The Pizza here is TRULY EASTCOAST... they Import the water to make the dough!!! yum!
Every Wed they have a live band karaoke. You get to sing karaoke to your fav songs backed by a full band. So fun!
Good place for a casual hang in Hollywood. Beer pong & filet mignon sliders...nuff said.
I am not a party animal. But I love Happy Ending. You can eat you can drink and you can dance. I like the layout of the place and I really enjoy the music. I like the kind of people that go there and you can always spot some actors so yes it's my kind of place.
loved the free popcorn and parking lot.... better parking situation then big wangs.... plus it doesn't feel like your in a boston basement somewhere sitting on fold out chairs...plus a happy ending, how can u go wrong....
I'm a local and have been to this place many times. Free UFC fights (GSP showed up a few months ago), Lakers games, NCAA Football, etc. There is no cover to enter and the venue is nice with a lot of TV's and projectors and also has a 2nd floor. During the day and early evening, the place has a killer menu. Mostly bar food, but everything is good. The pizza, the filet sliders, the burgers, you name it. They also have a cool wheel on the wall which they allow girls to spin. Once it lands on a drink special, that special will be good until the next girl spins. The bar staff is usually friendly and will even let the girl have a freebie if she can land on the special she wants. Why usually friendly? I came here once and a few of the bartenders were from the New England area. They seemed to care more about the BoSox-Yankees game than serving patrons waiting for drinks. Happy Ending also serves free popcorn! At night, the music is usually good and the place will get packed on weekends around midnight and stay full till 2 am. The crowd is a pretty eclectic mix, but that's what you're going to get in Hollywood. I've also come here when they've had beer pong set up as well as a night when a band played covers of songs while participants could come up on stage and sing along. I guess it's like live karaoke. Good times.
If a sports bar and a college bar would have a baby, and that baby crawled onto sunset than this is it. Are there better sports bars out there? Yes... Are there better college bars out there?? yes. But only here can you receive the best of both world in the heart of hollywood. The bars decent size, theres no cover charge and sports are running all day. This isnt a club, if you looking to freak all night long then this isnt your place. However if your looking to drown your sorrows with some friends and be one of the handful of randoms stumbling out of this bar at 2 in the morning, come here. As a guy, im always on my best game here. Cause you never know with happy endings. They have good nights and bad nights, but regardless you will have a selection of chicks to mingle with.
After leaving the Hawaiian BBQ we ran out in the rain splashing in puddles and dodging cars in the parking lot to drive over to Happy Ending. Since it was right behind the place we had just been at we'd figure it would be a cinch to park and what not. It wasn't, there was valet here so rather than try to circle the block and avoid rush hour traffic we just valet'd. It was like 3.50 (remember this). We go inside and it's a New York style bar, with TV's at every booth.. I mean literally tv's over my head and gf's head and so on and so forth at every booth.. nice! My team the Knick's were on the tube but lost to the Cav's. Fans were cheering. We checked out the menu and I tried the Mahi Mahi fish tacos. This was a bad idea as I'm so used to the killer Mahi's at South Beach in OB that these didn't fare well in comparison. GF got the chicken spring rolls and I traded some of my tacos for her spring rolls. I drank a couple of Racer 5's and she had a bud light. The atmosphere is more enjoyable than the food is and I can see some good drinking time being done here. They had a spin the wheel game for drink specials... plenty of space for many guests, lots of TV's for sports, and Johnny on the spot servers. I do recommend this place for drinks after work or as a starter for a crawl along the strip...... in the end... you'll be happy, except when we got outside and the valet price had gone up to 4.75. Another couple apparently was familiar with their shenanigans as they joked about it as they arrived. I said document the current price as when you get out it's gonna be different, laughed and sped off to sweet home San Diego.
My favorite bar in Hollywood. everytime i go i have a blast but for some weird reason my friend can never get in they most really hate him loll. but its all good Happy Ending is a cool place to be :) .
Go for Happy Hour and to watch games. Great place for that and away from the tourists. Tacos are good, just order the salsa on the side cause it's HOTTT!!!
