Check out 5 of our favorite Happy Hour spots in Los Angeles that are awesome for Date Nights, where you’re promised relaxation and libations.
Drago Centro in Downtown Los Angeles offers a Daily Happy Hour in their lounge area from 11:30 am to 10:00 pm Monday-Friday, and 5:00 pm to 10:30 pm on weekends. Enjoy Wine specials for $8 and Specialty Cocktails like their White Negroni crafted with Bookers gin, bordiga vermouth, and amara for $9.
The food menu is expansive with Saga Wagyu Mini Burgers for $9 and Pizzetta con Burrata for $8 making the top of my list for their simplicity for little fingers.
Masterminds Roy Choi and Matt Biancanielloto have designed a bar menu at The Pot Lobby Bar at The Line Hotel with Small Bites and Drinks that all cost less than the $10 valet. Pair an Old Fashioned on Tap ($8) with some Korean Spicy Chicken Wings ($6) for a third of the price you would pay at Pot. Happy hour runs from 2:30 to 8:00 pm daily.
Kettleblack in Silverlake offers their Happy Hour from 5 pm to 7 pm daily, and any fans of "the Manhattan" will be pleased to see it on the menu ($8). More traditional Italian beverages like Peroni ($4) and Negroni ($8) are also available. As far as food goes, I dare you not to order the Wood Fired Cauliflower bagna cauda, with golden raisins, capers & pine nuts ($8).
In a hurry? A Sip & Slice of cheese pizza with a choice of Peroni or House red, white, or rosé ($8) is worth finding the time for!
Happy Hour at Bourbon Steak at the Americana Mall runs daily here from 4:30 pm to 7 pm (and 3 pm on Sundays). Snacks on the lounge menu are all half off including Duck Spring Rolls with ginger-chili dipping sauce ($8) and Australian Lamb Lollipops with Chimichurri ($9). Butcher Cuts and Burgers are also specially priced at $22 and $14 respectively.
So what are you drinking? Enjoy 10 specialty cocktails for $7, Sommelier’s Select Juice (red, white, or bubbly) for $6, and their Daily Brew for $4.
Happy Hour takes place Sunday through Friday from 3 pm to 7 pm, during which you can order the always decadent JFAT Nachos with Sirloin Chili, Guacamole, and more for $8, Parmesan Garlic Fries for $5, and possibly the best Charred Brussel Sprouts in the city for $7.
Beers and Cocktails are $2, “Tap Wines” are $3, but my go-to has got to be ‘Sofia’s Skinny Partida’ Margarita crafted with Partida Blanco, Agave Nectar, muddled Citrus Cucumber and Mint $7. After all, you have to keep something skinny when you’re chowing down on nachos and fries (lol).
