King's Row: Gastropubs are invading Pasadena

King's Row has cocktail, wine and several California draft beers
The owners of Neo Meze on Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena, who also own hotdoggery Doghaus, have totally redone the space and re-opened as gastropub King's Row. The bar area has a retractable ceiling for warm summer nights, and there's a large patio in the back alley similar to the one at Lucky Baldwin's a few doors down. Plus, a speakeasy-style bar called Whiskey Bottom is being planned for the basement. Draft beers include Taps Vienna Lager, Bruery White Orhard, Chimay Triple White, Racer 5 IPA, Stone Pale Ale and Telegraph Stock Porter, with aDogfish Head Palo Santo Marron and North Coast Old Rasputin Stout among the bottled selections. Most drafts are available at reasonable happy hour prices of $4 a pint, so it's worth stopping in on a shopping trip to Old Pasadena. On the menu are a duck confit banh mi, pan roasted mussels, a take on Bubble and Squeak with smoked salmon, a pulled pork sandwich and larger plates of pub-style favorites like fish 'n chips and Sheppard's Stack -- veal, boar and bacon meatloaf.
The opening party featured a roast pig -- maybe the patio can be used for regular pig roasts.
With Orange County's Haven soon expanding to the former Brix 42 space on De Lacey, and Intelligentsia across the street, Old Town is giving Lucky Baldwin some gastropub competition.
