The Happiest Hour is a whimsical cocktail bar and full-service restaurant by Acme’s Jon Neidich and veteran New York bartender Jim Kearns, formerly of the NoMad Hotel and Pegu Club. Its “You pick ‘em, we pour ‘em” motto drives a non-judgmental drinks menu in a breezy space, adorned with cartoon palm trees, that evokes bygone California and Florida resorts.  Anchored by an award-winning burger, the elevated diner-style food offering also features sandwiches, chopped salads, and an array of sides- simple, yet highly satisfying, and classically American. A rock and soul soundtrack completes the mood.
