We have been wanting to visit Fainting Goat for happy hour for a long time. Although T has been for a brunch (and loved the mango mimosas), this was E’s first time at the restaurant, and T’s first time for happy hour.
The vibe of Fainting Goat is perfect for a casually cute happy hour. The bar is lovely, long, and there is plenty of seating in the bar area to enjoy happy hour. Plus, at 530 it was barely busy.
Happy hour is a great way to try out a new, slightly pricey restaurant to see if you like it before committing to a full meal. Unfortunately, Fainting Goat does not offer food specials during happy hour but there are a few bar bites you can score that are under $15, if you’re feeling peckish or want to try out some of their apps.
Besides that, their happy hour menu is a little different than most places. It isn’t a “set” happy hour menu, and it changes every day what the special is. However, they always offer one white wine, one red wine, one prosecco, and one beer. Although this might seem a bit strange, I quite enjoy it because it means every time you go for happy hour you get the chance to try something new. However, it also means there is no hard alcohol on happy hour.
One of our friends did decide to be ~wild~ and get a cocktail off the menu. It was a gin drink and particularly light and airy, which was great for the slightly humid day. It also came in the cutest glass.
Overall, we thought this was the perfect place for a lowkey yet slightly upscale happy hour.
