Downtown - Saturday Happy Hour?

Any good spots for Saturday evening (or afternoon) happy hours? Looking for a place with a decent vibe, good beer selection preferred but not required, and quality (but not fancy.. pub grub is fine if it is good) food.

What is your favorite place to start off Saturday night on a budget?

      I believe Taste & Thirst on Fourth has 50% off everything from 3-8pm every day for happy hour.

      I went with a group of guys for a Laker playoff game and we got something like 25 mojitos as a group

    2. Check out Analog. New and I heard it is really cool.

        I agree Analog looks to have potential. Unfortunately they do not have happy hour on Saturdays.

      2. I think Neighborhood has 2 for 1 local beers during happy hour. Not sure about food specials.

        1. The Hitlon across from PETCO has a great food and beverage happy hour on the main Third Floor. They have outdoor patios with great couches and lounges. They also validate for parking.

          1. Thanks folks. I'll check out some of the suggestions and pick a couple of options. Can anybody confirm Neighborhood's specials (they look like they have a great beer selection!).

            Also, does the Hilton restaurant/bar have a name I can google?
