Beat the Heat This Summer with an Italian Happy Hour

If you're like most residents of Austin, you're looking forward to plenty of summer fun this year. With its proximity to Texas Hill Country and other opportunities to enjoy outdoor activity, Austin is a paradise for nature lovers. However, summer often brings excess heat, and there are times when the occasion calls for a retreat to a place that offers a cool, refreshing respite from soaring temperatures. The Italians are masters at beating the heat, so when the dog days of summer have you sweltering, sweating, and longing for relief, it's time to cool off with an Italian happy hour.

Italian Traditions From Tuscany to Texas

A traditional trattoria is a family-owned and operated food and beverage establishment with a focus on cultivating ongoing relationships with customers. Texas and Tuscany both excel in authentic old-school hospitality, and with several locations in the Austin area, Mandola's brings deep roots to the table. Cool off with refreshing aperitifs or enjoy classic or specialty cocktails, beer, and wine as well as grab a bite to eat.

Because a daily dose of happiness should last more than an hour, Mandola's features happy hour in Austin from 3 p.m. through 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Happy Hour at Mandola's

Happy hour customers at Mandola's enjoy the opportunity to sample a variety of fine wines at budget prices, the ability to build their own pizza from a list of ingredients, a selection of draft beers, and a variety of discounted appetizers. Happy hours provide an excellent way to relax with coworkers after a hard day at the office as well as to meet up with friends and family. You can also fly solo at Mandola's, and in true trattoria and Texas tradition, you won't be a stranger for long after wandering in alone.

The fun doesn't have to end at 6 p.m., however. Mandola's also offers a full menu of authentic Italian cuisine for those who'd like to continue their relaxing evening into the dinner hour.
