Happy hour is great but sometimes it’s hard to get somewhere from 4 PM to 6 PM to enjoy it, so the idea of reverse happy hour is something we can get behind! Reverse happy hour is essentially a happy hour but later than your traditional happy hour and usually lasts until closing time! Although not a super popular concept in Austin, check out the best in the city!
