The happiest of hours are in the early evening and usually include killer drink specials, delicious bites + of course, a beautiful atmosphere. North italia in cherry creek hits all of those notes.

I love a good happy hour, especially after a long day. While almost every restaurant + watering hole in denver offers some form of happy hour, they do not all reign supreme. One of ryan + I’s favorite places to meet up for a tasty cocktail + a snack is at north italia.

We have been visiting north for years. Their location is prime; central to the shops in cherry creek north + the mall just a couple blocks away. North’s bar is inviting + bright with multiple seating options for intimate chats or big get togethers. However, I love snagging a table in their sun-filled dining room. People watching is supreme when your sitting next to the floor-to-ceiling windows. Regardless if you want to grab a quick drink after a long day in the office or meet up for an early date night, this spot feels appropriate for any form of get together.

I would suggest ordering the chef’s board to kick things off. This tasty meat + cheese plate is beautifully presented with roasted veggies, olives, almonds and a sweet chutney. The flavor combinations are endless and great for snacking on. During happy hour you can get the chef’s board with a bottle of red or white wine for only $20. Such a steal. Another delicious snack option would be the prosciutto bruchetta. This light appetizer features the restaurant’s house-baked bread, ribbons of prosciutto + a soft cheese that balances out the chewy bread + slightly-salty ham. As far as drinks go, I am partial to north’s red sangria, it’s sooo good. On this particular visit, they made me a tasty mocktail as I was nearly 8 months pregnant. There are a few great beer options in addition to red + white wine. However, if I was in the mood for wine, I might forgo the happy hour offerings and choose an option off of the regular wines-by-the-glass menu.

Happy hour is all about enjoying a great deal + kicking off your evening on a positive note. North italia is ideal for your next happy hour because their menu has great pricing + the atmosphere is stunning. Cheers!
