Foursquare Tips

  • With its vintage-chic furnishings, communal seating options and inviting wood bar -- sure to be stocked with the finest of spirits -- 1886 will be a crowd pleaser.
  • Featured in LA Weekly's "L.A.'s Best Cocktails: Our 55 favorites and where to find them." (Click 'More Info')
  • You haven't had a true beer cocktail if you haven't had one made by Brady Wiese!
  • It's good that Marcos Tello is still consulting here. There are aged cocktails, spirits served neat and some spectacular presentations. Consider the BBC, a basil-infused collins.
  • Awesome Massachusetts oyster
  • Sidecar and Dark n Stormy are delicious.
  • For an uber Sazerac ask for the off menu Ursulines with Cafe during Monde infused rye, demerara sugar and Creole bitters. Amazing.
  • FYI: They went to the Buffalo Trace distillery and made their own 1886 batch.
  • Try the Smoking Jacket! XO - Nanmonster
  • Tater tots w onion dip & dim sum shrimp toast are the perfect food to go w your drinks here.
  • Great bar, ask for the Smoking Jacket, it's not on the cocktail menu but they'll make it for you.
  • Try the Roasted Lamb Necks & Afghan Bread - This was awesome!!!!
  • My favorite cocktails in the Pasadena area.
  • Featured in '10 Cinco de Mayo Alternatives to the Margarita'
  • Marcos & his team create and make beautiful cocktails. This Spring try the Crushed Strawberry Fizz, Ursulines Breakfast or Southern Belle.
  • Get a Rye Sour! You won't regret it :)
  • Marcos Tello and Aidan Demarest have created an outstanding cocktail list, including the excellent Honey Nut Old Fashioned and the Staten Island.
  • Happy hour is great, 4-7 and half off bar bites and drinks.
  • Fireplaces are trending this week, and 1886 has the perfect hearth to cozy up to with specialty cocktail. You can't go wrong with a Moscow Mule, but don't overlook their signature Smoking Jacket.
  • The drinks are great but it can be tough to get the attention of servers, who also work the dining rooms.
