During the most trying of workdays, dreaming of an impending happy hour is all that keeps us toiling along. But sometimes the idea of heading to a crowded bar where you'll inevitably have to battle for the bartender's attention makes you want to act out that printer-smashing scene from Office Space. Some days you don't want to be sardined with 100 of your soon-to-be-closest friends against some super-posh, sustainable piece of reclaimed wood. Some days you just want to drink your glass of rosé in peace. On those days, you can find respite at Salumeria's new Bryant Street location.
From 4 to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, the Potrero sandwich spot offers a refreshingly simple happy hour: $4 draft beers (the one exception is a $6 pint of Achouffe Brewery's La Chouffe Golden Ale), $2 cans of Hamms, and $5 glasses of wine (the selections a mix of Californian and Italian).
Housed in the converted Hamm's building, Salumeria shares the space with a variety of offices. On any given weeknight, you'll find yourself with a mix of 9-5ers casually lingering over a drink in the vastly open space.
The food is not discounted, but the full menu is available until closing. We can never seem to leave without a cheese or salumi board... or after those really rough work days, both.
Salumeria, 1550 Bryant St.
