WineFlights took me to “RedWhite+Bluezz” in Pasadena. Bluezz is bringing the sexy to the wine drinking experience.
Vibe: My first visit to RedWhite+Bluezz was a chance encounter after work. At first glance it looks like a casual bistro with a street front patio. Then you step into a softly lit room; see the white table clothes, rich furniture and hear the live jazz being played and you KNOW you’re in for a treat.
Vino: At Bluezz you can choose from a variety of wine flights with unique themes. I selected the “Real Characters” flight that featured three interesting reds; a Tempranillo, Pinot Noir and Neprica.
Of course I loved the combination of the flight, allowing me to experience Spain, France and Italy within a few sips.
Besides the pairing, I appreciated that Bluezz provided a tasting sheet that listed each wine with room to jot down notes. All wine bars should do this. Seriously!
Vittles: It was dinner time for this visit, I selected the wedge Cesar salad, Kobe burger and sweet potato fries and let me say it was delish!!! (Tip: The burger was on the large side, I would suggest you share and order extra fries.) Besides dinner options, there are plenty of tapas and cheese plates to pair with your wine of choice.
Valet: Parking is so convenient you have to stop. There is street metered parking right outside Bluezz and larger structure across the street.
Value: The wine flights cost was about what you would expect and the food was at the mid-price range, but worth every cent.
Vote: I have been back to this wine bar since my first visit. Bluezz is perfect to relax with some friends or Sunday brunch with a date. You can’t lose with this place and I’m sure you will find a new vino to try.
