All I really need in this life are cheap booze, really cheap, brick oven pizza and a stunning view of Fountain Square. Which is why (minus the drunk woman next to me who was semi-belligerent and perfumed with garlic) my last visit to Palomino happy hour was perfect.
I think this place is one of downtown’s best values. For a few bucks, you get a lot of different options. And here they are:
Drink specials are $4
Candied Apple Drop, Cranberry Mojito, Pomegranate Margarita, Sycamore Lane Cabernet Sauvignon, Sycamore Lane Chardonnay and all draft beer.
Brick oven pizzas are $5
Prosciutto and roma tomato, Incredible pepperoni, Sausage and roasted mushrooms, Roma tomato and basil, Rotisserie chicken
Appetizer specials range from $4.50 – $7.50
Taleggio and Cambozola Fondue, Brick Oven Roasted Cambozola, Pistachio Crusted Double Creme Brie, Calamari Fritto, Brick Oven Roasted Clams, Potatoes Gorgonzola, Hot Red King Crab and Artichoke Dip, Brick Oven Roasted Mussels, Grilled Wild Mushroom Salad
Did I mention that happy hour is all day, every day in the bar?
Palomino is on 505 Vine Street and, so far, it’s my favorite happy hour. What’s yours?
