Great local spot to relax

I was in town for work and this spot came recommended to me by a local. It was a great choice as I visited this place on my last day in Pasadena. The bar staff was super cool and I had a great time with locals that I met sitting at the bar. I had plans to explore other places... read more

Although on a business trip from England and not knowing where to eat I came across this great place in the Old Pasadena. Heathy pizza and a couple of glasses of wine.

This is a great place to chill before, during or after a day of sightseeing or shopping in Pasadena. It is located in the middle of Paseo Colorado in the heart of Pasadena. Quiet, cozy with a terrific wine menu and a great "small bites" menu. Hit them at happy hour (7 days a week) and share a carafe and... More

We went to Bodega Wine Bar and really didn't know what to expect. When you enter, it feels a bit awkward since there is no one at the front of the house to greet you (we went on a Tuesday night, so it might be different during busier times). We walked around and found a table that we liked. There... More

don't go for the food or the wine. keep your expectations low on both. it's a hang out. a favorite hang out mind you. I met my wife there... but it's just that, a fun place to hang out, have fun, maybe snack; but I'd rather eat at a number of other places, then go to Bodega... :-)

Enjoyed a lovely couple of hours at the wine bar with friends. The wine selection is excellent and the food is great. Some trendy and unique choices. Jenna is a fab waiter! Nice place to hang.

I have been here a few times, including the week it first opened. I've been here for wine tasting and I've been here for the 'scene'. It's definitely a place that caters to the latter. My coworkers use it as a pickup joint. At night the place is illuminated with candles and has a cool vibe as people sit on... More

OK spot for wine, better beers and appetizers. Not sure about the crowd that frequents the place, but OK as long as you are with friends.
