The Downtown Bellingham Partnership Kicks Off First Day of New Happy Hour Promotion

Happy Hour Thursdays brings discounted specials to downtown bars and restaurants every Thursday in March

Bellingham, Wash. (March 1, 2018) -- The Downtown Bellingham Partnership launched the first of five Happy Hour Thursdays today, March 1. The new promotion, taking place every Thursday in March from 4:00pm - 7:00pm, celebrates downtown’s food and beverage scene with discounted specialty happy hour menus at 18 local locations.

Participating bars and restaurants are offering unique menus featuring $6 craft cocktails, $5 wines, $4 beers and half-off appetizers. Patrons can expect a mixture of house favorites and unique specials for the menu offerings.

Happy Hour Thursdays was developed following growing community interest in downtown’s emerging food and drink scene. The new promotion serves as a replacement to last year’s Chow Down(town) restaurant week.

“Happy hour has been a longtime favorite for downtown bars and restaurants,” Lindsey Payne Johnstone, events director for the Downtown Bellingham Partnership, said. “Happy Hour Thursdays adds a twist to happy hour with creative menus at special price points. It’s a great match for the town.”

Many of the participating locations are offering unique items, including a goat cheese fondue at Camber, a coffee roaster and café, and the habanero-infused “Turn and Burn” cocktail at Hundred North, an upscale dining restaurant that doesn’t normally offer a happy hour.

“It’s a perfect opportunity to try something new or visit a spot you don’t normally go to, plus it’s a great deal,” Payne Johnstone said.

Participating locations are: 

  • Bayou on Bay
  • Black Sheep on Holly
  • Camber
  • Casa Que Pasa
  • Cosmos Bistro
  • Grand Avenue Alehouse
  • Horseshoe Cafe
  • Hundred North
  • La Fiamma Wood-Fire Pizza
  • Miller’s Back Door
