Looking for another after work hangout this week? After the office, head to one of these hot spots to sip on new happy hour cocktails and tasty bar bites.

The Midtown newbie Bocce Bar hosts its Aperitivo Hour daily from 4 PM-7 PM with various $6 cocktail deals: aged negroni with gin and aperol spritzs. Guests won’t go hungry either with the exclusive happy hour food menu of items like gnocco fritto ($11) with pickled mushroom and seafood salad ($12) mixed with octopus and shrimp (786-245-6211).

Head south to the Coral Gable’s staple steakhouse Christy's Restaurant to enjoy its Bubbles & Bites happy hour January 9. From 6:00 PM-7:30 PM, you’ll not only enjoy live jazz in the piano bar but will be able to try a few select champagnes complemented by several appetizers made specially for the evening. The cost is $25 per person (305-446-1400).
