Happy Hour Cincinnati: McCormick & Schmick’s

This week’s highlighted happy hour is McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood Restaurant. Doesn’t sound like a good happy hour place right…WRONG. Happy hour at McCormick & Schmick’s is M-F from 4:00pm – 6:30pm. They also have an evening happy hour from 9:30pm – 11:00pm M-Th. Plus the location is just about as central as you can get – directly across the street from Fountain Square.

Their happy hour menu (PDF, 77kb) consists of a variety of food. It includes the fish as you would expect, as well as, a number of other items for those not into the whole seafood thing. The main item they’re known for is their 1/2 lb Cheeseburger with fries for only $1.95.

McCormick & Schmick’s generally doesn’t do specials on their drinks. With that said, the bar has a good selection of drinks and the typical cost for a beer is $3.75. There is also a two drink minimum during happy hour times, but they do not necessarily have to be alcoholic as soft drinks count towards your two drink minimum.

Happy Hour Cincinnati: Buddakhan

I don’t think a lot of people know about Buddakhan, but its got a nice happy hour (M-F) drink selection and a huge food menu. They now have a lunch, dinner, and late night food menu to take care of their customers all throughout the day.

For happy hour you can get 22oz. drafts for $2 which includes Bud Light and 2 rotating featured drafts. If draft beer isn’t your thing then you can choose from 40 different selections of beer on stock.

This is a great spot to hit up midway through your night if you’re looking for some food and want the drinks to keep on flowing. It also works for that late night end cap (open until 2:30am every day). Buddakhan also has live music occasionally and many of the tables include their own personal TV on the table.

The other great thing about Buddakhan is its location. All you have to do is turn your head and you could continue your hop to Lodge Bar, BlackFinn, Madonna’s, Sully’s, Cadillac Ranch, Universal Grille, Rockin’ Robins, Via Vite, Havana Martini Club, Arnold’s, Blue Wisp Jazz Club, or Nada (I’m sure I forgot something, so forgive me).
