Happy Hour: near BH/We Ho/The Grove area

I'm meeting up with some five girlfriends on Friday for happy hour. My cousin is in town and I want to go somewhere lively and fun - so she gets a taste of LA. Most of the happy hours we know of end on the early side and we are all coming from work. Any suggestions for places in and around Beverly Hills/West Hollywood area (nothing east of The Grove/Larchmont though)? We've been to Cha Cha Chas a few times now and are looking for some other ideas. Late happy hours are great too.

            Second Hotel Belmont.

            Also The Third Stop.

              I like Third Stop too (the food is really good), but I wish they had mixed drinks there instead of only wine and beer!

          2. I llke the wine happy hour at Mr. Marcel Pain Vin Et Fromage located in the Farmers Market at the Grove. Definitely an LA vibe. Wines are 1/2 price and the olives and bread are always perfect sides. Live large and order a cheeses and pate plate. Nice mix of locals, people from CBS next door, and French ex-pats. Surprisingly, not a lot of tourist. I think they head to the Cheesecake factory. Then head over to the Whisper Lounge and finish up over there.

            1. Go to Luna Park. They have a great happy hour.

                I went to Luna Park with my GF for Happy Hour. Got their mac and cheese and the other HH special. Wasn't satisfied so went to Jack In the Box and got a burger. Then I was satisfied.
