekend!
All Day Friday
It’s time to celebrate Fuzzy’s Friday! Fuzzy’s Taco Shop has a ton of deals going on throughout the week, but each Friday they offer $2.75 Mexican beers and $2 Fat Tire pints all day at their northern location. And from 3–6 p.m., you can get $2 wells, $3 calls, $2 domestics, $3 18-ounce micros served in a cool-looking goblet at Fuzzy’s south location.
All Day Saturday
Lucky Joe’s thinks Saturday is one of the best days of the week, and we certainly agree! That’s why they offer an all-day happy hour each Saturday, featuring $2 Bud Light and Coors Light draughts, $2.50 well drinks, $2.50 micro draughts, $5 Guinness, $1 off all glasses of wine and $4 Jameson and ginger ales. Every hour is happy hour on Saturdays at Lucky Joe’s! But check out their weekly schedule of specials to see what else they offer.
All Day Saturday
C.B. & Potts is a lively place to be every night of the week, but Saturdays seems to be the best day to fully enjoy everything they have to offer. Their Collindale location has happy hour from 9–11 p.m. for that late night snack or drink. Appetizer prices range from $3 to $5.50, in addition to $3.50 18-ounce house drafts, wells, wine, and their famous Potts Teas.
