Cool mall – I was excited when this mall was built. A new place to hangout. It's not a big mall with lots of stores. So if you're planning on a shopping spree, this might not be the place to go. But if you just want to stroll and look around, this is a very nice place. Not crowded, few restaurants and stores that range from expensive to just ok. It's a place where you can meet with friends and have coffee and talk. A place where you can just chill and relax.
Greta place to spend time with family!!!!! – Great restaurants nice stores, PARKING employees were wary helpful and nice, we are wary pleased after all with Paseo Colorado and beautiful City of Pasadena.
Great For A Nice Evening – I was thrilled when the horrible old mall was torn down and this was built. I loved it when it first opened and have been back at least once a year since. I probably would never go here for a "must have" shopping trip; I prefer strolling around and poking into stores as the mood strikes. There are vendor carts in front of shops and plenty of places to eat and drink within walking distance. Go at night when it's filled with lights and ambience. Dine at PF Chang's, grab a beer at the Yard House or a cup of coffee at Starbuck's. Stores in the mall are mostly chain stores but it's still fun to poke around.
Maybe I'm just nostalgic – Now, I like a good outdoor mall just like anyone else, and I don't deny this mall is beautiful to look at. I don't like the lack of variety or exhorbitant prices at this place though. In fact, it makes me miss the old Pasadena mall TERRIBLY because it's where I spent the bulk of my adolescence! Imagine, I basically learned how to shop in the Pasadena mall, and now, in its place, there's this lovely disappointment that limits my ability to exercise those skills. What a pity.
A Mediterranean-style village with shops, restaurants and apartments rises from the rubble of the Plaza Pasadena mall. – In Short
Terra cotta tile roofs, storefronts and fountains with a distinctly Mediterranean theme have replaced the former Plaza Pasadena mall on Colorado Boulevard. Developers of the new, open-air shopping complex have also re-opened Garfield Avenue to pedestrians. Thinking beyond the traditional mall, this "urban village" will eventually offer 380 apartments in addition to the more than 60 shops, eight restaurants, full-scale gym, luxury spa, 14-screen multiplex, and Gelson's market.
Not a good place anymore . . . – What use to be a trendy spot has gone completely downhill. The customer service was awful in just about every store and restaurant we went to. There were a lot of closed stores (including the restaurant that were planning to go to). The mall was pretty empty, which I found very unusual for a weekend. I agree that you should stick to your local mall or venture into Old Towne Pasadena. This place isn't worth stopping for.
Paseo Colorado – This mall has a very good Macys store. And a few good resturants. However, there is many independant stores in this mall which tend to be expensive.
Paseo is OK – Innovative design, outdoor setting, shopping, dinning. Good for hangout if you live there. Not for serious shopping though, not too many varieies. But if you have some brand in mind that you needed to shop for then maybe you will like it. Also they do have DSW (brand such as Coach or BCBG or MAC etc) the parking is pretty easy to find but quite annoying when you have to pay $4 and they don't have much to offer.
One stop shopping – This place is wonderful - if you live here, you never have to leave home - there is a grocery store, a gym, a movie theater, fabulous dining and great stores! Plus, you can walk to Old Town Pasadena.
Definitely worth checking out!
Something the city needed – We all have to admit, that even though the Paseo, is "not for everyone" it's definately alot better than what the Pasadena Plaza was. And even though the majority of the shops are the over priced, yet high in quality, Rodeo Drive-like shops, they still have good ol' Macy's and stores like Gossip and Reference. I thought it was great, especially for an out-doors mall. They have a tables to sit at, benches and fountains and occasionally live entertainment. There are tons of places to eat. They've got Amadeaus Spa and Equinox Gym. My only complaint is they charge for parking. Why? Though, you can't get free parking anywhere in Pasadena anymore, so it doesn't surprise me.
