Guide to Happy Hours after 5 pm

One of my favorite things about Nashville is how much we collectively love a good happy hour. Unfortunately, some of the specials end so early, a working Xennial can’t take advantage of the deals.

But have no fear – all of the places below offer Happy Hours that extend beyond the 5:00 work day. (Of course, be sure to check hours and specials with the restaurant before heading out. It’s been a minute since I confirmed the info on this list was still accurate.)

*A note about this list. I only included restaurants/bars that had specials at least Monday-Thursday or every weeknight they’re open. For a comprehensive list of happy hours, Nashville Guru will always be king.
