It’s 5 o’clock on a Friday, and you’re looking for the perfect place to unwind after a stressful day at work. As you’re already well aware, there’s no shortage of watering holes here in the Jupiter area — some with fantastic waterfront views, others with amazing food and plenty of drink options, and some with a little bit of both! But have you tried them all?
With so many options out there, it was nearly impossible to narrow it down to just a few, so here are 10 locales for Happy Hour (in no particular order):
Corners: (71 E. Indiantown Rd., Jupiter) Named after a popular local surfing spot, Corners Ocean Bar & Grill is the perfect spot to chill if you’re craving fresh seafood and a cold brew. Catch Happy Hour specials from 4-7 p.m., every day.
Guanabanas: (960 N. A1A, Jupiter) After a day of dealing with finicky spreadsheets or angry customers, nothing feels better than a cold cocktail (or brew) and an even cooler breeze. Snag a seat at the bar for Guanabanas’ Happy Hour (daily from 3-6 p.m.) and take in the relaxing waterfront view.
Rum Bar: (11511 Ellison Wilson Rd, North Palm Beach) When it comes to Happy Hour, Cruzan Rum Bar is hard to beat – that’s because you can score drink specials from 12-7 p.m., all while sitting by the firepit, dipping your toes in the sand and enjoying the waterfront view.
Square Grouper: (1111 Love St., Jupiter) If you can’t make it to the bar before 7 p.m., have no fear. At Square Grouper Tiki Bar, you can catch Late Night Happy Hour, Sunday through Thursday from 10 p.m. to close. Grab a chair in the sand, listen to the nightly live music and soak in the serene inlet views.
Jumby Bay: (1203 Town Center Dr. in Abacoa) Take a trip to the Caribbean without leaving Jupiter – Jumby Bay is full of island charm, with Jamaican fare, live entertainment and laid-back décor. Take advantage of 2-for-1 specials all day, every day, or come by on Wednesday night for Flip Night – beat your bartender in a coin toss and get a free drink!
Duffy’s: (West Jupiter- 6791 W. Indiantown Rd. / East Jupiter- 185 E. Indiantown Rd.) Three words: two-for-one. Two more words: All day. Yep, Duffy’s is the place to be if your schedule doesn’t coincide with the typical 4 to 7 Happy Hour routine. That’s because you can get 2-for-1 specials on select beers and cocktails, all day long.
Dive Bar: (318 S. US-1, Jupiter) Leave your worries at the door – Dive Bar is the perfect spot to decompress after a long day at the office. Hang out at the bar and watch the fish do their thing, or enjoy the beautiful marina views on the outdoor patio. Either spot is the perfect place to enjoy discounted drinks and sushi from 3-6 p.m.
Sandbar: (5 N. A1A, Jupiter) If you’re looking for someplace a little more luxurious than your typical tiki hut, check out Sandbar at the Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa. Happy Hour specials run daily from 4-7 p.m., plus you can munch on yummy appetizers, salads and sandwiches in a relaxed, open-air atmosphere.
Rooney’s: (1153 Town Center Dr. in Abacoa) Happy Hour, or “Cocktail Hour” as it’s called at Rooney’s Gastropub, features specials on beer, wines, cocktails and appetizers. Stop by from 3-7 p.m. to score a comfortable bar stool at the fully-stocked, Irish-inspired pub.
Dune Dog: (775 Ocean Blvd., Jupiter) Sit back, relax and enjoy the casual atmosphere and friendliness of your fellow diners at Dune Dog Café, a tucked-away tiki shack where you can snag excellent burgers, dogs, seafood and sandwiches, plus weekday happy hour specials on food and alcohol from 3-6 p.m.
