Nearly a year after it opened, Royal Boucherie is kicking off its first-ever happy hour program.

Starting tonight, Monday, October 29th, Nick Elmi’s dark, cozy Old City spot will serve deals on beer, wine, select cocktails, and bar bites on weeknights.

Happy hour specials include $4 draft beers, $7 glasses of draft prosecco and Loire Valley red and white wines, and $7 Bartender’s Choice cocktails — just choose your booze and the folks behind the bar will whip up something delicious.

Food-wise, they’re offering some half-priced snacks from the bar menu, like chicken liver toasts for $5, steamed Prince Edward Island mussels for $5, crispy-fried tempura squash with caramelized honey and soy for $5, and those ridiculously good pork-stuffed fried olives for $3.50.

Lead bartender Zeq Rudy is also rolling out some new autumn drinks on the bar’s regular menu tonight: there’s the Cocktail a la Philly (that’s rye, Benedictine, carpano, Peychaud’s bitters, and Pernod absinthe), a Bourbon Sour with Wild Turkey, Pierre Ferrand dry curaçao, lemon juice, egg white and simple syrup, and the Pennsyltucky, a combination of lemon-infused white whiskey, génépy, lemon juice and honey syrup, spiked with Ploughman Cider.

Hit up Royal Boucherie for happy hour Monday through Friday from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m.
