Happy Hour: Monday - Friday 5-6:30
1/2 price bar menu

Monday: Martini Mondays - the garden, strawberry sunshine, Parkside 78, & ginger and spice are half price all night!
Wednesday: 1/2 off sparkling wine and chef’s choice oyster platter all night
Strolling down dirty sixth you wouldn’t expect to come upon a chic gastropub tucked amongst beer guzzling frat bars, but that’s where Sean Cirkiel (Olive & June) chose to park the classy Parkside. Easily one of the best Happy Hours in town, this urban-loft styled refuge fills quickly! Posh ladies and suited business types begin to flow in after work, so make sure to grab a seat at the bar early. The Parkside Specialities are all half off for happy hour. The most popular, Strawberry Sunshine, is light and refreshing, not too sweet and pleasantly effervescent. If you prefer gin, try the Parkside 78, rhubarb adds a nice tartness to rich herbal notes. Scotch drinkers must indulge in the Braveheart, our bartenders favorite! Although the beer selection isn't expansive, they offer a diverse variety so something appeals to most patrons and the best part, they’re also 1/2 price for happy hour. Don’t forget Mondays when the martinis are discounted all evening! Bubble lovers should plan a Wednesday date night or girls night out for half off sparkling wines by the glass and bottle all evening. Compliment your champagne with a Chef’s choice oyster platter, also half off all night Wednesdays, but you can enjoy the discounted price during regular happy hour when the entire bar menu is slashed in half. Where else can you enjoy a steak frites for $10? Just looking for something to counteract the stiff drinks, go for the substantial portion of fries for a mere $3 and served with a garlic aioli. Known for their outstanding raw bar, the ceviche is not to be missed and give the fried green tomatoes a try, which are served with the most delectable bacon-tomato jam.
Bartender's Tip: Try the ginger and spice, but instead of having it served up in a martini glass, request it on the rocks!
