My friend and I were hankering for some liquor, so she suggested we come to Hudson House. I've never heard of this place, as this is not in my hood, but she said they had happy hour. That's all it took.
Located on PCH, Hudson House is an unassuming gastropub that probably wouldn't have garnered a second look from me. I'm more into the chi chi lounges, as some of you may know.
We parked on the street, and sauntered in. The place was pretty empty and it was around 6:30 pm. But, who cares? HH was in full effect! Hudson has "Happiest Hour" from 5-7 pm on weekdays.
They had the door open and it was freezing cold, so we sat towards the back on the room and ordered up some drinks. I had the blueberry cava cocktail ($4), and she opted for a chardonnay ($5).
My cava cocktail consisted of champagne and some blueberries at the bottom. It was pretty damn good, and even better at 4 buckaroos. I ended up drinking 2 of those. Since blueberries have antioxidants, why not?
We shared a steak with frites as well. Priced at $13, the steak was huge and we actually couldn't finish it. Steak came sliced already which was good, since I didn't feel like doing much work last night. Fries had garlic, truffles and cheese on it. How can you go wrong with that combo?
Our bartender was attentive, friendly and good looking. It's always a plus to have some eye candy.
I'll come back, but maybe on a different night when it's more lively. Yay for a good happy hour under $20!
