Living in LA can be expensive, especially when you are trying to live the "instagram life". How is Becky hitting up $$$ spots on yelp without breaking her last season's YSL wallet? Happy Hour. Now, what's tricky about Happy Hour is the fact that this time frame is as small as an indoor chihuahua poodle mix.
First, you need to know when and where. Planning is crucial, especially when you take 30 min. to find parking and another 20 min. to snapchat the measures you went through to find said parking. Next, look at the happy hour menu BEFORE your arrival. Happy Hours are meant for you to get buzzed on a budget, so every minute wasted debating between the cucumber or grapefruit martini, is another dollar you will be paying for the full price cocktails. With that said, we have done you a favor in putting together a list of the best Happy Hours in Mid City LA. Your Welcome.
