The Hudson is the old home of The Boulevard, tucked in the corner of Santa Monica Blvd. & Crescent Heights Blvd. Since October 22nd, The Hudson has opened with style, offering a daily 5-hour happy hour and an additional 3 hours on select nights!

This happy hour adventure came about when catching up with a friend who lived within 2 blocks of the location. He swore by the Shroom Burger, which we can now vouch for, as well as the drinks. Upon perusing the happy hour menu, I learned that only beer & drinks were included in happy hour specials, no wine (the horror!)… at least for now anyway. When questioning that, I learned that this was in fact a bar that’s barely been open a week, including a soft opening for friends & family, so they are definitely still finding their footing. One can only hope that wine will eventually be included. Because the staff was so friendly, I can forgive wine being left off the happy hour menu. For now.

We caught up over our $4 vodka cocktails, which were surprisingly strong, given their small size. When it was time to order food, the server was very informative in recommending food for a place that had been open only a week. I already had my mind made up on the Shroom Burger, but my friend could not decide on a sandwich. Our server had good things to say about the Cuban Sandwich and the Philly Sandwich. It was nice to hear that she knew about both, and that she was not out to up sell anything. My friend went with the Cuban Sandwich. Unfortunately, during happy hour, the only things on special are fries, calamari, & onion rings, fish & chips, & mac & cheese. However, with sandwiches for $10 that include a side of fresh cut fries or mixed green salad, there’s not much room for complaints.

The Hudson is a good place for groups, dates, & friends. Whatever the reason for being there, you’re sure to find something you like.

There's really no where else to mention this, but there is a tree straight through the bar!
