Party Earth Review A favorite with frat boys and tourists, Saddle Ranch transplants the rock-western chop house from the heart of Texas to the world-famous Sunset Strip. As patrons mosey in, they’ll most likely come upon a wild scene where LA cowgirls, lured by cash prizes, down drinks and mount the mechanical bull to the drunken cheers of ... more

Party Earth Review Though the name may look like a misspelling of a facility for the destitute, Pour Haus is actually a casual wine bar where just sitting down earns guests a complimentary taste of cava and some truffle popcorn.

Party Earth Review One might expect The Glendon Bar & Kitchen, given its location in the heart of UCLA’s Westwood Village, to be just another college den, but the upscale venue manages to cater to a crowd beyond – while not excluding – the university set.

Party Earth Review Between the faux-log cabin walls, the mounted buck heads, and the hipsters wearing flannel, Bigfoot West seems more like an indie hunting lodge than a hip bar serving high-end specialty cocktails.

With big-city food and drink prices that tend to inflate at breakneck speeds, Angelenos are huge fans of a solid happy hour menu.
For a laid-back vibe, inexpensive oysters, and cheap wine, Bar Bistro in Beverly Hills is a great way to avoid the area’s typical tourist traps. Dedicated deal seekers who don’t mind the gritty Downtown L.A. atmosphere partake in the happy hour specials at Seven Grand and the nearby Golden Gopher.
Westsiders who want in on the penny-saving action enjoy the versatile menus of Copa d' Oro in Santa Monica, Townhouse in Venice, and Ercolés in Manhattan Beach.
Oftentimes one of L.A.’s most pricy dining options, sushi spots with a happy hour menu have become one of the more coveted deals in town. Hipsters who want the full Sunset Junction experience head to Koda Sushi & Sake in Silver Lake, while those in Koreatown save money at DwitGolMok (DGM for short). And for the best happy-hour sushi deal in West Hollywood, people in the know hit up Omi Sushi.
The cost of dining out is only getting higher. Avoid digging around the couch cushions for spare change by saving money at the best happy hours in Los Angeles.
