1886 Bar at The Raymond
Location: Pasadena, CA
First opened in 2010, The Raymond’s 1886 Bar program continuously evolves as our bar team has created a solid foundation, utilizing classic techniques. Guests can expect each and every Martini, Manhattans, Old Fashioned, Sidecar, and Sour to be prepared with perfection, freshly squeezed juices and hand-cut block ice.
1886 boasts a repertoire of over 600 off-menu house cocktails. Our cocktail list highlights seasonal and regional ingredients, a broad range of spirits, and playful presentations. If you don’t see exactly what you are thirsty for on our cocktail list, ask our bar team for our “dealer’s choice” and let us create the perfect cocktail for you, based on your personal tastes and preferences.
Over the years, 1886 has received acclaimed reviews and write-ups from print and online publications such as the Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly, Food & Wine Magazine, CLASS Magazine, Imbibe, PUNCH, Eater LA, Thrillist, THIRSTY, Thirsty In LA, The Tasting Panel, and many more.
Jesus Gomez, The Raymond’s resident bartender, works to keep their craft cocktail menu exciting by revamping it twice a year. His dedication and study have given him an “encyclopedic knowledge of the history, techniques, and ingredients that go into a proper cocktail”.
