St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, and there’s no doubt you are searching for the best happy hour in Austin to celebrate with drinks and delicious food. Try something different this year – skip the ordinary Irish pubs and celebrate during happy hour at Austin’s award-winning Thai restaurant, Sway! Sway’s Thai happy hour adds some spice and elegance to the popular Austin activity of grabbing drinks and food after work, and St. Patrick’s Day will be no exception. Dine and drink with your friends at communal tables or enjoy breathtaking views of the Austin skyline, all while you are surrounded by the aroma and flavors of exceptional Thai cuisine.
HALF OFF UNIQUE SPECIALTY COCKTAILS
During happy hour at Sway, diners get half off all alcoholic drinks, including specialty cocktails, beer, wine, and sake. Forget the green beer this St. Patrick’s Day and try a classy Monk Water cocktail instead, with fresh ingredients like lime, watermelon, mint, and cilantro mixed with your choice of vodka. If you decide that it’s not St. Patrick’s Day without beer, you can choose from a wide variety of Thai, Japanese, and local Austin beers – also half off during this Thai happy hour, of course! For an especially unique drinking experience, try Thai jelly beer. Bottles of Singha beer are kept in a barrel with ice, water, and salt, so that it stays cold, but doesn’t freeze. Your server then knocks on the bottle, and the liquid beer turns to a refreshing, icy slush – which you can drink up with a straw.
$3 GOURMET THAI SNACKS
On top of drink specials, Sway offers bar snacks for $3 a piece during their classy Thai happy hour. Here, you can get delicious, original, modern Thai snacks that you can’t get anywhere else. This isn’t ordinary bar food – try the Blue Prawn Satay with den miso and bull’s blood, or the Pork Sirloin Satay with toasted peanut and cilantro. Even desserts are included in Sway’s happy hour menu, like the Mexican-influenced Thai Tres Leches Popsicle with Chinese 5 spice. Of course, if the mouth-watering snacks get your appetite going, you can order off the main menu, where you’ll find both traditional Thai dishes like Pad Thai as well more modern entreés like the Jungle Curry with Black Angus brisket.
