The happy hour here knocks two bucks off each drink, but besides the low-key ambiance and comfy chairs, the real gem about this place is the Liverpool Supporters Club, which means the bar sometimes opens at a ripe 7 a.m. so you can enjoy some brews while watching soccer. Now that sounds like a good morning.
