Sit back, relax and unwind with us at Happy Hour every Thursday and Friday afternoon, 3pm – 6pm.

Stop by at the end of a long work day or after school pickup and let the kids run free on our playground while you make the most of our half priced seasonal wines and house beer.

Our happy hour may be our best kept secret yet.
