The 18 Best Weekday Happy Hours in Sacramento

We can all agree that one of the best time periods during a restaurant’s business hours is their happy hour. It makes some otherwise more expensive drinks, appetizers and even full meals much more affordable, and you can skip the crowds that appear around prime time for lunch and dinner.

And let’s be honest. Sometimes you need a little pick-me-up during the week after a stressful day at work or taking care of the kids. Thankfully, some of the more popular days to offer happy hour specials are weekdays! That’s why we decided to track down some of the best weekday happy hours in the Sacramento area for your convenience.

NOTE: This post was updated in June 2018 to reflect any new happy hour times, menu items and pricing.
