Side Bar Summer Fling Happy Hour
Ages ago we polled our readers on their favorite types of happy hours (dirt cheap? 5star? bar food+beers? extensive wine list?) The overwhelming results showed that you all like to get drunk+fat at classy establishments you otherwise couldn’t afford, were it not for awesome happy hour deals.
So, in order to sate your thirst and hunger for fancy pants happy hours, we bring you the Summer Fling happy hour at The Side Bar.
Where: The Beverly Wilshire Hotel
When: Mon – Fri, 5-7pm
What: $12 Cocktails, $7 Wine, $5 Beers + $8 Bites
For those balking at $7 wine, take note that last time we dined at The Side Bar, our vino was in the $16/glass arena. So even after a couple of glasses you’re still coming out on top for this type of happy hour venue.
Want some insight into the offerings? Cocktails include such fussy-sounding-affairs like the ‘Duke of Earl’ (Earl Grey Tea Infused Gin, Lemon, Egg White, Simple Syrup) and a ‘Pavlov’s Dog’ (Tanqueray, Lillet, Grapefruit & Grapefruit Bitters.) There is a Processco, a Sangiovese (red), and a Grüner Veltliner (white) on the vino list, and a few different quality beer choices for those preferring suds (Sierra Nevada, Grolsh, and Guinness).
Food items include fries with an Old Bay Aioli (yum), crispy artchicokes (yumm), a pastrami on rye (yummm), and a lobster roll (yes please.)
Note: summer is nearly over, so act fast and grab yourself a schmancy glass of wine and some discounted bites while you ogle the bougie & celeb clientele.
