The Ultimate List of Oyster Happy Hours In Los Angeles

August 4, 2016 by Christina Champlin

If there’s one problem with sucking down a delicious, briny oyster it’s that when eat one, you’ll inevitably want about a dozen more.

And trust me, I’m well aware from personal experience just how expensive that can get.


Lucky for all us many of our city’s best restaurants host happy hours with oysters at bargain basement prices.

So with that in mind we searched high and low for some of the best oyster deals in town to help guide you (and us) when the hankering for these bivalves just gets too strong.

The result? An expansive list of oyster hotspots from the Eastside to the Westside to the Valley and beyond.

Bottom line: Finding an oyster happy hour in Los Angeles just got a lot easier 😉

Happy shucking!
