Happy hour is a social staple in Los Angeles. In addition to being the perfect outlet for blowing off steam, it’s a great opportunity to network without blowing an entire paycheck. But in Hollywood, everyone is looking for the next bigger and better option, and that includes happy hour. To accommodate the promiscuous palate of the happy hour hipster, many bars and restaurants seasonally update their happy hour offerings to keep customers coming back. So if you’re looking for a change of menu at the turn of the season, check out these places with new happy hour fare.
