LoHi, a hipster hangout by some accounts, hums day and night with crowds flooding the many restaurants and bars opened in this area recently. The variety of restaurants and creativity of the people behind the bars make LoHi a great destination for happy hour.
Colt & Gray hosts a proper cocktail hour Tuesday-Sunday from 5 to 6 p.m. In classic Colt & Gray unicorn style, the cocktail hour is poetically introduced as the Violet Hour, an hour of hush and wonder, when the affections glow again and valor is reborn, when the shadows deepen magically along the edge of the forest and we believe that, if we watch carefully, at any moment we can see the unicorn, as Bernard DeVoto once said. Old school classic cocktails, like the South Side, Daiquiri, and Moscow Mule, are prepared with outmost respect to tradition and available for $7. Well cocktails and draft beer are 1$ off.
Central Bistro and Bar, the young but popular addition to the neighborhood offers fourty percent off their entire wine list Wednesday through Sunday from 4:30 to 6:30. The list includes more than fourty wines that range from the humble American Gruet bubbly from New Mexico to smooth French whites like the Daou Chemin de Fleurs, blend of grenache, rousanne and viognier, and rich reds like the Willamette Valley Antica Terra Pinot Noir. Other happy hour specials include $5 glasses of keg wines, $3 draft beers, and $5 specialty cocktails.
