After a month long renovation, the happy hour at Latitudes on the Forked River will be returning in February and we can’t wait. They offer $2.50 Bud Lights drafts, $3 Bud/ Bud Light Bottles, $5 Devotion Vodka drinks, $1 off all other drinks, and 10% off appetizers.
1747 Hooper Avenue, Toms River
McIntyre’s recently moved to much nicer digs on Hooper Avenue. Their expansive beer list (20+ on tap) and great happy hour specials have made the new McIntyre’s a local hit, despite whether your ideal drink is a perfect pint of Guinness or a refreshing pint of Long Trail IPA – everyone is welcome.
447 Brick Blvd, Brick
This newly opened Irish pub in Brick has been quickly gathering quite a following among locals. Stop by for their Wednesday night karaoke nights for $2 Miller Lites and $3 mixed drinks or beat the Monday blues when every food item is 50% off. Tell them we sent ya, Slainte!
1807 Boardwalk, Seaside Heights
We’re complete suckers for their $5 slice and pint special – seriously how could you not? Their Monday – Saturday happy hour that runs from 3-7pm isn’t too shabby either. If you’re looking for a Seaside fixture, there’s no place that beats The Sawmill.
Used to Be’s
287 Highway 35 N, Mantoloking
A favorite local hangout, Used to Be’s in Mantoloking is a watering hole that appeals to the young and young at heart. It’s a bar where you’ll always find a cold beer in the middle of the hot summer.
547 N Main St, Barnegat
The happy hour at Lefty’s Tavern in Barnegat is all “right.” If left up to us, we’d be at Lefty’s for happy hour right now to take advantage of their can’t miss drink specials and half priced appetizers.
