The popular Historic Annapolis Happy Hour Series returns on Thursday May 16, June 13, July 18, August 15, and September 19. Each Happy Hour takes place at the William Paca House and Garden, located at 186 Prince George Street, from 5 pm – 7 pm. The cost for each Happy Hour is $15 for Historic Annapolis Members, $18 for Non-Members, and includes one drink ticket and light fare. Additional drink tickets are available for purchase. Reservations are encouraged, but not required and can be made at

These aren’t your typical Happy Hours. You may find yourself dancing to live music, solving a mystery or discovering history about our charming city, all while enjoying William Paca’s 2-acre English pleasure garden. Each happy hour has a specific theme and signature drink provided by Stoli vodka.

The theme for the May 16 Happy Hour is “A Day at the Races.” Don your best bow tie or fancy hat, it’s racing season! Annapolis has always been a hotbed of equestrian enthusiasm. Following the drama of the Kentucky Derby, we invite you to celebrate the final two races of the Triple Crown in style with a Stoli Black Eyed Susan cocktail in the scenic William Paca Garden. Highlights of the evening will include a best-dressed contest, photo booth, and race day activities. It will be a photo finish!
