So try this alternative, schedule an UrbanSitter babysitter and sneak out with your honey for HAPPY HOUR!
I didn’t have to do much convincing to get my hubs to join me for happy hour at HQ Gastropub in Woodland Hills. The Valley’s newest hot spot is super chic and fun, and features WAY better drinks and appetizers on their happy hour menu than most places. We pigged out on their yummy Signature Sausage Platter, Fried Pickles, and (my favorite) Buffalo Cauliflower.
But let’s be honest, it’s all about the drink specials, right?
We happily sampled some of their featured drinks including the Coconut Grove, Martinis and Bikinis, and the spicy and surprising Malibu (HQ Habanero Mule). Be warned, they go down eeeaaassssyyy, but are a fun and hipster-friendly change from the cheap house booze most happy hours are known for.
The music and screens were pumping enough to keep the energy going, but not so loud we couldn’t chat about our day and relax together. And the vibe there is edgy cool and chill, so no need to worry about your end of the day attire.
The best part? With our babysitter Jodi from UrbanSitter, we came home to find our kids ready for bed with homework done and dinner finished!
So check out HQ Gastropub in Woodland Hills for happy hour or a full dinner (you should take a peek at their regular menu, it’s INSANE!!!) and have some fun with your mate.
