Ahhhh happy hour—that little span of time when the consumer feels like a winner because they are day drunk on discounted cocktails and full on reasonably priced food. Now there are more places you can go Downtown to win with the recent inaugurations of two happy hour menus.
The weekend brunch at The Perch has proven successful with a packed house every weekend. Now there’s reason to head to the restaurant located on the third floor of Container Park on weekdays from 4-6 p.m., too.
The small happy hour menu features $5, $7 and $9 options with items such as the bianca flatbread made with mozzarella, ricotta and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheeses topped with fresh arugula and white truffle oil. Have it “the good way,” according to manager Ryan Blair, by adding prosciutto. Other items such as the tuna tartare, tuna tostada and shrimp ceviche are light and crisp snacks that pair well with the crafted signature cocktail list, which are all $2 off for happy hour.
The newest addition, the Peña berry margarita is a sweet and spicy margarita with strawberries and muddled jalapenos with a mint salt rim. Or try the Perch martini made with Absolut, St. Germaine and hibiscus. All draft beers and house wines are $5 for happy hour.
Itsy Bitsy Ramen and Whisky
Every Monday-Friday from 3-6 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 p.m.–1 p.m., Itsy Bitsy, located at the Ogden at 105 N. Las Vegas Blvd., is serving an expanded happy hour menu with drink specials including $2 PBRs, $6 sake bombs, $4 wells and $5 house wines along with $6 drink specials such as the Sake-To-Me made with sake, lemongrass, cucumber and mint and the Angry Dragon made with baijiu (also known as shaojiu), dragon fruit, chilies and ginger beer. All sakes bottles are 50-percent off.
Bites range from $2-$6 and feature items such a miso ramen, shichimi crusted seared ahi tuna, smoky pork arabiki sausage, and takoyaki, which are stuffed fried wheat balls, and other classic Japanese appetizers such as chicken, beef of pork skewers, gyoza and spring rolls.
