Los Angeles Happy Hour Guide

04/06/2012

One of the many things I love about Los Angeles is happy hour. Not only do bars and restaurants have it, but frozen yogurt places, nail salons and even dog spas have it. Being from Boston, happy hour isn’t allowed. So, when I see deals like two-for-one, I am all about it. Here are some great spots around town to have the happiest of hours:

Cliff’s Edge
This spot is an intimate, outdoor splurge, but during happy hour they serve the bartender’s special cocktail for $7, as well as a revolving selection of wine for $6 and beer for $3. At the bar every night 6 pm till close. 3626 W Sunset Blvd., 90026; 323.666.6116

Petrossian Restaurant & Boutique
This family owned shop/restaurant has a 50% discount on their Champagne & caviar special (it’s now $50). Other eats drop to $10 and wine to $6 weekdays from 4- 7 pm. 321 N Roberston Blvd., West Hollywood, 90048; 310.271.8256

Chef Josef Centeno’s new downtown spot doesn’t call it a happy hour, but weekdays from 5-7 pm, order a $6 specialty cocktail or $5 beer to pair with the huge sandwiches. 408 S Main St., Los Angeles, 90013; 213.687.8808
