Ashland Hill is much more than just your typical “outdoor bar.” They are opened for brunch, lunch, and dinner every single day, but the real fun takes place from 3pm-6pm Thursday through Saturday when their outdoor beer garden is open for social hour. Here, you can sip on a selection of 16 different draft beer taps and enjoy your company.

Bar 1886 is located behind the historic Raymond Restaurant in Pasadena, California. Here, you are going to have a night filled with the best of the best in terms of booze and high class food. My only recommendation in saying this is that you make sure to budget accordingly before heading here for a casual summer night out with your friends.
