Old Pasadena Gastropub

Edwin Mills by Equator is a gastropub that can only be accessed through on of the historic alleyways of Old Pasadena. The structure was built in 1894, it began as the China Palace. In the following 120 years, the location has housed a thriving marketplace, a stable, a mechanic shop, a storage space, and the popular Equator Café. Equator has evolved from coffee shop and hookah bar to internet café, and now a gastropub. The space is filled with art, its bartenders craft quality cocktails, and its kitchen produces a new American menu.

Edwin Mills

Edwin Mills takes its name from the roads intersecting at its door: Mills Place and Edwin Alley, both named in the late nineteenth century to honor Pasadena entrepreneurs.
