We rounded up some of the happiest happy hours right now but with a special emphasis on their amazing bar nibbles. This summer is the best time to party for avid foodies and cocktail addicts, here are the best places to enjoy your happiest hours of the day.  LILYA
There's a new happy hour in LILYA featuring Moroccan music, exotic nibbles and a special buy-one-get-one-free promotion on their signature cocktails, house reds, whites and beers. The happy hour is available from Sunday to Wednesday from 6-8pm and along with their Happy Moroccan Hours they will also have their heavenly small plates with choices of 4 different salads at HK$148 or 6 for HK$218, and 4 briouats for HK$288. Their salads are to die for, ask for their bread to come with it. For cocktails, we recommend the Bazaar with house-infused tito’s verbena, limoncillo, fresh apple juice and honey. Its delectably honey notes and mellow apple base (that is sweet but not overwhelmingly) makes this tipple dangerously easy to drink. For small plates, the spinach with confit lemon sauce and slawi olives and the cheese briouats are absolute must-haves. 2/F, 77 Wyndham Street, Central, 2526 2578; Curry
Your favourite curry spot is doing a happy hour for fried chicken wing fanatics all over. Each day from 4-7pm, you can enjoy unlimited Suntory draft beer and fried chicken wings for only HK$90.  This happy hour promotion only applies to their causeway bay location so when those fried chicken cravings hit you on one of these slow summer afternoons, you know where to go. (They also have an amazing spicy chicken wing challenge, and as you know, we in WOM love food challenges.) G/F, 14 Pennington St, Causeway Bay, 2511 1051;
Japanese-Peruvian Nikkei restaurant Tokyolima is doing some exciting happy hours from 5-7pm every day. All sake, cocktails, wines, beers and spirits start at HK$48 including their Sake Martini with orange blossom water (HK$48). The most exciting part is the food: all of Tokyolima’s Nikkei bar bites are priced at HK$48 per dish in portions perfect for sharing. If you’ve been craving some of their extra special “Ki-mo-chi” fried chicken or their Pan Con Chicharron crispy pork belly buns, 5-7pm is the time to go.
