A weeklong happy hour? Get ready for L.A.'s first ever Happy Hour Week

A weeklong happy hour? Yes, please. L.A. is getting a Happy Hour Week!

The Los Angeles Tourism and Convention Board is in full support of you cutting out early, and heading to happy hour. The same group that organizes the biannual dineL.A. Restaurant Week, when restaurants around the city present diners with special set menus, is now launching Happy Hour Week

The five-day happy hour celebration is happening April 27 to May 1.  

“We always try to find ways to give our dineL.A. customers new and memorable experiences, so it was only a matter of time before we introduced a program that celebrates the vibrant beverage scene in Los Angeles. It’s a natural evolution from the energy around and growth of Restaurant Week,” said Stacey Sun, director of dineL.A., in a statement. 

Restaurant Week participants, new bars and breweries are invited to take part in the Happy Hour Week, even if they don't normally offer happy hours. There are no confirmed restaurants participating yet, but the idea is to offer diners a selection of bar bites and drinks at happy hour prices. 

The Los Angeles Tourism and Convention Board is encouraging businesses to participate, and create menu items exclusive to Happy Hour Week.
