Happy Hour Agency is a Los Angeles based creative agency making and sharing ideas that are collaborative, wacky, and fun. We create sensory experiences powered by curiosity and our insights in the worlds of booze, design, art, and community. We are transparent in our values, bold in our vision and aim to pour these principles into each of our projects.

Currently, we host a conceptual cocktail pop-up every few months in the Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. We also offer our services to other likeminded organizations looking for a good time. Learn more about each of us below.
