This roundup focuses on our East Bay happy hour picks. For our favorite SF picks, see our feature on Top SF happy hour spots.

Two words that ring like magic: Happy Hour. Everyone wants to unwind from a long day at work, but you don’t want to break the bank that you’ve spent all day trying to bolster. Cocktails, craft beers and small bites at friendly prices pretty much lure herds of decompressing locals to happy hours every day of the week.

From larger beer garden crowds for group carousing to intimate nooks for quiet conversations, there’s a fitting spot to meet your post-work preference. Feel like a baller but adhere to your budget at the following East Bay happy hours a short stumble from BART.
