The O.G. Barney's Beanery is the best place in West Hollywood to catch a game, especially during happy hour when you take advantage of half price appetizers and bargain beer and well drinks.

Happy Hour: Tuesday-Saturday, 4pm-7pm

Not only is Ceccioni's 4-7 available for a lengthy three hours (from 4 to 7 to be exact) but food and drinks are offered at a shockingly low $4-$7. Opt for some Italian small plates (a.k.a. cicchetti) but make sure to save room for the decadent fontina and pancetta topped burger, which also includes a drizzle of black truffle oil for good measure. Not only is this one of the best happy hours in West Hollywood, it's a candidate for best meal deal in all of Los Angeles.

For those in search of a non-carnivorous happy hour option, Gracias Madre has you covered. The "plant-based" Mexican favorite offers assorted small bites and booze for only $5. Keep it simple with a margarita or go a little loco and opt for the mezcal mule.

8171 Santa Monica Blvd.
West Hollywood, CA 90046
(323) 848-2722
Happy Hour: Monday-Friday, 4pm-6pm, 10pm-11pm

Now there's yet another reason to check out Michael Cimarusti's ever-popular Connie and Ted's. The recently added late night hour (which compliments the always packed early bird offering) provides night owls a chance to sample yet exceptional east coast seafood small plates including fried calamari and oysters on the half shell for a only a few clams. Save yourself the trouble of choosing a drink and opt for the daily bartenders choice special.

312 N. Robertson Blvd.
West Hollywood, CA 90048
(310) 271-6300
Happy Hour: Monday-Friday, 4pm to 7pm

"Bargain" is a relative term when it comes to caviar specialist Petrossian's happy hour menu, particularly since a plate of olives is the sole food option that doesn't hit double figures. But if you're hankering for a taste of that pricey fish egg goodness there's no better deal in town. Decadent options such as a mini lobster roll topped with sea urchin and caviar and a caviar burger slider (priced at $15 each) are well worth the price tag. If you want to keep things simple, the $49 caviar for two (which includes 30g of caviar plus prosecco or vodka) should not be overlooked.
