The Dish on happy hour at Silo

FANCY? Silo  has a southern sense of fancy. Located in Germantown, Silo complements the quaintness of this neighborhood’s brick sidewalks by providing an inherently rustic country atmosphere. The walls are wooden slats, and the tables and chairs are handpicked to match. Overall, Silo offers an enticing environment to unwind after a workday.

FUN? Whether you sit in the dining area, at the bar or on the patio, Silo offers a comfortable, friendly place. The waitstaff is knowledgeable and helpful, and the bartenders are personable. The music is not too loud, and the tracks offer easy listening.

FRUGAL? It can be! During the daily happy hour from 4 to 6 p.m. (including weekends), Silo offers creative cocktails for $6, wine for $5 and beer for $4. The seasonal menu features a number of excellent choices. It may be tough to decide what you should enjoy first– but this is a good problem to have.

The red wine is the Buenas Tempranillo (priced at $10.99 in liquor stores), which doesn’t make this quite as good of a deal as Michael David’s Petite Petit for $5.50 (priced at $18.99 in liquor stores) at the Sutler. However, unlike most house wines, this Tempranillo is rich and delicious with a hint of spice, vanilla, and oak.
