Red White and Bluezz
Pasadena, CA 91101
LA Weekly's Description
Pairing fine wines with some of this town's best jazz musicians, Red White + Bluezz is a classy oasis of cool in Pasadena, and a key part of the city's ongoing nightlife renaissance. In-house sommeliers have assembled an astonishingly extensive wine list, with literally dozens of European and California wines, ranging from sparkling wines and "true" champagnes to old-world whites and new-world Bordeaux and Zinfandels. Wine is such a big deal here that the bar hosts regular classes and wine-tasting events. The menu starts with such appetizers as crab cakes and fried macaroni & cheese and continues with full courses like steak, lamb chops, ribs and lobster fettucine. The live entertainment is anything but background music, with regular gigs by local jazz stalwarts like Joe Lo Piccolo, Peter Smith, Doug MacDonald, Louis Van Taylor and Diane Hubka. The daily performances often include up to three sets per night. There is no cover, but reservations are recommended, especially for diners who want to sit near the stage.
Tips from foursquare
It's actually Red, White & Bluezz. It's a jazz bar with some awesome people. There's a front and a back area.

We stopped in from Chi and fell in love. The vibe, the truffles, the great live music, and the host who knows everyone, made us feel right at home
Crab cakes are ALL crab - must try them! Another fav is the mac and cheese.
