You want to know one of my favorite characteristics in a happy hour? No time limit. That’s why I’m a big big fan of $5 martinis, all day and all night on Fridays at Park Lane in Hampton.
The martini menu hosts a good variety, and all the martinis we tried were good. I personally will be staying loyal to the Smores-Tini: whipped cream vodka and white crème de cacao. Yum! Not only do I find it to be the tastiest, but it also unarguably wins best in show. Look at that chocolate swirl! It even has marshmallows and a graham cracker crust. If you’re a peach lover, the Bellini-Tini is also worth trying.
Disclaimer: If you want to take advantage of this deal, be prepared to wait for it. My friends and I went around 7, and it was about a 40-minute wait. It took around 20 minutes before we were even able to grab seats in the waiting area. The good news is we were able to order our first round of martinis at the bar and sip them as we waited.
Once seated, we ordered their Fried Brie & Fruit appetizer for the table. I love brie, but it left something to be desired. We ended up asking for a baguette and turned it into a spread. I’ll stick to mozzarella for my deep fry fix.
For dinner, I got their $10 rotating “Panini of the Day”, which that day was Turkey, Cranberry, and Goat Cheese on a baguette. Who knew Thanksgiving tasted so good in the middle of Summer? It came with chips, which I opted to swap for a Caesar Salad for just $1. The meal was delicious, nicely sized, and one of the more affordable entrees on the menu, so I’ll definitely check the daily Panini again on my next visit.
