Buster's Happy Hour is the third album from Buster Poindexter, the alter ego of singer David Johansen.

Like his previous album Buster Goes Berserk, it features his backing band The Banshees of Blue, continues the "lounge rock" style of its predecessors in covering rhythm 'n' blues songs of the 1940s and 1950s. The cover of the album is a painting by David Johansen himself.
