During a recent visit to BOA on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, we indulged in their 5 – 7 PM weekday Happy Hour. We arrived just after 5 PM, and the restaurant was already buzzing with excitement.
Upon entering this posh, upscale modernized steakhouse, we were filled with a sense of excitement and were instantly enveloped inside a world of visual complacency.
The red granite bar top coordinates nicely with the red-interiored wooden boxes clustered together above you on the ceiling…calming wood tones and calming hues abound throughout the interior lounge areas.
As welcoming as the indoor living room like lounge in front of the inside bar appeared, we just couldn’t resist sitting outside on the roofless patio lounge in front of a flickering fireplace…adorned with tall clear glass vases filled with underwater orchids.
BOA offers several delicious options to select from on their Monday through Friday Happy Hour menu. Such intriguing fare includes the Ahi Tacos – $7 (normally $12), the Smoked Salmon & Goat Cheese Pizzetta – $9 (normally $14), Spicy Steak Tartar On a Crispy Rice Cake – $7 (usually $11), the popular BOA Burger Sliders – $8 (normally $10), the Ahi Tuna Cruso – $9 (usually $14), Boneless Sweet Thai Chicken Wings – $6 (usually $10), the Marinated Skirt Steak Pinwheels – $6 (normally $12), the Charcuterie & Cheese Plate – $17 (usually $22), Fried Pickles – $6 (usually $8), Kobe Corn Dogs – $6 (usually $10), Crispy Calamari – $7 (normally $12), and the BOA Crudite – $7 (usually $12).
The Happy Hour menu exhibits tasty libations to enjoy such as the BOA Infusion for $7, the Fleetwood Margarita for $8, their Luckman Martini at $9, Select Imported Beers for $6 each, Prosecco and Red Wine for $6 a glass, and White Wine for $5. A lot of variety to suit a lot of tastes.
Above, the Fleetwood Margarita and BOA Infusion served in a martini glass were exhilaratingly cool and revitalizing, while the Ahi Tacos below were savory and spicy, filled with tomato, onion, with a delightful crunch.fresh Ahi tuna and creamy avocado.
The Marinated Skirt Steak Pinwheels below were incredible. Wrapped around tender cooked pearl onions, the savory beef slices will delight your taste buds and satisfy even the pickiest beef fanatics.
Below, the BOA Burger Sliders were perfectly cooked to our preference and were surrounded by tender mini buns, melted cheese and thin onion strings. (See full review and photos at SavorHour.com!)
We very much enjoyed our visit to BOA on Sunset Boulevard. When we return, we will bring some friends and go for dinner in the out-of-doors dining room and watch the transformation as the sun goes down and the lights of BOA come alive and enchant us with its upscale alluring ambiance throughout the night!
