Guests can enjoy a selection of eight classics ranging from a Daiquiri with El Dorado White Rum, lime juice and sugar, a Paloma with Cimarron tequila, lime, grapefruit and soda, a Caipirinha with cachaca, fresh limes and sugar, and a Rye Old Fashioned with Pikesville Rye, bitters, sugar and water.

  • Narragansett should NEVER be more than $5. I can’t believe that’s a happy hour deal. It’s terrible beer and not just because it’s a cheap beer but because it tastes bad and gives you a headache more than a buzz. It’s probably less than $5 for a 6 pack of tallboys in Rhode Island.

  • Jeez, 3-6 p.m.? Given that Ledroit isn’t exactly full of office buildings, I would’ve thought a happy hour there ought to run until at least 7.

  • Lame. Prices are pretty much regular prices at other bars, and the times stink.

  • Well it does include weekends, so the hours work on Saturday/Sunday at least…

  • I like this place but it’s too expensive.

    • +1; we went opening night we were so excited. Food and drinks were great but we left with a $90 bill and still hungry after a couple drinks each and a couple apps to split; so we haven’t really been back since.

    • Agreed. for a $14 cocktail I might as well hit up the bar at Fiola Mare. And an arepa should never ever EVER be $12. I enjoyed my time well enough but I haven’t been back since. Too pricey.

  • How about some happy hour food specials?

  • Agree with all other posters. I’ve been wanting to try this place but I can’t believe this is what they’re calling “Specials”. Big turn-off.

  • Yeah, place is definitely overpriced considering that the food is only “okay” and comes is very small portions.

    Paul Carlson, if you’re reading, the food could use a little improvement and the menu a little discounting. My wife and I live around the corner and have been dying for more neighborhood spots to open up that are tasty/inexpensive enough to frequent regularly. If you could pull that off, yours is the type of place where we’d eat and drink once a week.

  • I’ve been wanting to try this place but I agree with the other posters. The HH prices seem like regular prices at other bars and lasting only until 6 is lame. They should have some good craft beers for $5, nobody wants to drink Narragansett. Don’t think I’d go out of my way to go here until they change some things

  • Agreed. Prices are not appropriate for the location.

  • Royal disappointment.

  • News to me: people drink Vermouth straight up. *gag*

    • Oh yes. On ice, with a sugared rim. It’s not bad. But this: “served on draft from a vintage copper fire extinguisher” is indeed gag-inducing.
