Here is a list of some of my favorite happy hours in LA to get you through the week. Hump Day Happy Hour – make it a thing!
Bar Bouchon in Beverly Hills. In addition to people watching, from 4:00-7:00 Monday-Friday, Bar Bouchon features glasses of wine at $5 and $7 well drinks to go with $2 oysters, steak tartare, pork sliders, and truffle popcorn.
FIG Santa Monday has a literal happy hour from 5-6pm Tuesday-Saturday. Although it is a small window, it is worth it because EVERYTHING on the menu (except the steaks) are half off, as are the drinks.
Gracias Madre in West Hollywood is the best vegan Mexican around, and from 3-6pm on weekdays, they have a $5 happy hour menu and discounted drinks. As an added bonus the outside patio is gorgeous.
Napa Valley Grill in Westwood has a weekday happy hour menu that is pretty extensive. If you want a nice wine flight, this is the place to go. And then there is the kale salad…so good.
Cecconi’s West Hollywood has happy hour on Tuesday-Saturday from 4-7 pm where a variety of items are $4-$7 (including a fontina and black truffle burger).
Mas Malo in DTLA has happy hour from 3-7pm on weekdays. They offer beer for $3, sangria for $4 and margaritas for $5. They also have a variety of food specials as well, but you really should just get guacamole fries. Lots of guacamole fries. And add carne asada, because it is delicious.
Bottom line: You made it more than halfway through the week, you deserve discounted drinks.
