You may not typically equate happy hour with date night but after a long day a meet up with your favorite date may be just what you both need. The right spot can even turn a happy hour meet up into the beginnings of a romantic evening out! Located in the heart of the bustling seaport district, Committee is the perfect setting for a happy hour date.
There is something about evening cocktails and shared plate dining that always makes for great dates and Committee serves up the perfect spot for this experience. They also have an amazing street side patio for warmer weather dining. Patio dining in the seaport comes with the bonus of an evening breeze of salty ocean air off the harbor adding to the atmosphere outside. Committee is aptly named as the set up here just gives off that feeling of coming together and gathering in a favorite spot. The inventive maze plates and unique libations keep the conversations flowing. So grab your favorite date and try out a happy hour together here!
The cocktails at Committee are fun. There is also a nice Greek beer and wine list here. They offer flights of Ouzo, a Greek appertif drink, (taste of three for $12) or of Spirits of Greece (taste of three for $16) which is a perfect way to begin your night. They always have rotating cocktail specials and seasonal specials. Some favorites to try out (for the names as much as the refreshement!) are the #ginstafamous (tellicherry pepper infused Gin Lane, lemon, basil, and guava), the Tropic Like It’s Hot (Flor de Cana, white rum, papaya, coconut, and lime) or the Fresh Outta Fresno (tequila, sweet vermouth, Fresno jalapeno-Aleppo syrup, passion syrup and lime).
The shareable meze plates make for a delicious and more intimate happy hour date. Order a bunch and sample away! Some of our favorites were the Feta (sesame encrusted with greek honey), Mushroom Pie, Kalamboki (sautéed corn with kalamata olive butter and shaved graviera), Greek Ceviche, Calamari, and Keftedakia (chicken meatballs with smoked honey and warm hummus). The desserts here are also incredible and sharing one or two is an absolute must. The Baklava Cheesecake is still on our minds!
Committee earns an A+ for the right setting, food, and drinks for the perfect happy hour date!
