It’s officially Summer, so take advantage of the summer’s balmy evenings and late sunsets and set up a nautical happy hour. Thanks to the nautical trend explosion, décor decked out in navy stripes and anchors is not hard to come by. Keep it casual with DIY ideas, or hire a bartender to serve boat drinks for a classy clambake. Even if you’re landlocked, you can create a seaside escape that you’ll remember all summer long. Get pinning with some of our favorite nautical happy hour ideas.
Boat drinks and beachy bars create a seaside feel - even if you're nowhere near the ocean.
Extend the nautical theme with a few key pieces your guest will enjoy after they have a drink (or two) in hand.
