Appetizers and Happy Hour Near Beverly Hills?
Does anyone have any recommendations for a good place to get drinks after work and light (as in not a full mean) food in the Beverly Hills area that is not super expensive? Something along the lines of 3rd stop (but not there because I am looking for a change in scenery)? Does such a place exist? Has anyone tried the Backstage Cafe? I am the social coordinator for the week and need help! Thanks in advance.
McCormicks and Schmicks (sp) at 2 Rodeo in Beverly Hills. Nice patio and cheap happy hour food.
Nicks martini lounge -- not on the cheap side, a little more shishi -- but good drinks and food. They do have a $5 martini happy hour and specials on food
I'd also suggest El Carmen, on Third just a bit east of La Cienega, if you are in the mood for tacos.

Chaya has a good happy hour and appetizers.
I'd stay away from Backstage Cafe; their cheese-sticks are great, but the drinks are over-priced
Nic's Martini is decent, not the most layed back tho.
The Crescent on Crescent Drive is pretty good, nice outdoor patio and great desserts.
Also, I really like the Palihouse on Holloway at La Cienega for drinks, its a more-french/less-gothic feeling Chateau Marmont lobby.
