Summer is happy hour season. View Restaurant at Calhoun Beach Club is just one more fabulous Twin Cities restaurant serving up some pretty fancy happy hour specials. And friends, this one comes with a view of Lake Calhoun.

Happy hour specials include $3.50 wines, cocktails and taps, $5 martinis and specialty drinks and appetizers ranging in price from $2.50 to $4.50. Specials are good from 3 to 6:30 p.m. and 10 to 11 p.m. on weekdays and 10 to midnight on weekends.

While happy hour is the feature of this post, frankly, their lunch, brunch and dinner menus are enticing as well. Yum! The View offers free valet after 6 p.m.
