Dudes on the move

The spacious wraparound restaurant comes with barrel seating outside, dark blue floors inside, lots of communal picnic tables, TVs for watching events, and of course beer.

The shuttered Twohey’s restaurant in Alhambra is primed for a big comeback in South Pasadena soon. Now the restaurant is starting to show off the space it will occupy along Fair Oaks, albeit not the construction-filled interior.
