Happy Hour of the Day: Modesto Tapas Bar & Restaurant



In this week's print edition, we're rolling out the Riverfront Times' comprehensive list of the best happy hours in St. Louis. (And no, this isn't only being done as a public service to you, dear reader -- we're also promoting the very cool free smart-phone app that includes our fascinating finds.)

In conjunction with the soon-to-be-unveiled print feature, we've chosen one truly terrific happy hour for each day of the week. So be sure to stop back at Daily RFT as the week continues; we've got five more happy hours to go!

Tuesday Happy Hour of the Day: Modesto Tapas Bar & Restaurant

Happy hour is consistently generous at Modesto; the tapas bar and restaurant in the Hill neighborhood charges just $5 daily cocktail specials, $6 for a glass of the sangria del dia, and $2.50 to $3 for the full line of bottled and draft beers.

But most days, the fun only goes from 5 to 7 p.m. Not so on Tuesday -- on Tuesdays at Modesto, you can enjoy the discounted prices all night long.

And yes, that's a loooong time to be pouring drinks down your gullet, but Modesto does its part to make sure you get some food to soak up the booze. Its happy hour features a roster of single-bite tapas for as little as 25 cents. Again, that special is good every day of the week, but only on Tuesday is it available all night long. Woohoo!
