Did you watch the debate this past weekend? Holy hell. It was enough to make us want to drink our way into November, when all of this will be over. Or, you know, we could just go to happy hour every day this week. If you're looking for a new place to imbibe for less, here are four spots that launched a new happy hour recently.
Rock & Reilly's: The Irish pub has been a longtime fixture in West Hollywood's bar scene, but its new Downtown location (formerly FOH) now brings a rowdy happy hour to the financial district. Draft beers and shared bites are half-priced, while well drinks and select wines are $5. Mon-Fri 4-7pm
Belle Vie: This charming French bistro has a massive wine list, but glasses can add up—except during happy hour. For two hours each day, a selection of wines are just $5 a glass. The list generally incorporates reds, whites and a rosé; pair it with a cheese and charcuterie board and you'll feel like you're spending a leisurely afternoon in Paris. Daily 5-7pm
Nest at WP24: If you're looking for a happy hour with a view, Nest at WP24 will do the job. They recently launched an Overtime Power Hour, taking place after every Kings, Clippers and Lakers home game at the Staples Center until close. Small bites will start at $6—Maine lobster spring rolls, pork belly bao buns and sushi are all on the list—and there will be specialty off-menu items available during this time as well. Cocktails start at $9, including a house-made sangria with red wine, prosecco and fresh fruit. After home games until close
Brack Shop Tavern: The new DTLA bar is already getting into the happy hour game with a vegetarian-focused menu that everyone can enjoy. Try the Welsh rarebit ($5), molé tacos ($5), gourmet popcorn ($3) and twice-baked wee potatoes ($5), which can be made without bacon. Palomas, gin and tonics and old-fashioneds are $5-$6, while house wines are $5 and a boilermaker is $6. Mon-Sat 4-7pm
