Fantastic Happy Hour with the Girls

We randomly popped in for happy hour just to wait for dinner reservations to open - and it was absolutely delightful at the bar. Each of us had a couple of mimosas/bellinis and small bites: the proscuitto wrapped shrimp was my favorite, but we also had bruschetta and tuna tartare. Small... read more

I love the idea of this place. I'd give it a 2.5 if I could. The ambiance is girly and unique. I ordered the brownie dessert. I did substitute the vanilla ice cream for Baileys ice cream It was delicious. However, the brownie was about 1.5 in X 1.5 in. It was the dry, crunchy tyoe of brownie. And, it... More

I like coming here for a date with the hubby, but he does not like the small food portions. So, I come here with the girls! We love the chic ambiance and the selection of wines. Plus, they have happy hour! If you want to relax in a pretty environment and shoot-the-breeze with your buddies and catch up on everyone's... More

Cute and fun, but food was mediocre. With so many other places to choose from in Old Town Pasadena, this would not be on the list.

I love dessert... and I love POP. It's a great place with great food... I just wish the service was a little more attentive. I've been a number of times and it seems that the servers are always too busy doing something else to assist the customers. It's not awful just not what I'd call prompt and attentive. That being...

Was recently visiting the area for a bachelorette evening and wedding. We started our night here and were not the only group of bachelorettes, so I assume it is a popular location for groups looking for a classy get-together. All of the appetizers and desserts we tried were delicious! The bartender even offered to open one of our bottles using... More

Does it get any better than spending time with friends and enjoying a wonderful glass of wine? I don't think so. POP Champagne and Dessert Bar is the perfect location for a get together after work with friends and colleagues. Happy hour menu is nice and price is good. Parking can be a bit of a challenge at times.

This place was packed. This was a surprise since it was late in the evening. The service was very good even though the place was bustling and our waitress was constantly on the move. We stopped in for champagne and dessert (highly recommend chocolate decadence) -- both were an excellent way to celebrate the purchase of our new home.

My husband & I went to happy hour & had a great experience. The food was excellent! We ordered the jalapeño tuna tartare, appetizer trio (tapenade, hummus & tomato bruschetta), roasted beet salad & winter salad.
