The Happiest Hours

These 37 South Lake Union spots offer great food and drink deals that bridge the gap from daily grind to after-hours fun.

Seattle traffic got you down? A recent tanker-truck crash on I-5 combined with a freak snow storm left the city in gridlock during the afternoon commute. Next time this happens (or any weekday, really), take a deep breath, step away from the bus queue, and head to one of these great neighborhood spots for happy hour deals on food and drink.
