You work hard — or at least you say you do — so treat yourself to a new happy hour this week. Because there’s nothing like bonding with your coworkers over $5 cocktails and $1 oysters. Here are three new happy hours you should know about:
Manhattan House restaurant in Manhattan Beach calls its happy hour “happier” hour. Tuesday to Sunday, from 5 to 6:30 p.m., all beer, wine, cocktails and mocktails are 51% off. Chef Diana Stavaridis also has a selection of daily food specials, including a Sonoma lamb burger on Tuesdays, a house burger with foie gras on Thursdays and breakfast-for-dinner-themed specials on Sundays.1019 Manhattan Beach Blvd., Manhattan Beach, (310) 574-2277, www.manhattanhouse.pub.
Upstairs bar at the Ace hotel in downtown L.A. has launched something called “don’t call it happy hour.” Whatever they want to call it, it’s 5½ hours of specials. Monday to Friday, from noon to 5:30 p.m., oysters are $1 and wine spritzers and PBRs are $5. 929 S. Broadway, Los Angeles, (213) 623-3233, www.acehotel.com/losangeles/upstairs.
