Drinks & Nightlife
Located in the middle of Old Town Pasadena this Wine and Olive Oil Restaurant is a great spot to learn about California wines and great Olive Oils. With live jazz music sometimes,​ they serve great flatbreads and the salads are "really" good. Wines are all small batch and come from only California wineries in the various micro-climates up and down the California coast but mostly central coast like Passo Robles which have some the best red's you will ever have. They change up the menu of wines all the time so we highly recommend this stop if you're​ in Old Town Pasadena. Oh yeah, Wine Wednesday from 11 am to 9 PM half off all glasses of wine and beer.
