The Hidden Gem of Chicago for Happy Hour Zed451 and Why We All Need Happy Hour in our Life. Cheers to that :)!
I recently stumbled upon the rooftop bar of Zed451 and fell in love with it’s space and cocktails. Talk about a hidden gem that is perfect for after work or date night. And one of the best parts that I never knew before either; hello happy hour specials! Seriously, what better deal than this?!

I’m headed there with some friends tonight for happy hour and it made me think about how much happy hour is needed in everyone’s life. What better way to celebrate mid-week than ending a little earlier and having 1-2 drinks with some friends? Do you do it often? I certainly don’t and it got me thinking . . .
Happy hour is needed in all our lives! There’s no stress in just two hours; you can casually drink a glass and head home (although one drink is not enough for me :), and it gives that relaxation break you need before the night starts or if you have kids like me, before I have to make dinner and put them to bed. It’s the perfect catch up between friends or your significant other. Quick date night before heading home to the kids. Another great excuse, I don’t drink often at lunch because I have to go back to work, so happy hour is the perfect solution!
I loved all the little spots at Zed451’s rooftop and the drinks are super delicious. This year, Zed415 celebrates it’s 10 year anniversary in Chicago. Cheers to them and I love that their head executive Chef is Andrea Williams (lady boss, yes)!
This summer is passing by all too fast. I mean August already? I barely even hit all the rooftops I needed to and haven’t even been on a boat (which was on my to-do list)! I’m excited for happy hour tonight. And I decided to add it to my to-do list more often . . .

If you are busy, single, a busy working mom or busy full time mom, give yourself that break you need. Take that one day, book a massage, get your hair blown out and head to happy hour with your best friend or surprise your significant other with a meet up at 4:00pm. You won’t regret it. There’s a reason why it is called Happy Hour. Cheers to you!
