The Frugal Diva was surprised to see so many places expanding their happy hour offerings. This is a fun way to try out a new place, have dinner for less, and you don’t even have to drink to enjoy the benefits. This is wonderful if you have out of town guests who are touring during the week days. Take them for a happy hour and still be home in time to get to sleep for work the next day.
Napa Valley Grill at 1100 Glendon Avenue in Westwood has a lovely menu with everything from beef sliders to small pizettes. Enjoy the outdoor patio and sip a glass of wine at the end of the day from 3 to 7 PM & 9 to midnight Monday to Saturday and Sunday from 3 to 11 PM.
Nic’s Martini Lounge in Beverly Hills on 453 North Canon Drive has their happy hour from 3:30 to 6:30 so it could also be a late lunch. On Monday nights they do $7 appitizers and martinis all night long.
La Boheme at 8400 Santa Monica Blvd. has happy hour 7 days a week from 5 to 7:30 PM. On a Saturday explore Roberston Blvd, Melrose Ave, and then drop in for a $5 glass of wine or $7 Martini and half off fun bites and sandwiches including a burger served with fries or a salad.
Vinoteca Farfalla at 1968 Hillhurst has a lovely selection of wine and beers with reduced price appetizers for their 5 to 7 PM weekday happy hour. This place is charming-dark and cozy for an end of the day respite.
Casa Cocina Y Cantina located at 350 S. Grand it’s close to the Disney Center, MOCA, and the Ahmanson. Monday through Friday from 3:30 to 6:30 PM get here in time and enjoy drinks and a fantastic selection of gourmet tacos wrapped in house made tortillas before the theater.
Since restaurants change their policies frequently please call before going. And try some of the happy hours from my previous post.
