Devoted LAist reader Ashley requested a Westside version of Deacon Booze -- and as a former long-time resident of the Westsiiiiiiiiide, I'm more than happy to oblige. Here are some of my top spots for drinks in West LA -- (and trust me when I say I have TESTED these places more than a few times). Why not email me your picks for when you find yourself west of the 405? Did I tell you love email? I sure do. Sigh. [Hits refresh.] Siiiiigh. [Refresh. Refresh.] SIIIIIIIIGGHHHH.

  • Finn McCool's, Santa Monica: 3-7pm Mondays through Saturdays. $3 drafts, bottled beers, well drinks, house wines, and appetizers. Also, who doesn't love the Fenian Cycle? That's right, NOBODY!
  • Border Grill, Santa Monica: Monday through Friday, 4pm to 7pm, drinks like margaritas, mojitos and imported beers are $4, and munchies such as quesadillas and green corn tamales are all $3. And that's not all -- Border Grill has a late night Happy Hour from 10pm-1am on Fridays and Saturdays as well.
  • Palomino, Westwood: M-F 4-7. Drinks are basic beer and wine for $3, with other discount options as well. Food: small pizzas from the wood-burning ovens are just $5 each, and bar food such as calamari or shrimp is all half-priced, about $6-7 per appetizer.
