I'm not a fancy writer... just a girl that likes a good drink.


Onyx Lounge

A few weeks ago I met up with one of my favorite DTLA happy hour buddies, The Minty. We first met up at Pattern Bar, but unfortunately we weren't too impressed with their happy hour food prices and decided to go to Onyx instead. And boy, was that a good move!

Onyx's happy hour is daily from 4:30-7pm and ALL of their specialty cocktails are just $6 and I thought they were great!

They also have a REVERSE HAPPY HOUR Sunday - Thursday 10pm-close.

Onyx's cocktail list was created by Douglas Williams (@LiquidDouglas on Twitter) and is superb. Since Minty and Doulas are Twitter friends, he asked her back to try some new cocktails that would be on their menu. And lucky me... she invited me to tag along. Between both trips, we were delighted with the creative cocktails. Take a looksee!

Spring St. Smash - $6 
Bourbon, blackberry, basil, lemon, sambuca

Lenora's Fizz - $6
Gin, applejack, raspberry, lemon, egg white

Bitter Muse - $6 
Mezcal. sour cherries, gran classico

Smoked Peach Mint Julep - $6
Berheim wheat whiskey, Leopold Brothers' Georgia Peach Whiskey Cardamaro

Padrino - $6
Pisco, sherry, maraschino, bitters

FIDM Cup - $6
Gin, lime, celery salt

Here is the cocktail menu featured while we were there. Although the new cocktails were available, the menu was not yet updated. (Click to enlarge.) On my third trip back, I tried the Bunker Hill and love it!

For happy hour food, you get $2 off anything on the menu below. A bit high for happy hour, but if you are like me and  you drink more than you eat... the $6 cocktails COMPLETELY make up for it. And notice there are many options for our Vegetarian friends!

Mojo Marinated Pork Sliders - $9

Fish & Chips - $6
Shrimp ceviche w/ tortilla chips

So if you are looking to get your drink on, you gotta check out Onyx. You won't be disappointed.

And check out Minty's take on our visit.
