    This hidden Little Tokyo spot has happy hour Sundays and Mondays. Classic cocktails for $6, $5 wells and house wine, a $4 beer of the day and other beer and sake deals pair well with the cheap bites. Read more

    Take public transportation (bus or rail) and you'll score 10% off your bill at this spot with a massive whiskey selection, Asian-influenced cocktails, an extensive sake list, and 40 beer taps.

    Great craft beer selection.Full bar, cheap HH. Outdoor seating. Inside fun too. Friendly and timely service except for one horrible clown. When you have picky guests, there is something for everyone.

    Great food! Great drinks! GREAT PRICES for happy hour! Had the seafood past and loved it. Sorbet for dessert was very refreshing and not heavy. Flavors change with the season.

    I love that their drink menu includes the proper glass for each - enjoying the local brews - Lost Abby Red Barn Ale is a nice Saison

    Italian Samurai Burger is an Angus beef patty with prosciutto, parmesan crisp, tempura onion rings, spicy tamarind aioli, lettuce and tomato, held together by brioche buns. Pairs well with craft brew. Read more
