DIRECTION 

At Happy Hour we tell, listen and immerse ourselves in stories. We gather over old fashions and glasses of wine, in an even play field where stories become the protagonist. The everyday transforms into exciting, and this energy allows some of the best ideas to come alive. 
 
Happy Hour is our favorite kind of overtime.

HAPPY HOUR COUNTS AS OVERTIME, RIGHT?
