Little Cleo’s, named after the iconic fishing lure, introduces a new “Happy Hour for the Absinthe Minded”—a happy hour experience featuring specials on fresh, seasonal catches, cocktails and more.

Launched last month on National Absinthe Day, guests can cheers to the day’s end with a few shellfish staples, house champagne, absinthe, and absinthe cocktails such as Hemingway’s infamous Death in The Afternoon that mixes absinthe, dry sparkling wine, and simple syrup for the perfect way to kill an afternoon.

Unique incentives available at “Happy Hour for the Absinthe Minded” include: $1 oysters; $1 shrimp; $2 champagne pours; and half-off all absinthe and absinthe cocktails. The new “Absinthe Minded” happy hour specials are available 4-5 p.m. from Monday through Saturday.

Little Cleo’s is located inside The Yard at 5632 N. 7th St. For more information, call 602-680-4044. To view the complete menu, visit
