What's better than drinking at one of Melbourne's best bars, you bewilderedly ask? Drinking at one of Melbourne's best bars, at Happy Hour prices!

Since the 1920's, the hours immediately following the traditional working day has been referred to as 'Happy Hour', for blatantly obvious reasons – 1. Work is finished for the day, and 2. It is now socially acceptable to consume alcohol.

Nowadays, 'Happy Hour' is interpreted in countless different ways, by oodles of Melbourne bars, making it hard to know where to head and when to head there to get the best Happy Hour deals available. So we've done our research (and endured many a mid-week hangover to do so! #toughlyf) to bring you The Urban List's bible to the absolute best bars for Happy Hours in Melbourne.
