The Hours: Happy Hour is offered 4:30 p.m. until close through the end of August.
The Interior: We've stopped by Roka Akor's happy hour before, but were so excited that they've extended deals until close during the summer that we decided to drop in again. The upscale Paradise Valley sushi and steak joint has a lovely, simple Japanese-inspired décor. Oodles of sakes and wines are on display in the bar and lounge area, which you can check out from high top, bar top or more comfortable, but highly coveted, couch seating.
The Food: We have never seen such an expansive happy hour menu. With nearly 30 completely different options, happy hour isn't simply about getting a couple appetizers for a cheap price. While the cold plate items mostly feature well-crafted sushi with a $9-$16 price tag, the hot plate options are much more reasonably priced between $2 and $10. That's not to say the cold plates aren't worth it (we loved our spicy tuna rolls, which came on a plate of eight for $9), but there are better deals on the menu.
