When you have a case of the Mondays, the bar at McCormick and Schmick's Downtown is a great place to unwind on an early Monday evening. The bar boasts one of the best happy hours in Los Angeles. Downtown executives spill out of the near by skyscrapers when their days end, and head into the bar to unwind and wait out the traffic with the incredible happy hour specials.
This high brow happy hour runs in the 250+ capacity bar and patio area on Monday-Thursday from 3:00-10:00 pm, and Friday until 10:30 pm. Along side well drink specials and $4.50 domestic draft beers, McCormick and Schmick’s also offers specials on premium beverages.

Monday is Martini night, and sometimes a Dirty Martini for $7.75 is the best way to end the first day back at work. Other Monday night deals include two Oyster Shooters for $1.95. The shooters are quite fresh and come loaded with cocktail sauce, horseradish and lemons.
The food menu at McCormick and Schmicks is ever changing as fresh ingredients are flown in daily, but the famous Half Pound Cheeseburger cooked medium well with fries for just $2.95 has always been there. Other incredible food deals range from $1.95 for California rolls, Bruschetta and Chicken Tostadas, and $4.95 for Spicy Black Mussels and Calamari Spiders. The only requirement for enjoying these food deals is a $3.50 minimum on beverages per person, which is easily met with a draft beer or some sodas.

The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and take pride in their work. The Food and Beverage Manager, Julian Andrei, is dressed sharp and happy to answer any questions or suggest a cure for your bad day at work.
