Many restaurant happy hours in Los Angeles have taken on whole new style. No longer is it considered a time to get "not very interesting cheap eats"— rather, if you choose your destination carefully, you may very well find some favorite dishes at a lower price. A number of restaurants are now shaking up the traditional happy hour model with a twist, adding late night happy hours to the mix. Although some fall late in the evening, others could very well replace a meal at a more reasonable time. With that in mind, check out some stellar "reverse" happy hours that will appeal to every taste.

There are many tales about the origin of the Margarita, but what is known are the basic ingredients: tequila, triple sec, lime juice, and salt on the glass rim. These days, the Margarita can be found in many creative variations using tequila, mezcal, and other agave spirits, along with fresh fruit, herbs, and spices—shaken, stirred, or blended and served in a variety of glassware.

No matter what ingredients are used and how it’s prepared, what can be agreed upon is that the Margarita is a most celebratory drink—in a "party" kind of way. So, cheers to good times and to the best places to find Margaritas in Los Angeles.
