Johnson City is home to some of the most creative craft beer and cocktails around…and affordable living just got even easier when you take advantage of these happy hour and drink specials! We’ve rounded up some of the top spots in Johnson City to relax and have a drink, whether it’s after work or your next weekend hangout.
The Atlantic Ale House
The “Ale House” is a true local favorite for folks of all ages but especially young professionals. This craft beer bar is located in Historic Downtown Johnson City and features 16 taps focused on local and regional beers and ciders. The real draw to the Ale House though is the outdoor space. Their beer garden boasts yard games, tons of outdoor seating and sits right next to King Commons Park. Bring the dogs, a Frisbee, and enjoy a sunny afternoon with friends and family.
Cocktails, craft spirits, and modern mixology bring this Downtown Cuban eatery to the next level. The cocktail and food menu are constantly changing so check out their Facebook page before heading down and grabbing a seat on their patio. Here, they offer happy hour specials every day from 4pm-7pm and half price bottles of wine on Wednesdays! Insider tip: The tostones (a local favorite dish of smashed and fried green plantains with avocado and tomato salsa) with a cocktail is the best way unwind after a day in the office.
Little Animals Brewery
The newest brewery in Johnson City, Little Animals, focuses on mixed fermentation, farmhouse, and historic beer styles. You won’t find any milkshake IPAs or pastry stouts here. What you will find are meticulously perfected, pilsners, milds, sours, and saisons. It’s located just a few doors up from Main Street Pizza. Grab a beer and end with a slice.
“Free Flow” Tuesdays is the definition of girls night, done right. Every Tuesday from 5pm-7pm, get unlimited tapas and your choice of house wine or sangria for $22/person.
This joint may be known for their nasty nachos and flat iron burritos but they also have great drink specials (and a great patio to enjoy them on). Happy Hour is from 3pm-7pm on weekdays and features $3 well drinks, $3 margaritas and $1 off draft beer.
The Windsor Speakeasy
This speakeasy is located in Downtown Johnson City, but you have to know where to look. No flashy sign or sidewalk seating here, this unique craft cocktail bar offers modern interpretations on prohibition era libations. This exclusive bar is perfect for an evening meeting or date night.
