Happy hour recs along Ocean Ave in Santa Monica

Hey there -

There's all these great looking spots along Ocean Ave in Santa Monica. But my wallet is slimmish these days...

Any of y'all hounds out there know any good chowish happy hours on Ocean? I seem to recall one hotel bar offered $4 sushi from 4-7 PM.... other than that, I'm stumped.

  1. Ocean Ave Seafood has a happy hour from 4 to 6 pm Mon-Fri. They have great oysters which sometimes are part of happy hour deals.

      I second Ocean Ave has been a few months since I have been, but they have "happy hours" oysters special with a glass of wine for a very reasonable price!

    2. Not right on Ocean but less than a block in, the Yard on Broadway has a decent happy hour.

        i think they are sitll giving away coupons(up the street by the promenade) for a free appetizer at happy hour,

      2. I cugini has a decent happy hour in the bar area only.
        $10 will get you a glass of chianti and a beef carpaccio or pizza.

          Bar Pintxo, which is about a block from Ocean, has a happy hour daily from 4-6pm. $4 wines/sangria, $1.50 Stella (half pint) and 6 for $6 tapas.

          5th Amendment Alehouse has a happy hour (which I think runs all night?), offering a few beers for $3 (IIRC) and I think a couple wines for $4 (?). The first time I went, I had a relatively poor experience, but I went back a couple weeks ago, and actually enjoyed myself.

          1. Anisette Brasserie does one, too.

            About a block off of Ocean, towards the Promenade. There are also a few places on the Promenade that do a happy hour, including Fraiche.
