The Best Places to Grab a Drink in the Temecula Valley
It’s a tough job, but somebody had to do it. I drank my way around the entire Inland Empire to find out the best places to sip a cocktail, grab some grub and just have a generally great time with your friends.
Okay, maybe I didn’t personally drink at all of them, but I did do the research, conducted surveys and found out where the best deals are around town. And, let’s face it. I did drink at a lot of them. I’m mean, really. Who am I kidding?
I have compiled a list of some of the best Happy Hours and drink and food specials around town and I am sharing it with you, dear readers, because nothing means more to me than your good time. On my list, I have locations that are fairly new to the area, a few old favorites, and even some cool haunts off the beaten path; places you may not even know about but could be right in your own backyard.
Although we all like to hit up the Yard House or the new Karl Strauss time and again, What’s Up? Temecula is all about the local influence on the community so no chain restaurants are mentioned on this list. Also, to be fair and unbiased, I contacted dozens of locations for permission to mention their location in my story so if your personal favorite didn’t make the list, chances are they never returned my inquiry for approval. It doesn’t mean they aren’t a fabulous place to get a drink.
But luckily a ton of my favorites, and yours, did respond, so….read the story, call up your friends, put the cab company number in your phone, and go check out some of What’s Up? Temecula’s “Best Places to Grab a Drink in the Temecula Valley.”
