Magnolia House, the newest concept from Bicos Hospitality (Gus' BBQ, The Original Tops), will begin serving craft cocktails to denizens of Pasadena on Monday, October 20. Mixologist Evan Zimmerman will be mixing up cocktails like the Italian Fling with rum, sweet vermouth, Campari, and aromatic bitters; the Lumberjack's Breakfast with scotch, applejack, cardamom, maple syrup, and egg white; and the Mendocino Sour with six-year-old bourbon, Fino sherry, rooibos, and lavender.
Bites come from executive chef Kyu Yi with the likes of Korean friend chicken wings and king crab mac and cheese.
The lounge, a renovated 1912 craftsman bungalow, has a gorgeous, homey design that feels as if you are stepping into a friend's eclectic residence, with comfortable lounge seating, exposed beams, and an inviting outdoor patio that's tied together with brick walls and chevron patterns.
Magnolia House will be open Monday-Wednesday 4 pm - 12 am, Thursday-Saturday 4 pm - 2 am, and Sunday 2 pm - 2 am.
