Restaurants in Virginia can now legally advertise their happy hour specials.

The new rules are thanks to the happy hour legislation approved by the Virginia General Assembly this year. The Senate and the House of Delegates passed proposals to expand restaurants’ ability to advertise happy hours and the price of featured alcoholic beverages.

Restaurant could not previously share their happy hour specials on social media, on their websites, in advertising or with members of the media for the purpose of publication. Now they can.

Some happy hour specials are only available at the restaurant's bar or in certain parts of the restaurant. Check with the specific restaurant on where the specials are available.

This article will be updated. See below on how to have your restaurant's special added.
