Happy Hour in Guilford, CT

The sun’s going down earlier, the air is crisp, and the evenings are getting colder – fall is heading into winter. But it’s sweater weather doesn’t mean you must rush home to snuggle up by the fire and hibernate.

Beat the winter blues with Happy Hour in Guilford with cozy drinks, hot entertainment, and delicious apps and dinners with friends or coworkers.

Spectacular Drinks with Even Better Views

Whether you’re catching up with friends or spending some time unwinding with coworkers after a long work week, Happy Hour in Guilford at Chapter One Food & Drink is where the fun begins.

Chapter One Food & Drink offers Happy Hour specials most days of the week, complete with food specials and hand-crafted cocktails. Sample the season’s tastes with cocktails like the Caramel Apple Butter Martini, a mix of Four Roses Bourbon with apple butter and caramel syrup, or the Apple Moscow Mule, a blend of Tito’s Vodka with apple cider and lemon juice.

Better yet, share some Fig Punch with Black Fig Vodka, house-made mango puree, peach schnapps, and pineapple juice.

Is a signature drink more your speed? Our signature cocktails and classic drinks blend the same fresh ingredients and creativity as our food. Try the refreshing Lavender Fresh with Empress gin, fresh lemon juice, and house-made lavender simple syrup, or get a pick-me-up with an Espresso Martini with Stoli Vanilla Vodka, Lavazza espresso with Kahlua, and a splash of Bailey’s.

Cocktails and Entertainment to Start the Night

Some people enjoy a happy hour to unwind after the workday. But for others, the night’s just getting started.

With Guilford nightlife, you’re spoiled for choice. This tranquil village is close to several exciting nightclubs, including the flashy Club Vandome to the trendy Club Napoli. You could also see comedy shows at Mohegan Sun Casino or try your luck with the slots.

If you’d rather stay close, Chapter One has all the necessary entertainment. There’s always something on, from acoustic duos to DJ entertainment.

Beer and Wine

There’s much more to our Happy Hour in Guilford than craft cocktails. Our Guilford location has a full wine list and both bottled and draft beer, including Allagash White, Yuengling, and Thimble Island Lager.

If you’re having a night out with the girls, choose from sparkling, red, rose, and white wines by the glass or bottle. Some of our favorites include Segura Viudas, a Spanish sparkling rose with hints of green apple, pear, and lemon, and the crisp, William Wyclif champagne from California.

You’ll have plenty of reds to choose from, including pinot noir from California, Bordeaux from France, and malbec from Argentina.

From Appetizers to Specialty Dinners

While you’re having some drinks, sample our best appetizers and raw bar options, such as shrimp cocktails and oysters. Our appetizers are shareable, but we wouldn’t blame you for keeping dishes like Bacon Wrapped Scallops or Four Cheese Baked Mac all to yourself.

If you want to sit down to dinner, our Guilford restaurant has a range of options for every palate. Scallop Risotto, Salmon Piccata, and Grilled Swordfish Steak offer the best of the local catch. Try the Lobster Roll, Chapter One Burger, or Vegetarian Fried Rice for smaller bites.

At Chapter One, we want everyone to have an enjoyable experience during Happy Hour. If you have dietary restrictions, let us know! We’ll be happy to accommodate you as much as possible or suggest excellent alternatives.
