Best Local Happy Hour

Mai Thai

Readers' Picks

Boise's downtown Thai destination has long been lauded as one of the best restaurants in town, but more recently it has been gaining acclaim for its liquid refreshments. When it comes to a little quitting-time tipple, you can't go wrong with Mai Thai's happy hour. First things first, it's two-for-one on all drinks from the bar, including Mai Thai's slate of featured cocktails (Zocalo Milk Punch anyone?). Second, Mai Thai is very liberal about that whole "hour" thing--the happiness flows from 5-6:30 p.m. and 9-10 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 5-6:30 p.m. and 9:30-10:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday and 5-9:30 p.m. on Sunday. Third, the restaurant has started offering Japanese-fusion small-plate appetizers called izakaya from 5 p.m.-close, Monday-Saturday. We'll give you one guess where we'll be after work.
