Happy Hour Promotion!


We are launching a Happy Hour promotion in July and August, and we want you to join us! 

Downtown London has teamed up with Tourism London, London Economic Development Corporation, and Old East Village BIA to create the Happy Hour campaign to encourage people to stay in the core a little longer this summer.

The initial deadline to participate is Friday, June 9. If you miss that date, you can be added as the campaign progresses but may not be included in the initial launch. We know that many businesses are already offering Happy Hour menus and hope you’ll consider participating in this promotion!

Important: You must submit your event happening to the Tourism London website before the 15th of the previous month to be included in the next month (Ex: you have an event in July, submit it before June 15).
