The Spot: Windsor, 5223 N. Central Ave., Phoenix, 602-279-1111.
The Hours: 11 am- 5 pm, daily.
The Details: Though this happy hour is limited to booze, $5 goes a very long way at Windsor. Enjoy pitchers of beer, wine on tap, AND their kick ass signature cocktails for just $5, before 5 pm.
(Hint: Friend Windsor on facebook and look out for occasional secret code words for free stuff.)
(Windsor gets carded, after the jump.)
The Cost: One pitcher of Hoegarrden, one No. 29 cocktail, one appetizer and a side of mac n cheese, came out to $19, before tax and tip.
The Conclusion: Quality discounts on quality booze doesn't get much better than this. Though we were a bit bummed to find there were no discounts on food items, Windsor's bar snack and appetizer prices are rather affordable to begin with. But with a list of cocktails this progressive, innovative, and delicious, offered at $5 only, we almost forgot we were hungry.
Our Corn Dog Poppers were the perfect accompaniment to a midday pitcher of Hoegarrden, and reasonably priced at $6.
Our happy hour afternoon spent at Windsor was fun, buzz-inducing, delicious and affordable.
