Drago Centro: Aperitif Hour
When Drago Centro first opened, they didn’t have a happy hour but I’ve spent a lot of time at their bar. I’ve yet to actually do a sit-down meal (though I’ve done dineLA for lunch– at the bar).
What brings me back to their bar so often? The discounted cocktails are well-made and the bites are delicious. The latest bar menu features pizzas, wonderful Kobe sliders and various bruschettas. Sadly, my favorite cerignola olives that were once complimentary are now $3 on the menu but it’s a $3 I’ll gladly pay.
Last Friday, I discovered these great mortadella sandwiches made with their delightful bread rolls (normally served with their charcuterie plate).
They are the perfect little sandwiches to go with the drinks. I fell in love with their lychee cocktail but it’s no longer available on the bar menu (they can still make it though). These days, I’m drinking their Ward 8s and Hemingway Daiquiris.
With happy hour prices ranging from $3-$9 and free valet or four hours free parking (after 5 p.m.), why haven’t you gone to Drago Centro yet?
Yeah, why haven’t I gone there yet? OH I live with my parents… that’s why. Nice little post Shauna 🙂
Shooo… I have no idea why I haven’t been here yet. Maybe because I get lost downtown, but free valet is definitely a draw.
Anisha- oh dear, you need to get down here!
Jennie- Drago is super easy to find. It’s between the two Paul Hasting buildings aka “Arco”. Valet stand is on Figueroa then you take a couple of steps down. It’s next to Chaya Downtown so sometimes I do happy hour bar hop.
