Happy Hour returns to Indy with lots of specials

For the first time since 1985, Hoosiers will be able to enjoy Happy Hour.

Happier days are ahead. Gov. Holcomb signed House Bill 1086 into law, repealing the 40-year-old ban on discount drinks during specified hours.

Beginning Monday, July 1, Happy Hour will be legal in Indiana. The new law will also allow restaurants to sell in-house cocktails to-go. But there’s a catch: Happy Hour can’t run for more than four hours a day or 15 hours a week, and not after 10 p.m.

Restaurants and bars around Indy are definitely happy about the return of Happy Hour — and they’re not wasting any time announcing new specials.
