For the office crowd, happy hour is an easy win after work, and Seattle's dining scene certainly embraces the trend. But in this early-to-bed city, late-night happy hours are often a restaurant's best-kept secret. They're a second chance to sample what a restaurant has on tap and indulge without breaking the bank.

Whether it's for a quick bite or drink during a night on the town, an economical way to sneak in a late dinner, or a shift drink after clocking out, these happy hours offer a variety of choices and do not skimp on flavor.

If you're looking for the early bird specials, check out the Happy Hour Heatmap or the Essential Happy Hour Map instead.
