Kelowna’s Happiest Happy Hours

Posted on April 8th, 2023 in Food & Beverage

Enjoying a great happy hour is the best way to cap off a fun day of activities in and around Kelowna. Meet some friends at a brewery for a couple of cold ones or enjoy some delicious eats and treats at a new-to-you cocktail bar. We’ve put together a great list of spots so you can find a new favourite happy hour in Kelowna.

3-6pm every day

Truly embracing the heart of happy hour, this small bar has gone from a waiting room for Raudz next door to a hot spot all of its own. Pair some shareable tapas with classic cocktails in their cozy space. No reservations though so get there early!

Some favourites you won’t want to miss are the Popcorn to Die For! – popcorn drizzled in warm duck fat, fresh rosemary and Vancouver Island sea salt, and their fried Brussels Sprouts with caramelized apple and garlic chips.

2-5pm and 9pm-close every day

One of the best spots to meet up with friends for drinks, Earl’s Kelowna features a big rooftop patio overlooking the lake and plenty of room for you and friends. They’ve even leveled up with misters to keep you cool in summer and heaters to keep you warm in the winter. 

Their happy hour menu boasts a wide range of food and drinks. Some local favourites include the Shaft cocktail, for when it’s been a long day and you need a caffeinated pick-me-up, and their crispy sushi tacos.

Train Station Pub

2-5pm every day

From bringing people into town to bringing people together for good eats and delicious bites on their large patio, the Train Station Pub offers a great selection for happy hour. Our recommendation: grab a bottle of wine or bubbles for $5 off.

Jack’s Kelowna puts a spin on happy hour by combining it with their Daily Listening Party. Three drink specials – a beer, a cocktail, and a tea shot – Jacks Kelowna offers some great vibes and a casual atmosphere to wind your night down, any night of the week.

Skinny Dukes

5-6pm daily 

Staying true to the essence of happy hour, Skinny Duke’s runs every day from 5-6pm. Their menu – Duke’s Delight – is sleek, but that just means you won’t be overthinking your choices. Enjoy the eclectic atmosphere and great soundtrack. 

We suggest one of their custom cocktails paired with a Single Smash Burger. If you’re a fan of bourbon, we love their Coconut Old Fashioned.

Craft Beer Market

2-5pm every day, 9pm-close on Mondays through Thursdays, and all day Sundays

Check out Craft Beer Market for a great happy hour experience anytime during your week. The original Paramount Theatre sign and retro vibes plus plenty of seats means you’ll feel instantly comfortable, no matter your group size. Definitely stop by in the summer to mingle and circulate out on the big deck. 

Craft also has the Okanagan’s largest draft beer selection with over 60 local beers. Grab a bite or two of their tacos, nachos, sliders, and pizza. Not feeling the happy hour menu? Check out their other daily specials, which include TNT Thursdays and Wine & Wings Wednesdays.

Shore Line Brewing Co. 

3-5pm Monday-Thursday

Just steps from your suite and a great spot to cool off after a day at the beach is Shore Line Brewing Co. Grab a beer flight of their rotating seasonals with some tasty bites or treat yourself to a glass of their house wine for only $6. Bonus: their patios are pet friendly so you don’t have to leave Fido at home.
