I live in Silver Lake, one of the most hipster neighborhoods in the US. “mid-east” side of Los Angeles is known for its mid-century modern architecture, and variety of vegan restaurants and boutique shops at Sunset junction. Upon my recent return, I’ve been noticing a few cool happy hours and tried a few out. Here are three of my personal favorite happy hours one can find on a late weekday afternoon after work. It’s also a great way to start a weekend early after work on a Friday.
2538 Hyperion Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90027
(Happy Hour is Monday to Friday from 4-7pm.)
The Happy Hour is not only a steal, but the beer selection, sliders, and overall vibe make this a very appealing place to hang with friends. Who can resist a laid-back place like this? They even have weekly trivia nights!

1920 Hyperion Ave, 90039 Los Angeles
(Happy Hour is Monday-Friday from 3-7pm. $2 off appetizers, $1 off well drinks)
This Mexican restaurant has been around for over 50 years and you will soon learn why. I come here for the enchiladas or chicken in mole sauce. They have an enclosed patio that makes dining and drinking al fresco extra appealing.
3626 Sunset Blvd., Silver Lake
(Happy Hours: Mon-Thurs 6pm-midnight, Friday 6pm-2am)
This is perhaps the most quaint and budget-friendly of the three. Beer is only $3 and there is a daily bartender special. Thursday nights from 6-7pm they also have an Oyster special, and they won an award for “Best Patio.”
