Hey, Angelinos and Angelinas. Today I’m bringing you my top 5 happy hour spot in Los Angeles. Nothing is more satisfying than ending your day with a happy hour, except maybe ending your day with the city’s best and cheapest happy hour. Luckily in Los Angeles, you’ve got options. Lots of them. There is no denying that L.A. is infatuated with food and drink and as a result, many of our happy hour spots are taking a more elevated approach to their discounted dining menus. Although, I don’t drink alcohol, I enjoy a little get together with my girlfriends. Here we go:
1. Ceconni Upscale West Hollywood space Cecconi’s has one of the best Tuesday through Saturday happy hours around, anchored by a lounge burger that comes laced with fontina, pancetta and black truffle oil for $7. Add draft prosecco and a range of $4 – $7 drinks for maximum effect.
2. Gracias Madre From 3 to 6 p.m. on weekdays, Gracias Madre has discounted drinks like their popular mezcal mule, to go along with a selection of simple bites. Better still, everything on the menu is a cool $6. The most beautiful instagram worthy pictures. As for food, try their happy hour nachos ($6) which had black beans, pico de gallo, guac, cheese, salsa verde, chorizo and sprinkle with cilantro with their homemade tortilla chips. Yummy!
3. Rosewood Tavern Rosewood really lets you feel at home while pulling your usual routine (and not to mention keeps it classy!). it’s like the mix between your neighborhood bar and your Hollywood scene (i mean the NETworking options here are unlimited). This is just a sweet spot to sip a brew, chat with friends, and forget your life issues. Also, they have the best hot wings in LA! (No exaggeration). 4. PINK TACO Everyone knows I’m obsessed with tacos. Pink Taco is one of my favorites because of it’s half-priced beer, wine, cocktails and $6 appetizers; $2 tacos, street corn, margaritas and beer on Tuesdays. From 4-7 during happy hour, the margaritas are strong (and HUGE) and the hefty appetizers a mere $6. On Tuesdays, load up on carne asada, chicken, mushroom and fish tacos for only $2, then wash it down with one of their famous margaritas for $2 (an additional shot is only $1!).
5. PERCH Last but not least is Perch. A little on the pricier side but a top class restaurant with the best view in the city (other than Griffith Park or Runyon Canyon). The steak is fantastically cooked and even though the portions are rather manageable, the amount of food is certainly sufficient. The restaurant is accessible over two elevators going up many floors in order to create a wonderful view. The staff is very courteous (which I also expected for the price range) and the interior is very enjoyable. Sometimes they have live bands playing on the outside patio area.
