High Quality: The Pines, Rehoboth Beach, DE
Tito’s and Tangueray on a happy hour menu! Yes, you read that right. Enjoy $7 martinis made from some of your favorite quality liquors, or $5 House rail drinks, and reasonably priced wine and beer. Not to mention the happy hour appetizers; the Crispy Brussel Sprouts with orange soy glaze and pickled fresno peppers are always a delicious bite. Note that the chef’s offerings are subject to change, but we have never gone wrong with the menu at this spot. Daily 5-7:00pm

Creative Cocktails: Drift, Rehoboth Beach, DE
The mixologists at Drift give you beautifully crafted cocktails. Their flavor profiles are unique and inspired. Not only are they well balanced drinks, they are so pretty to look at. While it may be a newer spot in town, they are doing happy hour in Rehoboth Beach right! $2 off specialty craft cocktails, $8 absolute martinis, $3 off glasses of wine, $2 off all beers, and $5 zero proof cocktails. In the warmer months, they offer an outdoor happy hour experience on the terrace. Want a suggestion of what cocktail to try? The Sazerac, a cognac drink, is an impressive, smooth sipper and the gin-based Thai-Me-Up is an aromatic experience. Wednesday-Sunday 4-5:30pm

Early Bird: Chaps Pitt Beef or Atlantic Social, Rehoboth Beach, DE
From 1:00-4:00pm Chaps, located off of Coastal Highway in Rehoboth, offers great happy hour deals including inexpensive beers and $5 margaritas! A great excuse to say "It's 5:00 somewhere!" while enjoying some of their yummy barbecue! Another early option is just north of Chaps is Atlantic Social. This space is everything light, airy, and coastal and has happy hour 2:00-6:00pm. They offer oysters for $1.50 and some wine and mixed rails for $5. Or, try their "chambong" a champagne experience!

Entertaining and Delicious: Lefty’s Alley and Eats, Lewes, DE
Voted Best Happy Hour by Delaware Today, Lefty’s is a fabulous option for tasty bites, drinks, and entertainment. This is not your typical bowling alley. Lefty’s is an upscale experience. They just opened a new lounge and bar area called The Spare Room that is perfect for an after work cocktail with friends. The added bonus to this happy hour is getting to enjoy ax throwing, top golf, duck pin bowling, or private karaoke (maybe once you’ve had a few $4 drafts)! Monday-Friday 3-6:00pm

Cost Effective: Irish Eyes, Lewes and Milton, DE
This is a local favorite: cheap drinks and a wide variety of food options make this a solid happy hour spot when you want a more casual night out. Can you beat a chilled mug of beer for $2.50? House wine for $3.75 and rail mixers and shots for only $3.50?! Seriously, this is one of the best low-cost happy hours near the Delaware Beaches we have found and both locations are by the water. Monday-Friday 3-7:00pm

Seafood Perfection: Fin’s Ale House and Raw Bar, Rehoboth Beach, DE
There’s nothing better than quality seafood when you are by the beach. Located off of Rt. 1, this is a great happy hour stop while visiting the area. They offer local raw bar options like 1/2 dozen raw oysters for $9. Other seafood features include 1/2 lb steamed shrimp, fish and chips, or fish tacos all for only $8. They also offer non-seafood options on their Happy Hour menu. This is one of the earlier and longer happy hours offered locally! Football Sunday specials are also combined on Sunday’s happy hour. Monday-Thursday 3-6:00pm, Friday and Sunday 11:30-6:00pm

Good Deal: Taco Reho, Rehoboth, DE
Taco Reho is no longer just a food truck; in fact, now they serve drinks! Check out their rock n’ roll decor and fun atmosphere as you enjoy some authentic south of the border flavors. All of their corn tortillas are made in house (you can watch them being pressed) which leads to absolutely delicious tacos. During happy hour, $10 gets you 2 tacos and a beer. (Typically one taco is about $6, so this is a great deal!) They also have $5 taquitos, $1 off beers and cocktails, and $2 off margaritas. Some go to taco choices of ours are the Baja Fish (so crispy and fresh), the Buffalo Shrimp (it is wrapped in crispy cheesy goodness), and the Pork Carnitas (because pineapple salsa). Monday-Friday 3-6:00pm

Best Late Night: Stingray, Rehoboth Beach, DE
Who says Happy Hour has to be early evening? Try Stingray in Rehoboth for the perfect night cap! The ambiance is a vibe, with a lounge area filled with sleek leather couches. After 9pm, the “Late Night Menu” is offered. Some of their most popular sushi rolls are only $9. Try the Rehoboth Roll, a tasty cooked tempura salmon option. Another favorite snack of ours is their steamed edamame for just $5. For drinks, they have $1 off wine, rail drinks, and draft beers. Additionally, they have a $7 “mai-tai” cocktail and $15 sake flights. They also offer some of the same specials during a more traditional happy hour daily, so you don’t have to stay up late to get the deals. Happy Hour- Daily, Open-6:00pm, Late Night- Daily, 9pm-Close
