We loved Porta Via the last time we went, so we decided to take a trip back and see how Porta Via’s Bar Room stacked up for a Healthy Happy Hour.

Here’s the Deal

Happy Hour:  Monday-Saturday 5 p.m.-8 p.m, $6 specialty cocktails and wines, $4 beers and 1/2 off the food on the  bar menu.

This is a “Secret” happy hour because  the bartender told us the owner will never print a menu with the rock bottom low prices.

What to drink: Generous Absolut martinis for $6, a good Pinot Grigio and a good Cabernet are also both $6 each.

What to eat: For a healthier take on happy hour at Porta Via, order the arugula salad off the regular menu and for your protein order the ceviche,  steak skewers or both from the Happy Hour menu. It’s fun to mix the protein with the salad.

Bartenders to meet: This time we met Nicole, who recognized us from her other job at Saddle Ranch. She works there part time and loved the idea of the Healthy Happy Hour.

Parking: It’s pretty easy to find parking spots along Bedford and around the corner on Crescent at the meters.  However, if all else fails on Crescent just south of Brighton park in the lot behind Caffe Roma for $6
