2. Izakaya Den

Sushi fans, rejoice! Izakaya Den has daily happy hour specials on sushi, wine, sake, beer, and spirits. That means the ultimate happy hour combo is up to you! Happy hour specials aside, the patio area alone is worth experiencing. Its nature-inspired walls made of stone and lush plants combined with the perfect lighting ambiance makes you feel as if you’re making a quick trip to Asia for the evening.
