It seems some people aren’t totally aware that one of LA’s best casual restaurants, Plan Check, has a downtown location. Well you do now, and that means their first-rate beer list and excellent bar food is ready your after-work needs. Come Happy Hour, which runs weekdays 11:30am-7pm, there’s $5 select draft beer and house wine, $8 cocktails, and a $9 jidori chicken sandwich that’s easily our favorite in town.
