About us

Tucked away in Pasadena is a little craftsman house with history.
Built over 100 years ago, it’s been a family home, a post-Prohibition liquor store and a myriad of modern businesses. The only consistency is the timelessness of the house and the stories it contains, as it’s reinvented once again into a neighborhood gathering place. Magnolia House is a hideaway for those in the know – offering specialty coffee, unique craft cocktails and a small plate menu from around the world. Come in through our gate and take a seat at Magnolia House.
“The problem with the world is that everyone
is a few drinks behind.”
The perfect drink should embody The Good Life—something sweet, a dash of bitterness and generous comfort.

Private Events


Our lounge area is complete with two cushy wrap-around couches, four small copper tables, and plenty of quirky artwork.  It’s the perfect setting for a cocktail-style mixer or party and can accommodate up to 20 guests comfortably.

To book a private event, please submit a request below or call us at 626.584.1126 during normal business hours. All requests will receive a response within 24 hours. We look forward to having you at our house soon!


Reservations are only available for private events in our lounge and during brunch service (every Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 2pm).
