The weather has turned a corner in Melbourne, so if you're looking for any (and all) excuse to capitalise on the city's sunny afternoons, this wallet-friendly cocktail special should be at the top of your list.

Head to any Lucas Restaurants venue from 4–6pm every Thursday, and this multi-location happy hour deal will see you sipping on $9.50 cocktails along with a range of craft beer, wine, bubbles and share plate specials.

Running from Thursday, 24 August—Thursday, 5 October, the special is here for a good time — not a long one. Across the program, Richmond's Baby Pizza is shaking up spicy margs and Aperol spritz; Windsor's Hawker Hall bar will be pumping out I Just Called to Say I Love Yuzu and Welcome To the Junglebird cocktails on the cheap; and Flinders Lane favourite Chin Chin is serving up a take on the classic negroni spiked with strawberries, cirtus and white cardamon. At Chin Chin, you can also snag a vodka and lychee number, or small plates including a stellar yellowfin tuna tartare with shiso ($11.50).

Grill Americano is tempting workers in with bellinis and chardonnay ($15), or head to Society for a classic G&T, martini or luxe fries served with a caviar aioli ($18.50). Meanwhile, modern Japanese favourites Yakimono are offering beef skewers in a wasabi citrus oil ($15.50), a tequila and lychee cocktail and $6.50 beers.
