8 Spots That Host a Reverse Happy Hour

 

updated September 2019

If you’re at all like us, you are always at work way too late to make it to happy hour! Those 4-6 pm happy hours are killer! So, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best late-night (or as the cool kids say, “reverse”) happy hours in Dallas so you can still get a great deal, late at night or at an odd hour!

Quarter Bar

Located in Uptown, Quarter Bar is a go-to when the sun is out right after work to enjoy their beautiful rooftop patio! But, it is also a great spot to hit up late night Monday-Friday for both food and drink specials. And regardless of the specific specials that day, they also have a happy hour from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. every weekday that includes $3 wells and $5 beers, wines, and specialty cocktails. The reverse HH schedule:

  • Monday: $1.50 off PBR 4 p.m. until close | 1/2 off all bar food until 10 p.m.

  • Tuesday: $2 off all Texas Beer 9 until 11 p.m. | $2 off burgers until 10 p.m.

  • Wednesday: $2 off all whiskey 9 until 11 p.m. | $2 off all bar food until 10 p.m.

  • Thursday: Happy hour 9 until 11 p.m. | $2 off Voodoo fries until 10 p.m.

  • Friday: Happy hour 9 until 11 p.m.

This Southern whimsical restaurant up North is a go-to spot for brunch with its fried chicken, waffles and gravy dish that’s to die for. But did you know that if you drop by between 9 and 11 pm any day of the week, you’ll also find a $5 cocktail menu to enjoy?! It’s a super simple, but great reverse happy hour, and when it’s not as hot out, you can anticipate live music too!
