7 DC Happy Hour Spots That You Need to Hit Up After Work This Spring



Now that we’ve sprung into April, it’s time to celebrate the return of spring weather! We all know what that means- outdoor happy hours, and lots of them. Here are our #FrayLife picks for the best spots to soak up some sunshine over an adult beverage in the Dupont/Adams Morgan Area!



Any restaurant that starts of its bottomless brunch with a tequila shot is a friend of ours, but Mission has some great weekday deals, too! Nothing pairs with springtime quite like a margarita and a patio, and Mission does both quite well!

Once warm weather hits, this super-huge restaurant throws open its shutters on the top floor for a dining experience with style. Don’t let the white table clothes fool you, they serve up some strong margarita deals that can kick start a great night!



This Dupont sushi spot serves $5 drinks and $7 specialty rolls for happy hour, and it has a generously large patio for you to enjoy the weather on as well. You can even sit outside in one of their stylish red chairs weekdays from 4-7 p.m.


Front Page

So, as if Front Page’s outdoor patio isn’t enough, FREE TACO THURSDAY is an event that can’t be missed. Combine three-dollar coronas with two free, chef-assembled, pulled pork tacos and you get something truly magical.


Roofers Union

Brews on a roof. Simple, yet effective. Roofer’s extensive beer list makes sipping an afternoon away even more exciting. A bar with ‘roof’ in the name can’t get more dedicated to this springtime celebration.


Lucky Buns

This Admo/Dupont spot serves up globally-inspired burgers and chicken sandwiches that are absolutely impossible to beat. Most importantly, come spring, the patio service will be in full-swing with $5 local drafts from 4-7 p.m.


Sauf Haus

Sauf Haus is a massive hall above the Dupont Shake Shack that offers expansive sky views and an ambience comparable to Oktoberfest itself. 4-7 p.m. means $2 off all beer and bavarian pretzels. Gather a big group and enjoy this true beer garden experience!

If you’re looking for something a little outside of the norm for your after work adventures, hit up Red Bear Brewing Co. in NoMa for a rustic, outdoorsy aesthetic.
