happy hour 3rdarm rivera los angeles

My friend Steph C. recommended Rivera and Playa on the strength of the bar program. We dropped in right when Rivera opened and it was happy hour. The happy hour drinks were well executed and top ingredients- a great deal. The best drink of the day was definitely the full priced even more fully flavored Barbacoa.

The Barbacoa works the angles, from spicy, smoky, earthy, salty, bittersweet. The Barbacoa is meaty, with its hickory smoked jerky. There is umami. I would go just for the Barbacoa and to try what’s new on the drink menu- but did not get a chance to try the food this time.
