After a fun day of adventuring out on the inlet, exploring a local art gallery or soaking in the sunshine on the beach, refueling with delicious food and drinks is a must. In Daytona Beach, the list of scenic beach bars and riverfront restaurants is seemingly endless. The good news is that you have a wide variety of options to choose from when it comes to selecting a happy hour spot that has everything you’re looking for. Find your favorite — atmospheric ambiance, specially priced steamed shrimp or cold drinks for a few dollars (or even all of the above) — at one of these popular places.
For the craft beer connoisseur:
For a delicious local brew, head to one of the area’s newer breweries, Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery. Located at ONE DAYTONA, a premier restaurant and entertainment district right across from Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, it serves up happy hour from 3 to 6 p.m. every weekday, and you can get a 20 oz. draft of craft beer for just $3 when you sit in the bar area. Talk about crafty savings!
For the dog lover:
Each Wednesday through December 19, 2018, LandShark Bar & Grill transforms into “LandBark” — the hottest Yappy Hour in town! Hosted by various animal shelters and non-profit rescue centers in the area, the event allows animal lovers to come out to the beachfront bar and sip a cocktail special as they meet adoptable puppies looking for their “furever” home! A happy hour with a cause — now that’s something that’ll put a smile on your face a wag in your tail.
