Bardog Tavern

—Best Happy Hour Winner—

Consistency and attention to the basics makes Bardog Tavern’s happy hour an automatic, go-to spot in the minds of the Memphis drinking intelligentsia. Heavy mugs of ice-cold draft beer. A Johnny-on-the-spot wait staff. A killer kitchen. And a worn-from-love aesthetic. No bells. No whistles. Just a good time with good people in a great spot. Drink specials abound from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. But it’s Bardog’s feel that pulls people in. No matter where you’re from, Bardog feels like your local pub. This attracts Downtown office workers, government types, chefs, musicians, and more to this special spot founded by “surly local barman” Aldo Dean in 2008. Grab a beer, a cocktail, or a glass of wine and settle in. Don’t miss the Amazing Island Club sandwich with chicken, ham, bacon and a fried egg, or the Rambo with New York strip steak, roasted peppers, cheese, and horseradish cream. Too much food for happy hour? Snack on Bardog’s signature shoestring fries with bourbon mayo.   – Toby Sells
