"My favorite Happy Hour is in Santa Monica at La Puglia. La Puli won the Gamberi Rosso award this year and is the first restaurant to win this award outside of Italy! With its warm ambiance, friendly staff, and delectable food, La Puglia is a must-visit destination for food and wine enthusiasts looking to experience the taste of Italy in the heart of Los Angeles. The wine list is all from Puglia as well, very authentic and delicious. They have indoor/outdoor seating, happy hour daily from 1 pm-5 pm, and exciting live jazz nights."

"Tesse Restaurant and Boutillier is located at 8500 Sunset Blvd, attached to AKA West Hollywood. The wine bar patio seating area is dressed with comfortable seating and fire pits to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere, perfect for outdoor dining on warmer and colder evenings. The cocktails have fun and gimmicky names to make for a good time. My favorite drink is the Guillotine! Indulge in Sunset Hour bites and savings available Tuesday-Friday from 5 pm-7 pm and on the weekends from 11 am-7 pm."

It feels like you are having a drink with your feet dangling in the water. I recommend going during sunset to take advantage of spectacular sunset views from the restaurant."
