Downtown Delray Beach Happy Hours to Check Out – Plus Noreen’s Fave Pairings

Looking for some Delray Beach Happy Hours? In America’s most fun small town, there are options a-plenty!

How early would you like to start? SALT 7 on the Ave offers happy hour from 3-7pm. They offer $5 Martinis in luscious flavors like Cucumber Watermelon or Blood Orange, plenty of beer and wine options, and a nice selection of small plates starting at only $3! Insider tip: The outside seating here is fantastic – it’s the place to be on a temperate South Florida evening.  

Noreen’s Picks: $5 Cucumber Watermelon Martini paired The Fillet Mignon bites


City Oyster is another local, favorite, offering happy hour 4-7pm daily at the bar. You’ll enjoy half-price drink specials and $1 raw bar offerings. For many of us, this is the ideal neighborhood place – the one where everyone knows your name!

Noreen’s Picks: See Wayne or Teddy at the bar and ask them to surprise you with a special cocktail made just for you!


Or how about “working late” at The Office? Happy hour here is 3-7pm. A lovely outside seating area at the bar is the perfect setting for drink specials starting at only $3 and food options $4+.

Noreen’s Picks: Blood Orange Martini with Fried Green Tomatoes


If you seek a laid back Key West-style option, Crane’s Beach House does a festive happy hour winding down the week on Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays from 5-6pm at their tropical tiki bar along the pool. Live music adds to the island ambience. A variety of 50% off drink specials are on the menu, but the sangria is the way to go!

Noreen’s Picks: Try the red sangria! So refreshing!


Further east along the beach, look for Boston’s on the Beach!  This classic Delray Beach happy hour spot is offers specials daily from 4-7pm with half-off drink and food specials.

Noreen’s Picks: You can’t beat the value of the one dollar bud light drafts paired with a half- pound of peel and eat shrimp!


These are just a few of our personal favorite Downtown Delray Beach happy hours. There are many more options, some inside the local hotels, some stand-alone bars and restaurants. Check out our Dining and Nightlife page for an overview of the area’s hottest spots.
