Philly's Best Happy Hours: Double Knot

Welcome to Philly’s Best Happy Hours, a feature highlighting great happy hours in different neighborhoods throughout Philadelphia. Since Drink Philly started out as a place to find happy hours in the city, we thought it was only right to return to our roots and turn the spotlight on some of Philly’s absolute best happy hour deals.

In this installment, we’re covering Michael Schulson’s acclaimed izakaya Double Knot (where we recently had the chance to interview head bartender Jefferson Oatts). Situated right next door to Sampan, another Schulson Collective restaurant, Double Knot’s all-day cafe model has been an enormous hit in Midtown Village, with coffee and lunch served throughout the day, a bustling upstairs bar in the evenings, and a dimly-lit, sultry dining room downstairs that serves full dinners of omakase, izakaya, sushi, and more.
 
 
Their happy hour, which runs every single day of the week from 4 PM - 7 PM at the upstairs bar only, has some of the best deals in the city — particularly when it comes to their food — and features $4 house wines, beer, sake, and a featured cocktail of the day. In addition to those drink deals, you can also score several $9 cocktails, including:
 
Double Knot Punch
Varies regularly
 
Two Lovers Knot
Vodka, yuzu, cucumber, cherry blossom, bubbles
 
 
Sailor’s Hitch
Cachaca, Japanese plum cordial, charred lime
 
Jungle Bird Slip
Reposado tequila, strawberry cordial, Campari, lime, mezcal
 
Monkey’s Fist
Sake, coconut, pineapple syrup, lime, chili
 
 
According to the Schulson Collective, “the happy hour at Double Knot is the perfect beginning to your evening at Double Knot. They serve a wide array of dumplings, bao buns, robotayaki, sushi, and cocktails. This is certainly one of the best happy hours in the city.” If you thought the cocktail specials were good, the food ones may be even better, with delicious bites at incredible prices such as:
 
Rolls & Handrolls ($4)
Salmon Avocado
Shrimp Tempura
Cucumber Avocado

Robatayaki ($3)
