In search of the best happy hour views in Los Angeles? From downtown to the beach, here are the places to come on and get happy!


Monday through Thursday from 4-7pm, head down the the beach and gaze out at the ocean from the Venice Whaler, which offers $2 off drafts, $2 off well cocktails, $5 off pitchers, $5 house wines, and $7 Old Fashioned cocktails. Bar food is also half off, which includes bacon fritters for $5.50. 10 Washington Blvd, Venice

Monday through Friday from 4-6 pm, all of downtown L.A. is your oyster from Perch. Beer is $5, wine is $6 and Royals–a shot of something creme-y added to a glass of champers, is also $6. Fancy craft cocktails like the Hemingway on the Beach—Greenall’s gin, Luxardo, lemon juice and angostura—are $7 and petite items like brie en croute—puff pastry wrapped brie with apple and fennel, and mini hot dogs, are so cheap they’re almost free. The best happy hour in town, hands down. 448 Hill St, Los Angeles


Take in the ocean views in a panoramic way from a truly magical spot.  From 3 to 6 p.m. weekdays at Santa Monica’s Hotel Casa Del Mar, classic cocktails, highballs and wines are cut to $10, craft beers or bottles (Stella Artois, Amstel, Corona or Lagunitas) are $5 and house-made, thin-crust pizzas are $8.

They won’t call it happy hour, but it certainly is (and, to be fair to the hotel, we agree… no matter what you call it, it “is a good time!”  At Upstairs, Mondays through Fridays from 12 – 5:30 pm, guests can indulge in $1 oysters and ever-changing drink specials plus one of the best views in all of downtown Los Angeles. 929 S Broadway, Los Angeles



Take in the best views of L.A. from the rooftop at Mama Shelter, where discounted drinks are available from 3-7 pm Monday through Friday. 6500 Selma Ave, Los Angeles
