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 just-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 describe in glorious, saliva-inducing detail.
Wednesday Happy Hour of the Day: The Scottish Arms
What's the best night to drink at the Scottish Arms? Wednesday!
This bewitchingly dim Central West End eatery is
always a great place to go to, especially if you love Scotch. (And did
we happen to mention that we love
on Wednesdays is the Scottish
also a steal: On that night, not only does the Arms host its
normal 3 to 6 p.m. happy hour, but there's also a late-night version
beginning all over again at 9 p.m. During Wednesday's late-night
festivities, cans of Pabst Blue Ribbon are only $1, and so are bottles
of Budweiser, Bud Light and Budweiser Select. Domestic drafts check in
at just $3.
It's pretty close to perfect: You can start drinking
at 3 p.m. and take advantage of the Arms' regular happy hour deals ($1
off glasses of wine; $2 off draft beers). Pause for dinner at 6 p.m. and
fortify with some haggis or cock-a-leekie pie, and then head back to
the bar and start drinking again. No, the Scotch isn't on discount --
but once you've been drinking for six hours, you may not even care.
