National Happy Hour Day 2022
Every Happy Hour at The Winslow feels like a holiday because it gives you that respite from aggravations at work and everyday stress. That is definitely something worth celebrating with its own holiday!
National Happy Hour Day is on November 12 and there is no better way to celebrate than by spending your Happy Hour (or two or three) at The Winslow.
A Brief History of the Happy Hour
The Happy Hour is as American as apple pie. It was, in fact, started by the United States Navy as a way to boost the morale of sailors. Their events included dancing, drinking, and various types of entertainment. Quickly the term became prominent during prohibition and referred to the hour patrons would spend in the speakeasy before attending dinner in a restaurant with no alcohol.
By the late 1940s and early 1950s, restaurants and bars everywhere were advertising food and drink specials encouraging patrons to come in during “Happy Hour”. By 1960, the term was commonly used and even appeared in the “Saturday Evening Post.” helping it to gain even more popularity.
Now you can find Happy Hour on nearly every corner at any bar or restaurant. So, what makes Happy Hour and National Happy Hour Day at The Winslow so special?

What makes a great Happy Hour is great food, cheap drinks, and awesome people. The Winslow goes above and beyond in every way.
The Winslow is known for being the go-to gin bar NYC with one of the most extensive varieties of gin you will find anywhere. One thing that sets their Happy Hour apart is that they always have a gin and tonic of the day. If gin isn’t your thing, don’t worry! They also have a nice selection of draft beers, wine, and other mixed drinks, so there is something for everyone.
When it comes to food, The Winslow leaves the competition in the dust. They never water down their menu with trendy specials that miss the mark. Food at The Winslow isn’t the common bar food you might have come to expect. Here, the menu was designed by Executive Chef Nathan Pauley and the quality and creativity of the dishes reflect that. You might want to try our weekday lunch special, 12-4pm, with a Winslow Smash Burger served with kettle chips, side salad and any of our happy hour beers only for $10!
