Open House at Vertical Bistro: Taste New Menu Items, Beers & Cocktails for $25


If you live in Pasadena or the surrounding San Gabriel Valley, it will be worth your while to drop into Vertical Bistro tomorrow night between 7 – 10 PM. Chef Laurent Quenioux has some new dishes up his sleeve that he would very much like to share with you. And for $25, you can taste a few of them as well as wash them down with some new beers and/or cocktails.

Not a bad open house for the locals.

Make sure you RSVP to the appropriate email address below to reserve your spot. I expect there to be some real tasty French bites awaiting you tomorrow inside the newly renovated Vertical Bistro. There is even a new “library” for you to check out. Now there’s bookshelves in this wine bar thanks to the new addition, which is a 60-seat dining room. The space now overlooks historic Raymond Avenue. This open house sounds like a great opportunity to try the renovation on for size.

Twelve Days of Bubbly at Vertical Wine Bistro

Let’s start this countdown to Christmas, shall we? (That is – if you celebrate.) Starting this Saturday, the “Wine Dude” over at Vertical Bistro in Pasadena, David Haskell, will select a different sparkling wine every day (with the exception of Mondays) to be featured in the bar and lounge for just $5 per glass. Be sure to use Haskell’s expertise while you’re there – he’ll be on hand to offer pairing suggestions from the bar’s new California bistro-inspired small plates selection, including rare and hard-to-find artisanal cheeses and charcuterie.

Also, if you’re not in the mood for bubbly, you can stop in any time at their Tuesday – Thursday happy hour from 5 – 7  PM and 10 PM – 12 AM, featuring 25 % off the bar menu and select drink specials for $6.

Peep the menu below to see what’s available to enjoy with your sparkling (or unsparkling) wine:
