Michael McCarty, known for his California cuisine and his personal connections to local growers of the best seasonal ingredients at the farmers’ market, introduces an “All Night” $6 Happy Hour starting tomorrow. Executive Chef John-Carlos Kuramoto has created the happy hour menu featuring the best seasonal ingredients from the Santa Monica Farmers’ Market; and acclaimed mixologist Jason Robey complements the menu with his farm-to-glass cocktails featuring seasonal herbs and fruits grown on Michael’s new rooftop garden, along with fresh produce from the farmers’ market.
Michael’s “All Night” $6 happy hour menu is offered Monday-Friday from 5 pm to close. All of the happy hour menu items are $6 each, with the exception of fresh oysters on the half-shell for $3 each.
The happy hour menu includes one of Robey’s most refreshing specialty cocktails, The “Rickey” – Vodka or Gin, Fresh Lime, and Soda, along with a selection of imported beers and wines. Also try the Borracha Remolacha, made with Revolucion Reposado Tequila, Del Maguey Mezcal “Vida”, Lime, Agave Nectar, Beet Juice, and Orange Bitters; and the Wilbur’s Nemesis, featuring Maker’s Mark Bacon Reduction, Leopold Bros’ Apple Whiskey, Bulleit Rye, Dolin Rouge, Angostura Bitters, and a garnish of torched Applewood-Smoked Bacon. Ok, so you may have to come more than once.
