At the suggestion of my friend, Arielle, we decided to check out Oak Fire Pizza’s happy hour together, along with our friend, April. I attempted to check out the West Hollywood location for happy hour back when we started the site, but left quickly when they weren’t airing the Chicago Bears game. Enough time has passed that I figured it was time to give old Oak Fire another try.

Happy Hour at Oak Fire Pizza is daily 3-7pm and features half-off all wine and cocktails. They also feature a nice size selection of draft and bottled beers for $4. For my drink of choice, I ordered the Clifford Bay Sauvignon Blanc for $4.50. Arielle & April ordered a beer and a couple of Absolut & Diet Coke cocktails, made with a heavy pour. Oak Fire also has a specialty cocktail menu that features $6 cocktails at happy hour, always a plus.

For food, we started with the Southwest Chicken salad and Kobe Beef Sliders ($5). We also split the Wild Mushroom Pizza and Pesto Pizza with Shrimp, both priced at $10. The Kobe Beef Sliders were surprisingly average for how popular they were. We saw many tables get served sliders and we even had to wait a while for our order because “the slider station was backed up.” Out of the two pizzas that we ordered, the Wild Mushroom was my favorite. I liked the smokiness of the cheese and heartiness of the mushrooms. The Pesto Pizza was good, with our requested side of pizza sauce, but if I were to order one of the two again, Wild Mushroom wins.

Unlike the West Hollywood location, Oak Fire Pizza’s Sherman Oaks location is a pretty low key. At the WeHo location, young people get together to eat pizza, drink, and watch sports on one of the many TVs. The Sherman Oaks location has TVs as well, but not nearly as many. The volume was also off and none of the customers seemed to care about whatever sporting event that was on. The crowd was divided between people having after-work drinks (me & my friends) and young children and their parents who may be looking for something a little bit stronger than nearby treats at Menchies. We weren’t on the hunt for a family friendly happy hour, but it’s nice to know that they are out there for when our time comes.

Another cool thing about Oak Fire Pizza’s happy hour is that if you miss it 3-7pm, you can catch it later at 10:30pm!
