Kelowna Fall Activities - Happy Hour

The happiest hours of the day!

 

The Return of Happy Hour!

Now that we have waved good-bye to the plethora of summer tourists many places have reignited Happy Hour (or continued the beloved deals) in the afternoon.

Sandhill Wines not only offers their tasty wines for $6/glass on Fridays from 5pm to 7pm but also features appies & live music in September. That truly makes for 2 of the happiest hours each week!

OAK + CRU Social Kitchen & Wine Bar has a $5 bites & $6 bevies nearly all week long from 3pm to 6pm (Sunday to Friday). With firepits & heaters on their patio, you might even be able to throwback to summer outside and enjoy the lakeview!

Central Kitchen + Bar is a local favourite! They have drink features all throughout the week (check them out here) including $1 per 1oz of Wine on Mondays and $4.50 Caesars on Sunday. During Happy Hour you can enjoy any of their delicious drink features at their special prices and for whatever reason, each drink always tastes like another…
