Mizner Park's forest-fantasy Italian restaurant and movie-theater combo offers $5 artisanal cocktails in the bar and lounge area during happy hour. Mixologist Adam Seger got his liquor-industry wings learning wines in California and working Chicago's cocktail scene. At Tanzy, his drinks are mixed with herbs grown in the restaurant's garden. Happy-hour spirit choices include Finlandia, Bacardi, Bombay, El Jimador and Johnnie Walker. House wines go for $5, as well, and drafts of Sam Adams, Miller Light and Peroni cost $4. Here, "bar food" means Brussels sprouts and pan-seared calamari, and the dishes cost $8 instead of $10 and $13.
Happy hour: 4-7 p.m. weekdays
Recommended drink: The illegalito, a mojito made with tropical fruits and Boca Loca Fresh Sugar Cane Brazilian Rum
Location: Tanzy Restaurant, Mizner Park, 301 Plaza Real, Boca Raton, 561-922-6699, TanzyRestaurant.com
