Cruising Downtown’s snackable happy hours

The Perch’s happy hour (Monday-Friday, 4-6 p.m.) features $2-off cocktails and $5 draft beers and house wines.

We all drink Downtown on Friday and Saturday nights, but Fremont East and its surrounding blocks are packed with after-work happy hours worth a few sips and nibbles. Downtown Container Park’s only full-service restaurant, the Perch, serves $5 snacks like fried calamari and outstanding pan con tomate, $7 flatbreads or $9 tuna tartare and shrimp ceviche tacos, all nice complements to $2-off cocktails and $5 draft beers and house wines Monday through Friday from 4 to 6 p.m.

Therapy gets started early with happy hour at the bar from 2 to 6 p.m. daily, offering 25 percent off your food bill, $5 wells and shots of the day and $4 house wines and PBR and Bud Light.

Itsy Bitsy Ramen and Whisky extends its specials from Monday through Friday from 3 to 6 p.m. to include Friday and Saturday from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. The happy-hour menu includes $2 PBRs, $4 wells, $3 takoyaki (fried octopus fritters) and karaage (fried chicken) and $5 miso ramen.

And if you wanna stroll a little farther, Chart House at the Golden Nugget just won Best Happy Hour in Casino Player magazine on the strength of $6 ahi nachos, $8 prime rib sliders, $4 wells and $3 domestic beer bottles, available at the bar Monday through Friday from 4 to 6 p.m.
