When happy hour rolls around in Westchester, head to these hotspots for deals on drinks and dining with coworkers and friends.

When the work day felt like it would never end (and don’t we know it!), some genius soul invented the light at the end of the tunnel: happy hour. These are some of the happiest hours to be had across Westchester County, to bibble and sip your Excel sheet blues away. So less depresso, more espresso — martinis, that is!

Archie Grand

166B Mamaroneck Ave, White Plains; 914.861.0400

Happy Hour: Tuesday – Friday, 4-7p.m.

Flatbread pizza and flirty cocktails pepper this happy hour soiree. Enjoy $6 draft beer and $9 cocktails as you soak in the sleek glam of this unique space. Nosh on the half-priced pizza (the Brussels sprout pie is a must — just trust) and people watch the night away from the cozy booths.

The Central

300 Railroad Ave, Peekskill; 914.677.2233

Happy Hour: Tuesday – Friday, 4-7p.m.

Get a different kind of buzz after hours at this coffee-by-morning but booze-by-night shindig. Perched in the historic and revitalized Peekskill Station, The Central is your new favorite after-work hangout. Fives are wild during happy hour; take advantage of select beer, wine, or a cocktail…all for $5 a pop. With specialty drinks like The Conductor (Campari, Cabernet, A’ Siciliana aranciata soda, blood orange bitters), you might need to taste test more than one…for science.

Half Moon

1 High St, Dobbs Ferry; 914.693.4130

Happy Hour: Monday – Thursday, 3-6 p.m.; Friday, 12-3 p.m.

When trolling for a hip locale with a super-cool clientele, this Dobbs Ferry waterhole has all your necessities. With a glass-encased dining room overlooking the Hudson and a view of New York City, this modish restaurant serves top-tier pizza and features a lounge and 15-seat bar that fills up Mondays to Thursdays from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Fridays from noon to 3 p.m. with a youthful (and thirsty) multitude enjoying $2 oysters, $7 craft beers, and $10 cocktails.

Heritage 147

147 Larchmont Ave, Larchmont; 914.292.5320

Happy Hour: Tuesday – Friday, 4-6 p.m.

Frolic into this farm-to-fork menagerie of goodness for one of the most sophisticated happy hours this side of the Hudson. Start off with one of the specialty-priced beers or cocktails — the Heritage Martini, if you know what’s good for you. Nibble on foie toast: a healthy shmear of Hudson Valley foie gras, prune, cognac, saba, and kissed with EVOO. Finish the evening feeling utterly refined.

KUMO Sushi

777 White Plains Rd, Scarsdale; 914.713.8899

Happy Hour: Daily, 4-7 p.m.

The happy hour you didn’t know you needed involves spicy tuna “pizza” and $8 sake — served hot or cold, if you’re feeling frisky. Other bites include light and savory gyoza, carefully charred shishito peppers, and a salient tempura sampler. If you’re looking to do a little less rocking and a little more rolling, this happy hour offers select sushi rolls at competitive prices.

Little Drunken Chef

36 Main St, Mt. Kisco; 914.242.8800

Lunchtime Happy Hour: Monday – Friday, 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Pre-Dinner: Monday – Friday, 3-6 p.m.

Happy hour at the original location of globally-inspired Little Drunken Chef is so good, they offer it all day. Lunchtime happy hour runs from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday and again from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Before 3 p.m., sip on select cocktails, sangria, and select wines by the glass for $8. Beer is $5. During the evening happy hour, the menu is limited to sangria and beer. During both, expect tapas, tacos, guac and chips, and pita and hummus.

Maria Restaurant

11 Huguenot St, New Rochelle; 914.636.0006

Happy Hour: Monday – Friday, 3-7 p.m.

The glossy bar top at Maria is inviting enough, but, when paired with craft beer, craft cocktails, and killer bar snacks, it becomes almost impossible to walk past. Sample some not-so-typical bar bites from the mind of owner and chef Giovanni Cucullo: Mediterranean olives and pickles, cauliflower fritters, and of course a little cheese and soppressata (how ya doin’). Complement your Italian immersion with a smoked rosemary negroni. We’ll meet you there.

Saltaire Oyster Bar

55 Abendroth Ave, Port Chester; 914.939.2425

Happy Hour: Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, 4-6 p.m.
Thursday: Wine & Brine All Night Happy Hour, 4-9 p.m.
Weekends: Saturday & Sunday, 3:30–5:30 p.m.

For seafood lovers in Westchester, every hour is happy at Saltaire, but the abundance of the signature Wine & Brine offerings is enough to make anyone fall head over fin. Start your meal out with 50 percent off select oysters and a $10 Saltaire margarita. For the land lovers, crispy pork belly and short rib sliders also make their way to the abridged menu. On Wednesdays, enjoy the added treat of live music. Don’t like to be confined to hourly parameters? On Thursdays, the happy hour pricing lasts from open to close.
