I have told myself many times that I am going to keep a list of happy hours in town so that I don’t have to sit and rack my brain to come up with ideas. Does it ever happen? No. So, here’s my attempt to help not only myself, but also everyone, by listing some happy hour options in the Short North Arts District. Please note, this is just part 1. We’ll dive further into the neighborhood in another post!

DenmarkLemongrass Fusion Bistro boasts a double happy hour, Monday-Friday 3-7 p.m. and then again 9 p.m.-close. Their happy hour menu features special pricing on sushi, appetizers, and drinks. With the most expensive on item on the happy hour menu maxing out at $7.
