At least once a week my co-workers and I have a happy hour at a local bar or restaurant. No one had been to AquaTerra yet, so we gave it a shot. From our happy hour experience, I can comment on the following: bar scene, drinks, appetizers, and pricing. I can not comment on the entrees, sorry!
As for the bar scene: The clean, bright, wide open bar was welcoming to my four co-workers and I. We were not squished for space, and we weren’t completely isolated from everyone else at the bar. Other groups seemed to have the same idea as us: a few drinks with co-workers before going home (we noticed a lot of business-casual types like us). It was not loud (I HATE loud bars) and we were able to have a normal conversation without yelling to each other.
Drinks: The bartenders were very quick to make our drinks. They were also very attentive and readily available when we needed another drink (or two! haha). We all had various drinks (wine, martinis, cocktails), but everyone was pleased. One co-worker had a berry-tini (I think that is what it’s called), and she is said it was very sweet, but she liked it so much she had another one ha! I am somewhat of a drink snob and only order the “good stuff.” From what I could see, the bar had everything I normally drink, and then a TON of alternatives which was nice to see :-) .
Appetizers: we all shared four appetizers: pizza, crab dip, zucchini chips, and nachos. The portions were large because the five of us couldn’t even finish everything!!
Pricing: For the quick service at the bar, the great appetizers, and cool bar atmosphere, we feel that we had underpaid at the end of the happy hour. Everything was moderately priced and we were all very pleased when we divided up the check. We all joked that we should have had another round of drinks to make the bill more like our other happy hour spots!
My co-workers and I agreed this was a top choice for our future happy hours. We are going to tell others at work about it, too. Cool bar atmosphere and quality drinks and appetizers all at an afordable price. I am excited to go back!
