Happy hour is a well-worn tradition of bars and restaurants around the world. In Melbourne, if you walk into a bar there's likely a happy hour special at some point in the week. A new initiative running throughout January 2021, however, is one-upping all other happy hours.

For the entire month of January, 30 much-loved Melbourne venues are offering 50 percent off their entire menu for one hour each day. Drink or dine at the likes of Fargo & Co, Albert Park Lake Club, State of Grace, The Duke of Wellington and The Smith from 5–6pm between Friday, January 1 and Sunday, January 31 and you'll receive 50 percent off your entire order.

That means you could head to Harlow for $10 espresso martinis and $12.50 parmigianas, for $8 beef sliders and $3.25 Furphys at Middle Park Hotel, and to Trinket for $9 margherita pizzas and $11 pisco sours.

All you need to do in order to get the discount is pay by mobile at the end of your meal using either the Australian Venue Co app or the Mr Yum Order at Table. There is no limit to the number of guests that can attend, meaning you can have a reasonably priced catch up with any sized group of friends.

Melbourne's Happiest Hour is available from 5–6pm daily at the following 30 venues:

  • Albert Park Lake Club
  • Auburn Hotel
  • Beer DeLuxe Fed Square
