Is it 5 O’Clock Yet?
After a long day at the office, nothing beats a drink with a friend at your favorite watering hole – especially when it’s happy hour! Worthington is home to a number of fantastic bars and restaurants, many of which offer great happy hour specials.
Here are four great spots you'll want to try:
In the mood for a glass of vino? Head over to House Wine. With more than 500 carefully selected labels in stock, there’s no shortage of wines to taste. They recently launched a new and improved happy hour with 25 percent off all Enomatic wine pours, like Leitz Dragonstone Riesling, a personal favorite of Donnie Austin, owner and sommelier. You’ll also receive a complimentary cheese plate with a $10 Enomatic purchase. If beer is more your style, they’re offering $2 off craft beer by the glass, flight or growler and $1 off bottled craft beer.
Happy Hour: Mon.- Fri. 2 to 6 p.m.
Best tip: Have a case of the Mondays? No worries! House Wine offers Uncork/Screw Monday. You’ll enjoy your favorite wine by the bottle with no corkage fee.
La Chatelaine French Bakery & Bistro
We recently featured La Chatelaine as a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee on your way to work, but did you know it’s also a fantastic spot for happy hour? Stop in for a $5 glass of Sonoma Valley red or white wine or an Italian Pinot Grigio and $5 French cocktails, such as Kir Royal, La Chat martini and Pastis. And don’t forget about La Chatelaine’s delicious small plates. Guests will enjoy a rotating selection of appetizers like homemade charcuterie, Pomme Frites and Salman Tartare Tartine for just $5.
Happy Hour: Mon. - Fri. 2 to 6 p.m.

The Back Room at Rivage Atlantique
Calling all seafood lovers! Rivage Atlantique boasts fresh (think flown in overnight) seafood, direct from the Atlantic Ocean. In addition to their main dining room, guests will enjoy a delicious gastropub menu in the restaurant’s bar, The Back Room. Happy hour specials include $2 off beer, wine and house liquor and $5 small plates including mussels, an oyster trio, the pizza of the day, fish tacos and their award-winning lobster roll.
