With our new website launching soon, finals taking over our intern’s lives, and the shock of the Bachelor finale (do Nick and Vanessa even like each other?!), it’s been a hectic week here at the warehouse. Couple that with the beautiful weather we’ve been watching from our desks and, honestly, we could all use a margarita right about now.
For all of you having that kind of week, we are here to help. We’ve searched far and wide to find the restaurants and bars with the yummiest, cheapest, and most Instagram-able happy hours that Los Angeles has to offer. LA is a huge city with endless options of handcrafted cocktails and extravagant cheese plates, so we had to sample a lot of happy hours before narrowing our list down down to these five gems– but hey, we definitely didn’t mind doing our research.

F I G // Santa Monica
W H E N I T H A P P E N S // 5-6 pm every day of the week
W H A T Y O U G E T // during this popular happy hour, known as “Fig at Five,” almost everything on the menu is ½ off. FIG serves up an awesome collection of beverages, delicious Mediterranean food, and really f*cking good cheese.
