some fresh new happy joints in pasadena area?

looking for a good happy hour in the pasadena area (or glendale, la crescenta, montrose). Something different than the usual suspects of yardhouse, mccormick and schmicks, hooters, and Im not a fan of sushi roku...drink specials (preferrably beer) and cheap eats is what I'm looking would also be nice if it started around 3 but not mandatory...any suggestions? place, time and what are the happy hour specials? thanks in advance!

  1. Don't know of any happy hour that starts at 3 p.m., but Bar Celona on Colorado has a decent hh. There is a sushi bar inside so you can either get tapas, or sushi. Weird, but it works somehow.

      1. Happy hour at La Maschera takes place Monday through Thursday from 5pm to 7pm.

          Oh I second this place. Great food and nice atmosphere, though their bar chairs are highly uncomfortable. However, they have couches in the bar area as well.

        2. I like Magnolia on South Lake. Happy hour til 7pm (I *think* it starts at 4pm, but I could be wrong). I don't think they sell beer (unless it's by the bottle) - full bar and good wines. The best part is their food -- all 1/2 off for happy hour and VERY good!! (Ends up being about $4-5 each.) Drink specials seem to vary by day. My favorites are mac n' cheese and chili in a cornbread bowl!

                4th. you step inside and you'd think you're in Hollywood, without all the pretentiousness.

          1. I haven't tried it yet but there's a new place on the corner of San Gabriel and Colorado called the Vault. On Tuesdays they have a ladies happy hour that includes champagne and a manicure for $10
