inko Nito

Overall Score- 4.8/5

Happy Hour Score- 4.9/5

It’s been a year and a half since London’s Inko Nito opened in the Arts District in DTLA and the Happy Hour menu might be their secret sauce to success. Covering everything from cocktails to sake, snacks to full entrees, this Japanese Robata restaurant is cooking with a lot of finesse and at a price, we couldn’t believe. Surrounded by what feels like a forest in Japan, this Arts District gem will have you coming back for dinner. Check out what we drank, what we ate, and what Mariana had to order twice over because it was so very good. Cheers!

Emerald

It’s time for another mid-week treat here at Happy Hour City! Today, we’re toasting with an Irish classic that constantly gets overlooked because of it’s relativity to the O.G. of classic cocktails- the Manhattan. Today, we’re exploring the Irish cousin of the family, the Emerald! So grab your glass and raise a toast to the Isles with this easy but spirit forward kick-in-the-ass cocktail your Wednesday needs.

Massilia

Happy Hour: 4.8/5

Overall: 4.8/5

We were called west to Santa Monica in honor of Massilia’s Happy Hour! A French, Italian, Morocco restaurant with a hint of California is now our favorite place to go for those summer vibes all LA looks for. Massilia has a very special, well-rounded Happy Hour menu that truly offers something for everyone. But it’s their elevated ambiance that will keep you there long after Happy Hour ends. Check out more of our review, cheers!

Painkiller

Happy Wednesday! Today, we're switching out the LA heatwave for the British Virgin Islands with the Painkiller cocktail! This staple Tiki cocktail is often confused for a Piña Colada, but its strength makes it a bigger and badder Tropical cocktail. We got you the recipe (that's had some controversy!), the short history, and the U.S. city that has the record of most Painkillers bought in a year- the answer WILL surprise you. Cheers!
