Monday Night Happy Hour Downtown Santa Monica

Hapgood | Sep 9, 2009 12:55 PM

Hi gang,

Any suggestions for a spot for happy hour this upcoming Monday? We're looking for a place that's walking distance from the Santa Monica Pier. There will be a group of around 10-15 of us for a friend's birthday, so it needs to be a place that can handle a small crowd. We'd like to be able to order food (fine with small plates and have some vegetarians in the group). Drinks should be $8 and under.

Here's a list of local happy hours if anyone needs a refresher on Santa Monica happy hour

Our backup option is Big Deans, but that's the usual watering hole, so we were hoping for something a little more special.

Has anyone had success with Copa del Oro? I went there for my boyfriend's birthday and we had a great experience - then a friend and I went back for happy hour and neither one of us enjoyed our cocktails. Did we have an off night or are the happy hour cocktails no good there?

I look forward to everyone's responses!
