Before any of these Johnny come Latelys made it on the LA beer scene Lucky Baldwins was THE PLACE on this side of town and the next decent place was Fathers Office way away in Sanata Monica and there was nothing in between.

Yeah the lines aren't the cleanest and yeah the food isn't the best but the tap list is outrageously good and the vibe is authentic and cool.

Luckys is still one of a handful of top notch beer destinations and should not be missed by anyone passing by or near the Pasadena area.

Highly recommended.

First time here, as well as the Downtown area of Pasadena. Very Hipster around, but this Place was behind the scenes. Very small inside, but cool layout. Outside seating as well, which is nice. The selection was very nice. Pliny, Blind pig, Rasputin on Nitro, Trappistes 10. That should be enough to back up the statement right there. Service was fast and beer prices were average. Didn't Get a chance to try the food, but someone ordered some fries that smelled delicious. This place is pretty far from where I stay, but I love the inside and atmosphere.

I have liked this place a lot in the past few years. One of the few places I've been to that has had as many as 3-4 Russian River beers on tap at the same time, lots of good events, etc. HOWEVER, things change.

Most ales are served in a shaker glass which IF filled to the rim is 16 oz. but if there is 1/2 to 3/4 inch of head you are getting 12 oz. and at $8 a "pint" there are better places for a session. The selection brings me back for 1 now and then but no longer a place to stay.
