February 14 can be a dreaded day for singles or an opportunity to spend some special time with your significant other.

But no matter whether you’re celebrating this V-Day with your partner, your best Galentines or flying solo, there’s one thing we can all agree on – it’s a great excuse to un-wine-d and go for a celebratory beverage. We’ve searched high and low to come up with the happiest of happy hours for this Valentine’s Day – see below for our top picks.

CORBETT AND CLAUDE | BRISBANE CITY

Words cannot espresso (martini) how much you are going to love these specials. Head to Corbett and Claude in the city and get your hands on some of their cocktail happy hour deals from 4 – 6pm and 9 – 11pm, including $10 Pimms cups, $11 margaritas and $12 passionfruit mojitos.

JADE BUDDHA | EAGLE STREET

What’s more romantic than spending Valentine’s Day by the Brisbane River? Spending Valentine’s Day with $10 cocktails (all day) by the Brisbane river! In addition to the Happy Hour prices from 4 – 6pm, relax and enjoy the view and get ready for some pour decisions.

MANHATTAN LINE | SOUTH BANK & BULIMBA

Prepare to be whiskeyed off your feet… This NYC inspired bar will take you to the concrete jungle where dreams are made of with their special Valentines Cocktails or happy hour from 5 – 7pm with $2 off basic spirits, beer and wine.

EAT STREET | NORTHSHORE HAMILTON

In addition to eating your feelings, Eat Street will help you get into the spirit on Valentine’s weekend, not only with their cheap spirits but also the Valentines themed cocktail for only $10. Find it at the Trawler Deck Whale Bar – sips about to go down!

MRS BROWNS BAR | NEWSTEAD

For a more low-key evening, say Chardon-heyyyy to Mrs. Brown’s Bar and Kitchen in Newstead. With happy hour going from 5 – 7pm, wine down with $11 Aperol Spritz (yasss) and cheap beer and house wine. There’s no excuse not to celebrate this brew-tiful occasion. The only question is…. which bar will you choo-choo-choose?
