Happy Hour(s)

LA PLANCHA SETS THE CLOCK FOR
THE BEST HAPPY HOUR ON THE ISLAND!

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS
Stop by our place any afternoon between 3:00 and 5:00pm, and we’ll punch our old-school time clock with a card. The time on your card is what you pay for each of your house or specialty frozen margaritas until 5:00pm. If you show up at 3:00, your drink is $3.00—at 4:30, it’s $4.30.

PLUS from 5:00 to 6:00pm, seven days a week, enjoy half-off all alcoholic beverages except our Don Julio 1942.

EVERY HOUR'S A HAPPY HOUR AT LA PLANCHA!
