We’ve reached the middle point between spring and summer. We can’t promise blue skies every day but we can guarantee epic new happy hours, including these three at Local 360 in Belltown, Marine Hardware in Ballard, and Woodblock in Redmond.

Local 360 Cafe & Bar

When: 3 to 6 p.m. daily

Where: Belltown, 2234 1st Ave, local360.org

A new happy hour menu and revamped summer cocktail menu makes this Belltown haunt’s outdoor patio all the more enticing. Never mind that all of the new items in the happy hour food menu are sourced from within 360 miles of Seattle. We’re talking teriyaki tacos with seaweed salad ($3 each), corned beef tongue sliders ($4 each) and a progressive oyster happy hour that starts at 75 cents each and ends at $1.25. Hand-crafted specialty cocktails are $8, red, white and sparkling wines are $5-$6 and Local Lager 360 is only $3.60. Good times.

Marine Hardware

When: 5 to 6 p.m. Wednesday-Sundays

Where: Ballard, 4741 Ballard Ave NW, ethanstowellrestaurants.com

It’s a small window but that’s fine by us to feast on free salumi and olives with every $5 glass of rose. You heard us. Each $5 glass of rose comes with a complimentary small plate of salumi and olives. Plus, there are three roses to choose from. Plus this is Ethan Stowell’s newest restaurant (in the former Chippy’s location)and the one you’re most likely to see him actually cooking in. We desperately want to add another plus - which is that if you stay for dinner, you’ll already have a table.

Woodblock

When: 3 to 6 p.m. daily

Where: Redmond, 16175 Cleveland St., Suite 109, woodblockredmond.com

Redmond knows how to wind down in this relaxed, modern New American spot on Cleveland Street. You’ll want at least one order of the French fries ($5) dusted with garlic shallot salt and heirloom carrots ($6) pan-roasted and tossed with maple syrup and fennel seeds atop housemade ricotta and a gremolata of walnut, raisin and thyme. Better yet, split the house-smoked, pork belly-topped Woodblock burger ($10, normally $15) with your happy hour cohort and you won’t eat again until breakfast. Yum.
