Mussels at happy hour at Olde Bar.

The Olde Bar
125 Walnut St., 5-7 p.m. Monday-Friday, 4-6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday 

Jose Garces' reimagination of Old Original Bookbinder's — a tribute richly wrought in 19th-century mahogany, globe lighting, and intricate tile — delivers a classic/classy happy hour. Check the blackboard for drink specials above and beyond those on the printed menu. A perfectly mixed Air Mail ($8) paired well with richly flavored mussels (only $5, as are the other HH snacks).
