Best place to watch the Lakers in Pasadena?

Well I am planning to go watch the Lakers game this weekend with a few friends but I have no clue where we should go. We are all under 21 so we cant go to any sport bars. The place can also be in the Arcadia, Monrovia, San Gabriel area to. Thanks.

      Good advice.

          Not sure about the Pasadena location, but the Sierra Madre Lucky Baldwin's usually has a number of families/kids inside ... they have a full menu (some of which is actually pretty good) so it's not considered a 21-plus bar for entrance purposes. IIRC, there are only 3 not-so-huge flat screens there, but I'm sure at least one would be tuned to the Lakers game.

          Someone refresh my memory: does Zelo's have any TVs?

        2. A sports bar with no bar... hmmm...

          well there's barney's ltd. which is a restaurant/bar so you could watch it there.

          1. The Galley on Rosemead. It serves liquor but allows under age people. Pretty good hamburgers too.

              I was looking into the Galley but they close at 9 and the Laker game won't be over until like 9:15 which sucks. Barney's ltd looks pretty interesting, do you know if there are TV's near the tables for the "underage" kids?

                There's a whole section in the back that's all tables and 2 or 3 TVs. The front is a bar w/ a couple of smaller tables.

                2nd this - and I suspect they won't kick you out right at 9pm. Maybe call and ask?
