Cinq à Sept Happy Hours

Multiple locations from March 5th-11th

Once the workday is done, head straight to one of these elevated happy hours based on the French concept of the “cinq à sept”—5 to 7 pm, the playful hours between work and family life.

Three cocktail-forward locations–Brass Fish Tavern in the Financial District, Yaletown’s Stock Room Cocktail Bar, and Clough Club in Gastown–will offer Cinq à Sept social hours with feature pricing on cocktails and spirits. The offerings range from Tromba Tequila creations at Stock Room to amazing selections of classics at Clough Club and Brass FIsh. They’re a perfect way to unwind after the 9-to-5 and wind up for the evening ahead.
