We'll take any sort of discount on this massive pretzel that demands being shared (but we can't blame you if you don't). Held Monday through Friday from 3 to 7 p.m., the happy hour at Frank is still relatively new, but will make for great people watching on the white benches that sit in front of the church. Stop in for $2 Coors, Hamm's, Lone Star, Modelo Especial, Pearl, PBR, Schlitz and Tecate, along with $3 select craft beer and $5 Fernet, Jameson, house-infused banana Jameson, gimlets, daqs (this is Slam Antonio, afterall), Old Fashioneds and Negronis. Don't forget to order bites such as the giant pretzel ($8), sausage boards ($10), hummus plates ($4), queso fries ($4) and German potato salad ($3).

What's not to love about rooftop concerts, a fun view of Downtown that really does rival that of Paramour's and potent drinks. Held 4 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday with $2.50 (deceptively strong) frozen margaritas, $2.75 canned beers and $3.50 well liquor drinks, this happy hour will help you forget any work-related stress. Bonus: the same specials are offered Monday through Wednesday from 9 to 11 p.m.

This one's not for the faint of heart. Pro-happy-hour-goers can imbibe moonshine-filled libations from 3 to 6 p.m. and 9 to close daily. You read that right. And they really don't mess around with the specials — $5 Five-Degree infused shots (chilled in massive ice blocks), $3 off specialty cocktails, $3 20-ounce domestic drafts, $4 20-ounce premium drafts, $2 off wine by the glasas and finally, $4 Illegal Endeavors, an explosive combination of moonshine margarita and moonshine sangria topped with a blueberry moonshine floater.
