If you're on a budget, a John Besh restaurant probably isn't the first dining option that springs to mind but here's a little secret: a few Besh restaurants have insanely good happy hours. From 3pm to 6pm on weekdays, raw oysters are shucked right behind the bar at Lüke for just ¢50 and all speciality cocktails are half price, including the large, frothy rendition of The French 75, making this business district bistro a favourite afternoon haunt for many an office worker and lady of leisure. Not a fan of bivalves? Another John Besh restaurant, Domenica, does half-price wood-fired pizzas for happy hour, too.
