Happy Hour: a period of the day when food & drinks are sold at a reduced price in a bar or restaurant. 

Another great thing about Happy Hour is that it's an excellent opportunity to gather with friends, colleagues or meet new people in a more relaxed and informal setting. Having a chance to unwind after a long day at work, engage in conversation, and strengthen relationships while enjoying a drink together. 

Happy Hour encourages people to try new places, which we hope this will do. With many establishments complementing their drink specials with discounted appetizers during Happy Hour, it's an excellent opportunity to sample a variety of tasty bites or enjoy your favorite snacks at a reduced price. 

This question was posted online and caught my attention because I'm always looking for great new spots for Happy Hour.

What are some excellent spots to check out for Happy Hour in the area (Meridian)? Mainly looking to have a few drinks!

People shared their favorite Happy Hour spots, and there were plenty of locations in Meridian that I had yet to hear of and thought it would be a good idea to share these with you! 

What do you consider a good Happy Hour? 

Is it the drink specials? The food specials? Or both? Some establishments are known for their "buy one, get one free" Happy Hour in Boise, but is there a bar or restaurant that does that in Meridian? 

That would be the only reason I go to a Happy Hour, I also appreciate a good atmosphere, appetizers, or "shareables" for the table. Of course, you can't forget about location either. Having a place where everyone can come together that isn't too far out of the way is also a plus! 

If you don't see your favorite Happy Hour spot on this list, please send it to me at kyle.matthews@townsquaremedia.com
