Seems like every restaurant has some kind of happy hour deal these days (as they should!), so here are some of L.A.’s latest offerings:
- Asia de Cuba‘s “Out of Office” Fridays: For those of you who can get out of work early (or if you don’t have that problem, this is great!), this restaurant at the Mondrian hotel is now offering a $5 menu on Fridays from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.: $5 food, cocktails and valet parking. At the Asia de Cuba Bar in the hotel’s lobby, there’s also a happy hour from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. daily, with half-off the lounge’s menu items (excluding bottles); that means just about everything on the menu is less than $10.
- Rowdy Red Wine & Burger Bar: This downtown burger joint tucked away beneath the City National Plaza building has launched a weekday happy hour starting at 4:00 p.m. until close (7:00 p.m.) with $3 select wines by the glass and 30% off all wine bottles. You can also get a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon for $2 and appetizers for less than $5.
- Patina Restaurant Group‘s Locals Night: On six consecutive Thursdays, starting this Thursday, July 9, and ending Aug. 13, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., three of Patina’s downtown restaurants — Cafe Pinot, Nick and Stef’s, and Zucca Ristorante — will be hosting a rotating happy hour. The offerings include themed $5 appetizers, drink specials, a complimentary appetizer, live music and the chance to win prizes.
Here’s the schedule:
July 9: Café Pinot — A Taste of the French Riviera
July 16: Zucca Ristorante — Pizza & Peroni
July 23: Nick and Stef’s — Artisan Beer Tasting
July 30: Café Pinot — French Culinary Masters & Wine Flights
August 6: Zucca Ristorante — Tuscan Summer
August 13: Nick and Stef’s — CA Wine & Cheese Tasting
Additionally, Nick and Stef’s has just introduced its own weekday happy hour deal, from 3:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. (a score for business types working downtown!). Bar bites range from $2 for one oyster on the half shell to $12 for various flatbreads. Well drinks, house wines and a daily beer special are $6. There are also $10 food and drink pairings that vary by the day (Wednesday’s zucchini goat cheese fritters and a glass of rose sounds yummy!).
