UPDATE #2 (2/2011): Den changed the deal again for 2011. Now offering happy hour cocktails (no food deals), 5-7pm Daily.
UPDATE: The Den has changed its hours for the fall. M-F 5pm – 2am, Sat/Sun 12pm – 2am. Because of this happy hour is now only offered 5-7pm Daily and includes 1/2 off beer/wine/wells + $5 Plates.
I’m not sure this post needs that much filler. I could tell you about the events leading up to, and following, our experience at The Den of Hollywood‘s happy hour, and how much we loved it, but really, the photos should speak for themselves:
The Den Happy Hour
Wine, Drafts, & Well Drinks: 1/2 Off, 12pm – 7pm DAILY
Small Plates: 1/2 Off, 3pm – 7pm DAILY
When we saw this menu sitting at the bar, we assumed that the prices listed were the Happy Hour pricing. We figured this pricing was pretty standard for HH and proceeded to order the sliders (obviously), the dates, the hot wings (2 plates) and the pork belly sliders. We also ordered a couple glasses of wine and our male companion ordered a couple Blue Moons. We didn’t see a drink menu prior to this so we weren’t sure what we were in for as far as drink prices were but figured they couldn’t be more than $5/glass of wine.
Needless to Say We Enjoyed Our Food
Sliders were great. Dates were wrapped with bacon and stuffed with cheese, good but a little to rich for us. The tacos were tasty but messy. The wings were pretty awesome and went fast.
Holy Crap this is CHEAP
Turns out – happy hour prices are 1/2 off the listed small plate prices on the menu (duh). We were in utter shock when the bill came – just $3.50 for a glass of wine? Just $3 for a Blue Moon? Just $3.50 for sliders? This is AMAZING.
Three of us were sated and buzzed for just $50 (Including Tip)?!
This is just ridiculously awesome. Despite the shitty parking situation we will certainly be back to try the rest of the menu. Plus, as previously reported, The Den has a BOTTOMLESS MIMOSA BRUNCH (our fav!) on Saturdays and Sundays from 11am – 3pm.
On Tuesdays (8pm – Close) The Den holds Twisted Tuesdays with $5 Twisted Margs $5 Twisted Martinis & $5 Twisted Shots.
So many reasons & ways to get drunk+fat without breaking the bank. Love it.
