Kick Off Your Weekend at Pizzeria Paradiso Old Town

The URL of Pizzeria Paradiso advises customers to “” That’s sage advice, for sure, but it’s not the only thing you can do when you stop by this beloved local institution. The happy hour scene at this Old Town Alexandria outpost (halfway between Market Square and King Street Park) is a testament to that. 

On weekdays from 5 to 7 pm, stop by the bar or the game room for some of the most popular daily specials around. Deals include $3 discounts on draft beers and glasses of wine, $7 appetizers, and pizzas starting at just $12. That means you could get two pints of local craft beer or glasses of imported wine, a charcuterie board, and a 9-inch Neopolitan pizza for less than thirty bucks total.
