The Low Down


When to Go: Happy hour here hosts a slightly different menu, with cheaper options such as crunchy calamari ($7) or a smaller, less costly version of their popular burger. But the best time to enjoy Upper West is for a late dinner with a group of friends or a date--when the music and mood is perfect.

What to Drink: Ladies love the cucumber martinis while men seen to be curious about options like the honey rye with orange bitters and Barenjager honey liqueur that's served with an orange peel on the rocks.

Parking: Valet right out front, but you also can park around the corner just next to the freeway for free, if you don't mind walking a bit.
