Top 5 Happy Hours in Vacaville

Happy Hour (n) - a cocktail hour or longer period at a bar, during which drinks are served at reduced prices or with free snacks. In the 1920s, “happy hour” was a casual Navy term for the scheduled period of entertainment on-ship (usually drinking was involved). During the prohibition era, civilians held “cocktail hours” at speakeasies before they would go out to dinner. This tradition of dining on inexpensive drinks and appetizers has evolved into a fun way for co-workers to blow off steam after work usually between the hours of 4-7pm.

In Vacaville, there are a ton of great happy hours. I picked 5 local hot spots at random that know the meaning of Happy Hour.
