It's no secret, Angelenos have alfresco dining down pat. But, sometimes we'd rather skip the meal altogether and make a beeline for the bar. Sure, that stiff drink may be as many calories as a bowl of pasta, but none of that matters when you're taking in those Instagram-worthy L.A. sunsets after a long day of meetings, deadlines, and traffic.
While not all of our top picks host happy hours in the traditional sense (you know, discounted booze), each of these seven cocktail spots are sure to put a smile on your face after work. So, go on, clock out a couple minutes early, grab some girlfriends, and enjoy a dusk-time drink in one of these stunning locales. You so deserve it!
