Science Club Happy Hour

'

Editorial Review

Update: Science Club has announced they're extending the deal through the month of October, too.

Just in time to ease the post-Labor Day blues, Science Club has announced a September stimulus plan: Happy hour will run from open until close Monday through Thursday as well as the usual 5 to 8 p.m. on Friday.

Science Club's happy hour specials are comparable to other downtown spots -- $3 Yuengling and PBR, $4 Guinness and Amstel, $4 rail drinks and $5 red and white Chilean wines by the glass. But the laid-back atmosphere, choice music selection and cool staff set Science Club apart from nearby happy hour venues like Rumors or Sign of the Whale -- it's the kind of place where I'd enjoy settling in with a date for an after-dinner drink as well as meeting up with the office crew at 5:15.

In any event, if you haven't stopped by Science Club in a while -- especially on weeknights when DJs rule the back room -- then this is a great excuse to visit.
