Monday-Friday, Chill, from 5-7 pm, game-night-feeling happy hour features $6 specialty drinks, wine & $4 beer & a handful of appetizers at $12.50

UPDATE - 5.11.10: Henry's Hat now has 2-for-1 happy hour on drinks and appetizers!!! AND a late night Happy Hour - beginning at 10 pm Sunday - Thursday and 11 pm on Friday & Saturday!

Located at the old Mini-Bar (across the street from the Universal Studios entrance on Caheunga) and brought to you by the same folks as La Brea's Luna Park - Henry's Hat is a cool little spot on the way to the Valley. With a handful of big screen tv's and one giant-screen tv, they also provide a variety of board games including checkers, chess, Connect-Four, and Wii (to play on the giant screen!).

From 5-7 on Monday through Friday, they serve a relaxed and fun happy hour, offering $6 specialty drinks and wines by the glass and $4 beers (no draft beer as of this review). The specialty drinks were great - fruity without being too sweet or heavy. We ordered the Peach Breeze, Luna Park Mojito, and Strawberry Basil Gimlet and can recommend all of them. They have a small happy hour appetizer menu, but could do with a little more variety (sliders, por favor?). We sampled the chili, tortilla chips con queso, french fries, and non-happy hour priced, but delicious hamburger.

The process for ordering is streamlined (and good for groups splitting bills!) - you order food and drink at the bar, bartender makes your drink there and gives you a # for your food. Servers bring your cutlery, water (by the pitcher - bonus points for us thirsty drinkers), and your food. Unlike an as yet-to-be-reviewed happy hour, the Henry’s Hat bartenders explain this all to you before you get started. The staff also wear t-shirts with “Pay Me” and “If it’s free ask me” just in case you forget after too many Peach Breezes.

The bar was pretty quiet, but picked up as happy hour wrapped - seemed like quite a few of the patrons were tuned into one of the many baseball games on the many tv's. Celeb guests, including a now sober Andy Dick and "The Pick Up Artist's" Mystery, reminded us of why we moved here from the Midwest – totally random Hollywood sightings!
