When you live in an area that has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, it’s only natural that a lot of your favorite happy hour spots involve sitting outside and enjoying the view. However, when the cooler months roll around you start to gravitate toward spots that provide warmer (indoor) temperatures and a ‘cool’ atmosphere. So, let’s talk about some of our favorite spots to enjoy happy hour during the colder months, because let’s face it – we aren’t giving up happy hour just because it’s a little bit cold outside!

1.    Craft Bar at Grand BoulevardCraft Bar

Yep, you read that right! In case you are a little bit behind on the times, there is now a Craft Bar location at Grand Boulevard and it has become a great social spot to enjoy happy hour with friends. They have a variety of happy hour deals throughout the week!

2.    45 Central in Seaside

Have you visited this hot spot yet? This is a great little wine bar that is centrally located right in the middle of all the action in Seaside. It’s a great spot to meet friends for a drink before heading to dinner, or a place to drink wine and sample a few small plates from their delicious menu. Either way, the atmosphere is on point!
