T. Boyle's Tavern
Time Out says
Located in the heart of Old Town Pasadena, T Boyle's offers a welcome break from the area's overpacked chain bars. Enjoy live music from local bands, sip on over 20 beers on tap (pair with typical bar food items like fish and chips, burgers, wings and quesadillas) or watch the UCLA and USC games on one of the 13 flatscreen TVs and the giant 8'x10' screen.
