Walking last Saturday through the San Francisco Fine Arts Fair on one of the piers at Fort Mason, I heard a call directed at me through the crowd: “Can’t ever really leave Pasadena, can you?” It was Peter Mendenhall of the eponymous Los Angeles gallery, a version of which used to be in Pasadena, and […]

Magnolia Lounge

Magnolia Lounge

The red flocked wallpaper, crystal light fixtures and low velvet couches pay tribute to the speakeasy (Pasadena’s first) that purportedly thrived here during Prohibition.
