Hello, happy hour!

Some of the best happy hours in the East Village, downtown, and Des Moines West.

Akebono515: 4 for $4 starting at 4:00. Wine. Cocktails. Beer. Appetizers. Bartenders sometime serve up complimentary sake bombs. [215 10 St.: patio]

Americana: Mon-Fri 3-6:00. $6 apps, refreshing beverages from $2-$5. Great view of the Pappajohn Sculpture Park. [1312 Locust]

D’jango: Mon-Fri 4-6:00 $1.50 oysters and shrimp, $10 cheese and charcuterie plates, $5 specialty cocktails, champagne and martinis. Tuesday: happy hour all night long. All night. All night. [210 10 St.]

Eatery/A: Tues-Sun 3-6:00 half-priced wine, draws and wood-fired pizza. Try the Budino dessert. You’ll thank me. [2932 Ingersoll: patio]

Irina’s: Mon-Sun 3-6:00 half-priced apps. Ask for a Russian shot: Whiff a piece of rye bread, slam a vodka shot, eat a pickle. Not on special yet always special. [2301 Rocklyn Dr.]

Lime Lounge: Two Martini Tuesday means two mouthwatering martinis for $10; One Dollar Wednesday means drinks for a dollar. Ask for Michelle, voted Cityview’s Best Bartender. [435 E. Grand: patio]

Louie’s Wine Dive: Mon-Fri 4-6:00 $6 wine by the glass, $6 house made punches, $5 flatbread selection and BLT deviled eggs. If they run out of your brand of beer they’ll pick it up at the HyVee. True story. [4040 University: patio]

The Continental: Mon-Thurs half-priced tapas menu, $5 hand crafted sangria, $2 PBR and a weekly $6 drink special. An East Village gem with a loft vibe. [428 East Locust: patio]
