AVL Guides    Food + Drink

Your go-to guide for downtown drink specials, broken down by day of week.

Ever want to just treat yourself after a long, hard shift or day at the office (especially in the beginning of the week) but your bank account says ‘please, no’? We feel that, so we put together a hand-picked go-to guide for drink specials, broken down by day of the week in Asheville

Fun fact: We wondered why we couldn’t find any “happy hours” while putting together this list. Turns out, by regulation of the ABC, businesses can only offer happy hour specials on food items, not on drinks. Businesses are allowed to offer drink specials that run throughout the day, as long as those specials are available to everyone (i.e. no “ladies’ nights”) + don’t require patrons to buy more than one drink to get the discount (so no “buy one get one free” drinks).

Now, you’re going to want to bookmark this list for safe-keeping.
