XIV: Here Comes the Hippest Happy Hour in Hollywood

If you haven’t checked out Michael Mina’s beautiful restaurant, XIV in West Hollywood, now is the time. The Philippe Starck-designed restaurant is now offering happy hour with cocktails, appetizers and even valet parking for a reasonable $6. Appetizers include Kobe beef slider burgers, lobster corn dogs and truffle oil popcorn. The event, called 6iv on Sunset, runs Tuesday through Saturdays in the beautiful patio area. They’ll even put on the games so you can watch Kobe perform his magic while sipping on your mango cocktail. Throwing up televisions is not something you’d think this swanky restaurant would be into but then again, this is not your typical restaurant. “We’ve been talking about doing something like this for a while,” echoes Ryan Cole, the general manager of XIV. “There’s such a drastic difference between the terrace area and the restaurant. The terrace allows us to do a lot of different, fun things. It’s possible for us to be a little more approachable for those in the area.” Bravo to XIV for loosening up and remembering what LA is all about – fabulous food, awesome friends and unbelievable experiences. 6ix on Sunset @ XIV Where: 8117 W. Sunset Blvd., L.A. When: 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays Price: No cover {Source: LA Times}
