Time to Get Happy, Coral Gablers!
Why limit happy to one hour? After a hard day's work, you deserve a drink or two and here's a list of some happy hours within walking distance of Miracle Mile with great deals on drinks and food being offered for more than just one hour. Let's get started!
Bricktop's, 2418 Ponce de Leon. Bricktop's offers happy hour Mondays-Fridays from 4pm-7pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 12pm-7pm. On the menu they have $3 beers, $5-$6 wines and $6 well martinis and cocktails. They also have several appetizers available at $7 including their delicious guacamole and chips, flatbreads and sushi rolls. As an added bonus, they've got a cure for the Monday Blues; all martinis are $5 from 4pm-10pm on Mondays. Woohoo!
Swine Southern Table & Bar, 2514 Ponce de Leon. Swine's Beat the Rush Hour happy hour is Mondays-Fridays from 4pm-7pm and it's quite divine! With delectable small plates including their Swine Chicken Biscuit and Fried Green Tomatoes ranging from a minimal $4-$8 and their fantastic drink specialties like the scrumptious An Old Cuban for $6, select beers at $4 and wines at $5, Swine is my particular favorite.
Trust and Co., 2 Aragon. Trust is a new spot in the Gables and they're fitting in quite nicely. Their happy hour is Mondays-Fridays from 4pm-7pm and they offer some delectable cocktails for $7 and $9 like the 18th Hole-Fashioned as well as delicious food like their exceptional bacon and date croquetas, flatbreads and even a charcuterie board at discounted prices.

We're loving the Flemings' Prime Burger with your choice of cheese and bacon plus side of fries or onion rings which is a steal at $8 during 5pm-7pm and still a bargain at $10 from 8pm-10pm.
Bulla, 2500 Ponce de Leon Boulevard. Bulla also offers happy hour everyday day of the week with all house wines, beers and liquors at half price. Their Moscow Mule is quite tasty and a bargain at $6!
