Summer is in full force, which means it's prime time for sneaking out of work a bit early to enjoy the sunshine with a drink in hand! In the last couple of years, there seems to be no shortage of new restaurants and hot happy hour deals south of the lake. Keep reading to learn more about our favorite happy hour spots in South Austin.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a better happy hour deal than Uchi in this ever-growing city. Uchi is one of the most sought after restaurants in Austin, so it’s no surprise that their happy hour deals draw a big crowd as well. Happy hour is offered daily from 5-6:30pm and features phenomenal rolls at just $5 or $6 each, as well tastings like the walu walu and machi cure. Both beers and sakes are discounted as well at just $3.

We recently blogged about how great the happy hour at Winebelly is, so including it in this list was a no brainer. With 9 dishes for just $5 and $5 glasses of red, and rose wine, this happy hour deal can’t be beat. The covered patio behind the restaurant is the perfect place to kick back with a snack and a tasty glass of wine. It makes for a pretty great date spot, too! The deal is offered Tuesday-Thursday from 4-6pm.

With plenty of communal seating and shade provided by large trees, the Lenoir wine garden is a lovely place to enjoy a discounted bottle of wine and some shared plates. The wine garden happy hour deal is available Tuesday-Saturday from 5-7pm. Be sure to call ahead or check their Facebook page to ensure they’re not closed for a private event.
