34 Instagram Captions For Happy Hour Pics, Because It's Time To Wine Down


After a long day at the office, one of the best ways to boost your spirits is by making happy hour plans with your friends. Happy hour — if you’re 21 or over — is such a treat, because it allows you to break free from your cubicle and chat about anything other than work with your friends. (And let's be honest: Who can pass up a deal on $5 margaritas?) For this joyous occasion, you'll need some Instagram captions for happy hour plans.

Whether you’re going to the pub around the corner or checking out a new spot with seriously Insta-worthy cocktails, you know a selfie or two will be snapped. Not only do you need a drink pic, but you'll want to get a pic of the whole crew together, too. With no more meetings or calendar invites to deal with for the rest of the day, your squad will be smiling from ear to ear.

When you're ready to post those pics, pair any of these 34 happy hour-inspired captions with them.
