Cozy but Cool Places for Drinks in Pasadena

funfoodfriend Jan 15, 2007 02:05 AM

As the nights are getting chillier, does anyone know of warm cozy places for drinks, either alcoholic or hot beverages like cider/cocoa, in the Pasadena area?

Fireplaces are always good, but just nice comfy sofas and a cozy environment would be great.

    Bean Town is a very cozy place and I especially like their white hot chocolate. Oh, and they have some nice comfy couches!

      I really like The Raymond (please get directions, easy to miss) on Fair Oaks on the Pas/So. Pas. border.

      Cozy Craftsman house converted to food - good wine list, cocktails and a fireplace. Cozy, yes - cool? Subjective.

        This is in Eagle Rock, but it is perfect for what you are looking for. It has a fireplace, and it's very cozy but very cool inside: The Chalet on Colorado. It's like the inside of a ski chalet.

          I like Crepe Vine, Bodega Wine Bar (in the Paseo), Red White + Bluezz & Magnolia's on Lake

            Try the cute, English-style wine bar (small, dimly lit room) at Madeleine, on Greenstreet.

            The handsome bar (with music playing) at the Ritz Huntington is also a great place to wind down.

              I second Crepe and Vine for wine. Equator coffee shop is laid back and casual for hot chocolate.

                For wine, try VERTICAL WINE BISTRO.

                For hot chocolate or mocha, try ZONA ROSA or CAFE CULTURE.

                  I really like the wine bar at the Crepe Vine. It is cozy, a little dark and has good food.

                    Try Magnolia's on South Lake. Cool and intimate. Drinks are strong and very friendly environment.
