Cheers: Best Happy Hours on the Island

Happy hour is one of life’s sweetest pleasures. It’s an invitation to head to your favorite watering hole and indulge in discounted drinks and affordable appetizers while enjoying the company of fellow imbibers from all walks of life. Being the chill beach community that it is, Tybee is duly home to several establishments that offer compelling happy hour specials. If an afternoon spent barside with ever-flowing drink deals sounds like a great time to you, then head to these local spots for happy hour.
