The Best Happy Hour Specials at Liberty Center!

This post is sponsored by Liberty Center. All opinions are my own.

Happy Hour isn't something I partake in very often - but when I do - I try and get a little silly! The thing is - you also want to know where the goods are! Head up to Liberty Center and you won't be sorry! They have great drink specials, some delicious food and a beautiful setting - all in one place. (It's a perfect pub crawl too!) 


First up on the list is the Roosevelt Room - everywhere we went - people reminded us to hit this one up. They have HALF PRICE drinks during Happy Hour. HALF PRICE people! Also - if you've never been - it's a super swanky lounge atmosphere with a very pretty bartender (I think half the customers were there for him). 

WHEN IS IT: Monday-Friday from 4p-7p

WHERE TO FIND IT: Between Coopers Hawk & the Movie Theater on the west end of the complex


Rusty Bucket is a long time favorite spot of mine - and it's one your food stops for Happy Hour. There's no food at Roosevelt - so head here next. They have half price pizza and $5 apps but more importantly - they have the JUICY LUCY. That burger is among my top 5 in the city. Cheese, two patties, grilled onions, more cheese - it's delicious. It's only on the Happy Hour menu (but if you ask nicely - you can get it anytime). And don't forget the fried pickles - they're batter dipped spears and they are perfection! 

They have lots of drinks too! $1 off during happy hour and don't miss their drinks made with their signature fruit-infused vodkas. This is their Bucket Punch (which is on tap it's so popular) made with Mount Gay Rum, pineapple-infused Finlandia, Cointreau, Orgeat and fresh juices. I don't know what half that stuff is but it tastes fantastic! 

WHEN IS IT: Monday-Friday from 3p-6p

WHERE TO FIND IT: Just East of the Movie Theater on the west end of the complex


Next up - if you're looking for a relaxed patio setting - Bar Del Mar is your spot! They have live music Tuesday, Friday and Saturday along with giant board games like Jenga and Connect Four as well as comfy furniture on the patio. It's like you just hit a beach bar without leaving Ohio! Rachel and I tried their Tropical Cosmo which is only $5 during Happy Hour. They have a variety of bar bites and cocktails - all $5! 

WHERE TO FIND IT: On Foundry Row near the Indoor Mall attached to Brio.


I've been to Lotus Pad before and knew that I had to stop there as well - it's one of my favorite restaurants at Liberty Center! But they also have Happy Hour specials! Half price beer, half price mules (Above: Bangkok Mule with coconut rum, ginger beer & lime juice, Guava Mule with vodka, guava juice, ginger beer & lime), $10 off bottles of wine and half price apps. 

In addition to the great drinks, the food is fantastic. One of the half-price apps we tried was the Bangkok Fries which are Penn Station-ish fries topped with hoisin, sriracha, garlic aioli, peanut and cilantro. Kick it up a notch and add the pork larp from the lettuce wraps (holy crap - my favorite!) 

Side note: They've let this recent smash of nice weather get to them and are extending Happy Hour specials to all day, every day until Memorial Day. Go now! 

WHEN IS IT: Monday-Friday from 4p-6p

WHERE TO FIND IT: Across the courtyard from the Movie Theater on the West end. 


Cheesecake Factory isn't the first place you might think of - but they have specials too! You can get $5.95 drinks & appetizers - which works for me. Or you can just stop by and grab a piece of cheesecake to go like I did! 

WHEN IS IT: Monday-Friday from 4p-6p

WHERE TO FIND IT: Across from the parking lot at the front of the mall when you pull in. 


Last up on our hit list was Pies & Pints - it was on our way to our car back at the front - so why not! They have $1 off pints/wines and $2 off apps for Happy Hour. We stopped by for a sweet treat with this Raspberry Berliner Weisse and it was TASTY! I've heard amazing things about their wings too but I was full and had to get home to watch Real Housewives! 

WHEN IS IT: Monday-Friday from 3p-6p

WHERE TO FIND IT: Next to Cheesecake Factory and the turnaround for the Indoor Mall entrance

You can't go wrong with Happy Hour at Liberty Center. We didn't even get to every place - Kona Grill and Coopers Hawk will just have to wait for next time! Enjoy and always remember to drink responsibly. 


  1. It looks like you had a fun (and delicious) time! The drinks look awesome but, seriously, can we talk about that food? Omgosh, that's my kind of happy hour!

    1. We did have a good time! But how can you not with all that good food and drink?
