Our Happy Hour was featured on Epic Lake Tahoe as one of the best in South Lake Tahoe
5 South Lake Tahoe Happy Hours To Hit This November
With so much to do around Lake Tahoe, working up a beer-etite (that’s beer + appetite)
can happen quickly. And when you’re tired and thirsty,
finding an adequate drinking hole can result in backseat bickering,
Yelp-fatigue or worse—like settling on the closest spot rather than the best spot.
But we know as well as you do that not all bars are created equal, especially between the hours of 3-6pm, when you’re well within the happy hour window if you know where to look.
We’re here to help with that. So you can move quickly from your bike seat to a bar seat,
we’ve put together a list of our favorite fall time happy hours around South Lake Tahoe.

Green Bucks at Riva Grill
The Tahoe Fund is a non profit organization that improves the extraordinary natural environment of the Lake Tahoe Basin by building broad support and funding for projects and programs that restore and enhance the Lake for the enjoyment of current and future generations. Here at Riva Grill, we are proud to be a part of the Green Bucks program, a donation based program that contributes to hiking and biking trails, watershed restoration projects, wildlife protection and environment stewardship programs. By adding a donation line on every payment that is processed on a credit carde, our generous guests have donated one dollar at a time to contribute to the overall well-being of this place we call home. Thank you for everyone that has supported Riva Grill as well as the Tahoe Fund through the Green Bucks program, this has really been a great example of how the smallest effort can add up to make a huge difference. Check out this video below to learn more!
Here at Riva Grill we are excited to run another winter of Fish Taco Fridays, a tradition that has carried through over 10 seasons! If you've never been, it's an experience not to miss whether you live in South Lake or are visiting for a ski weekend. Every Friday from 6-10 we offer drink specials on margaritas, our signature cocktail - the Wet Woody, Coronas & Modelos, a rotating liquor special and our famous fish tacos. Live music from 8-11 by Strange Weather Unplugged and the most fun part...raffle prize giveaways every hour! We partner with local business around town to give away some seriously awesome swag, gift certificates, ski/snowboard gear and various services. Without our rad sponsors, Fish Taco Friday would only be half as fun, and nobody likes to be shortchanged. We'd like to thank our sponsors and recommend you go say hello next time you're in town. There are lots of places that offer similar products or services, but we partner with the best and promise you won't be disappointed!
Right up the road from Riva Grill, Heavenly boasts some of the greatest runs in the Sierras with vast terrain and breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe. A family favorite: ski lessons for the kids and more bars and lounges than you can count on one hand; everyone wins!

Also located on Ski Run Blvd, Ripp 'n Willies is your ultimate rental and repair hub. They'll hook your skis or snowboard up with a great tune and wax, or don't have gear? They've got you covered. Get everything you'll need for the mountain.
Pier Sun Tans
Catty Corner to Riva on Ski Run Blvd and Lake Tahoe Blvd you'll find our friends at Pier Sun Tanning salon. The owners are so friendly, the place is uber clean and you'll walk out a few shades darker than you got there.
Forest Suites Resport
You'll pretty much land at the front door straight from the Gondola. Great resort, friendly staff and walking distance to all the Heavenly Village madness and fun!

Opal Ultra Lounge
All the fun to be had at Opal Ultra Lounge in Montbleu Resort and Casino until the weeeee hours of the morning. If you came to Tahoe with your dancing shoes, this is the place to be!
Lake Tahoe Mid Summer Recap
Can you believe July is nearly here and gone? We've hardly looked up since Memorial Day and all of us here at Riva Grill could really go for a mid summer Wet Woody! It's surly been a packed summer in Lake Tahoe and while Memorial Day feels like it was moons ago, we wanted to highlight a few of the events that have gone on around town that make South Lake Tahoe a place that should be on everyone's hit list!
Another Celebrity Golf Tournament in the books! And this year, Justin Timerlake graced us with his beautiful presence.
We are so glad to that one of America's top five fireworks show is still in South Lake Tahoe!
Imagine Dragons at the Harvey's Outdoor Summer Concert Series.
Wet Woody Wednesday. All day. All night. All summer long.
We were happy to be of moral support (i.e., Wet Woody service) to those who ran in the Rock Tahoe Half Marathon
THE Kenny Chesney right in our own backyard.
Live at Lakeview every Thursday! Too bad there isn't a better view.
And still to come.....
ELTON JOHN. Whaaaaaaaaaaaat?!
We'd love to know, what has been your highlight in Tahoe this summer?
Happy Memorial Day!
The staff at Riva Grill would like to thank everyone who has served our country. God bless our brave soldiers and the Land of the Free. We hope you enjoy your holiday weekend and we invite you to come celebrate Memorial Day with a Wet Woody in hand. The sun is out and the deck is open! Cheers.
Wet Woody Wednesday is Back!
For as long as we can remember, Wet Woody Wednesday has been a yearly tradition that keeps people looking forward to hump day. With discounted Wet Woodys all day, all night and all summer, who wouldn't want a mid-week pick-me-up? Come visit us on Wednesday's and see what the fun is all about! And if you're boating, speed up to our sister restaurant Gar Woods in Carnelian Bay for their Wet Woody. Same great taste, just different view of Lake Tahoe.
Happy Spring equinox! Here are some photos of Tahoe lately so you know exactly what Spring looks like in our neck of the woods. Are you visiting Tahoe this spring or summer? Tell us what you're most looking forward to.
