Best Happy Hour Los Angeles 2013 


Restaurateurs Brandon Boudet and Warner Ebbink couldn't save Tom Bergin's, but they may have successfully rescued the happy hour at another of their champion warhorses, Dominick's, a Westside fixture and famously low-key celebrity hideout. Dom's has inaugurated the Five O'Clock Meeting, held 5 to 7 p.m. on weeknights. It's an intimate offering whose hallmarks include $4 "Littles" — vodka or gin martinis, Manhattans, Champagne cocktails and Tequila Daisies — all served straight up by engaging barkeeps and fashioned with brand spirits a notch or two above the usual well-drink swill. While diminutive in name, these cocktails are still shaken and poured generously, and they pack a decent punch. You can even order a large rice ball, or two large meatballs, or a plate of bruschetta with the cocktail, and the bar tab will be only about $8. It's a retro reimagining of happy hour, with a nostalgic price tag to boot. 8715 Beverly Blvd., W. Hlywd. (310) 652-2335, —Jeffrey Burbank
