Lucky Baldwin's-Pasadena: Lousy

have been going here for years for the belgian beer festival, as well as other times, and have tried not to see the slow decline of the place but tonight was just too much. The place smells like a frat house (it is plain distracting and foul), the lines for tap beers are not cleaned often enough which leads to metallicy tasting beers (although this could be the glassware), the food is okay at best, and the music is just plain rotten (a decent jukebox that is sprinkled with nice stuff but too much silence and too much lovey dovey). the service is the only thing not worth slamming-the staff is always pretty nice and knowledgable. i will try the sierra madre location because a beer bar with great belgians is tough to find in la, but i will avoid the pasadena location from now on....
