Newport Beach is home to some of the best beach front drinking and dining in all of SoCal, and it’s just a quick ride from our locale in Irvine. Catch a sunset and a great deal at these happy hour spots in Newport Beach, cheers!

The Winery Restaurant Wine & Bar

If you’re going to do happy hour, why not have an entire winery at your fingertips?  The Winery specializes of course! And the best part is, you’ll get your wine served with a side of a view.  The Winery looks out over the beautiful Newport Bay, watch Newport locals sail into the bay at sunset while you sip on some top notch wine.  Oh and that all day Sunday happy hour? Sunday Funday it is!

Happy Hour: Monday-Friday 4-6:30, Sunday 2pm-9:30 pm.

3Thirty3 Waterfront

The name just about says it all.  The views here are incredible, and the ambiance is casual yet elegant.  It’s the perfect place to pamper yourself after work with an adult bevvy and a killer sunset.  You can count on 3Thirty3 every  for a lovely happy hour at the Newport Bay.

Happy Hour: Monday-Friday 3-6pm


The Alley

The Alley is having happy hour all night every night…so we’re not quite sure you can call it happy hour, but it’s definitely a spot worthy of your sunset-and-cocktail attention.  They are super dog friendly and have an awesome patio where you can share a sunset with your best four-legged friend.  We don’t recommend sharing human drinks with your pup, but he won’t have to miss out on the fun because The Alley offers a dog menu, and that’s precisely how you know they’re awesome.  They have a different drink and food special each night of the week so be sure to check their Daily Specials page for up-to-date info!


Woody’s Wharf

If you prefer your sunset with a bit of history, Woody’s Wharf is named after the fisherman who used to operate his fishing business out of the current property.  The restaurant and bar opened in 1965 and was an overnight success, with packed crowds returning every weekend for live music and great eats.  Today, patrons will enjoy laid back vibes and gorgeous ocean views.  It’s the perfect place to pop in for a little post-work R&R.

Happy Hour: Monday-Friday 3-6pm

Next time it’s 4pm and you’re ready ditch the office for a cold drink and a candy-colored sunset, you have plenty of fish (or bars rather) in the sea to choose from!  May your happy hours be that much happier!
