Nightlife to enjoy in Pasadena, CA US

With its ideal weather and its closeness to Los Angeles, Pasadena has a world class nightlife scene ranging from swanky nightclubs to top-notch restaurants. There are lots of activities to do in Pasadena, once the sun sets in the city.

Twin Palms is one of the favorite local destinations. It is a nice place to have dinner and later in the night, it also features live music along with a vibrant crowd ready to dance and mingle. Everything from reggae and electro to jazz beats can be enjoyed at the Twin Palms and the music played depends upon the particular day of the week.

Another favorite night spot for dancing lovers is The Muse on the Colorado Boulevard. This is a three storey night club which has a sexy décor, trendy crowd, billiards facilities and DJs.

If you are interested in enjoying your evening in a more relaxed manner, then you can try out the Magnolia on South Lake Drive. Its chill out music and subdued lighting provide a night of relaxation and watching hip people. The Wine Bistro of Madeline and the Bodega Wine Bar have some of the most fabulous wine lists and the best part is that they are open late in the night.
