Boasting Dallas’ largest patio bar and lounge, Happiest Hour has been recognized as one of the “Best Happy Hours in Dallas” by the Dallas Observer, D Magazine, Dallas Eater, and CultureMap, and consistently ranks in the top alcohol sales in the Metroplex. The bar, which opened in 2015, quickly grew in popularity due to its expansive rooftop patio, creative eats, and impeccable skyline view. Sitting across from the American Airlines Center in Victory Park, Happiest Hour has become a go-to destination for concert-goers, sports fans, and social butterflies.

the strategy.

We crafted our strategy by retargeting previous event attendees as well as utilizing lookalike audiences to mimic previous event attendees. By using hyper-targeted audiences to hone in on potential attendees we were able to maximize our budget to the highest potential. After fully understanding our target audience, we utilized Facebook, Instagram, and Instagram Stories to target local millennials on the platforms they use most.
