Just a couple of months ago I wrote in San Francisco Magazine that very few high-end cocktail venues offered any happy hour discounts at all. (Here is my list of them that do.) Now venues are launching discount programs left and right, though mostly on food. Here are some that I've noticed:
- Level III to in Union Square launched a new happy hour program, offered Monday through Friday, from 4pm7pm. Guests can order a choice of three reds, three whites, three cocktails and three bar nibbles at 50% off.

Five is the magic number at this SoMa happy hour. Start with a $5 basil gimlet or a $5 martini, then throw back a few $5 spiced lamb meatballs, $5 fries topped with cheddar or crispy $5 pork belly. Give us five.
411: Wednesdays through Fridays, 5-7pm, Jack Falstaff, 300 Brannan St (at 2nd), 415-836-9239
The secret to a successful happy hour is going one for one—one bite for every sip. So Terzo's giving away a daily app—think: spice toasted nuts, cured meat, homemade hummus and pita—for every beer, wine or aperitif you order. Stay balanced.
411: Weekdays now through Labor Day, 5:30-6:30pm, Terzo, 3011 Steiner St (at Union), 415-441-3200
Despite its name and the fact it's SF's first "dessert lounge," you'll find daily deals on savory bites like beef cheeks and pork belly. Or pair your $3 Peroni or Fat Tire with a chocolate parfait with pralined cornnuts. That's our kind of dessert.
411: Daily from 6-7:30pm (closed Tuesdays), Candybar, 1335 Fulton St (at Divisadero), 415-673-7078
And I wrote a few weeks ago about the free meat at Morton's.
