With its close proximity to Los Angeles and its ideal weather, Pasadena has an upscale nightlife scene. From top-notch restaurants to swanky nightclubs, there is plenty to do once the sun goes down in this city. But it should be stated that Pasadena in no way can compete with Los Angeles of course, and therefore the majority of major nightlife destination places in the area are in the city of angels.

For a more relaxed evening, try Magnolia on South Lake Drive, whose subdued lighting and chill-out music will provide a night of hip people watching and relaxation. Madeline's Wine Bistro and Bodega Wine Bar which as you can imagne have fabulous wine lists and stay open late.

Never be afraid to ask a local in Pasadena where to go while you're here; they are very friendly!
