by | Jun 20, 2024 | BREWS & SPIRITS, EAT DRINK, NIGHTLIFE, PINNED, SMALL BUSINESS

Picking a spot for happy hour in downtown Richmond can be a pain. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. If we’ve missed your favorite haunt, need to update the information or you want your business included, just reach out. We’ll be adding to this list as we go along.

ed. note: A barfly isn’t just a regular at the local dive. Imagine someone who knows the bar better than the bartenders, someone who’s witnessed the rise and fall of countless cocktail trends. They know the best seats for people-watching, the prime nights to dodge the crowds. A barfly is a fixture, a constant presence.
