Best Happy Hour Specials In Cape Town

Being a Capetonian, I love a good happy hour special. Scrap that, any special for that matter! They are generally in abundance over the winter months, and tend to fall away over summer. But, some businesses love us enough to keep their specials going through the festive season, which I respect. After all, us locals are the ones that support them in the down months!


So without boring you too much, I have put together a list of my best Happy Hour specials around Cape Town. I have included some of the winners that are all day and may include food options too, because HELL YEAH! So without further ado, here are my best spots to get gesuip on the cheap in The Mother City below. If you have any other winners, please drop them in the comments below so I can check them out!

Hudson’s Burger Joint


Another cracker of a special which involves all the best things in life. Head down to any Hudson’s in Cape Town (Kloof Street, Claremont, Green Point, Stellenbosch) for half price cocktails, starters and draughts from 16h30-18h30 from Monday to Friday! They make a mean Long Island, which comes served in a massive goblet style glass, and from the food menu the deep fried mac & cheese balls are also a good decision!

Arcade Cafe


Arcade Cafe have just launched their new Happy Hour for summer! Get half price on any of their famous cocktails from 16h00-18h00 on Tuesday to Friday, and be sure to give their new menu a bash. If you’re a burger fan then look no further than The Brooklyn, if Mexican is your thing then give their nachos a bash and if you’re hungry as fuck, the crispy chicken is one of my personal best! They have rocking nightlife and DJ’s from Thursday-Saturday and once a month block parties once a month on a Sunday.

Roast & Co.


This is the new brain child from the guys that brought you HQ. It’s the same vibe as it’s big brother, but except with everything roast chicken based! They have an epic courtyard with an outside bar, perfect for after work drinks. Better yet, they have 2-4-1 happy hour specials on all beers, wines and cocktails from 17h00-19h00. I would highly recommend their cocktails, which if you have a squiz above, don’t need much introduction!
