About Us

Many folks have forgotten that pub means “public house.” Not Joe Griffin.


Ever since 2012, Joe has been building a beautiful “public house” in South Pasadena. Joe’s pub has more to it than being the local watering hole.


Instead, it is a gathering place rich with substance and the hum of busy conversation, a breeding ground for talent, a hub for people to come in contact with each other.


The menu goes hand in hand with the ambiance of the pub having traditional Irish fare, that is heartfelt and real. In short, Joe’s pub is dedicated to the public it serves. 

“I want the pub to be where the community comes around and celebrates together. It’s an extension of my living room. I want to welcome everyone who comes in, to join in and have a great time together.”

“This pub is a gem in south pasadena. The owner, Joseph, is warm, friendly and most accommodating. He has created a true neighborhood spot. The food was delicious. The staff attentive and friendly. They couldn’t do enough to ensure an enjoyable experience. Go early if you like soft background music – later for a live band. All in all – a fun evening either way.”

This bar really nails a great vibe. Amazing music, beautiful aesthetics, and a friendly staff is what makes this bar special. Every night of the week there is something to enjoy. Recently they have been hosting a chess club/social, which I have recommended to everyone regardless of your skill.

I love this place. This is a great place to converse with friends over a pint of beer or a cocktail and the fact that the place has no TV’s is a big plus.
