Welcome to an outdoor chain store mall with a supermarket and a bunch of restaurants (mostly chains again) and my favorite thing ever *rolls*eyes* paid parking.... grrrrrrrr

Pro Tip: You can get parking for free for up to 2 hours if you visit a store or find the free validation machine at the top of the escalator.

Occasionally you can take advantage of the parking here if you go next store to the ice rink and get a cheaper price (unless you find free) parking around the rink. They wont let you park in the lot here if you are headed to the Pasadena convention center though...

The stores cover all kinds of stuff like shoes, clothing, wino painting (yeah you ladies know what I mean, i know), and eclectic knick knacks. The restaurants are sometimes so so and sometimes horrible (islands). haha

None the less, this place isnt a great stop most of the time to me, but the theater does help make it a destination spot. Enjoy it if you go, but you wont hardly ever find me here.

Paseo is pretty with some stores and restaurants. There's not a lot of options or variety of shop and restaurants. The architecture is very nice and you can enjoy a stroll around it.

What a joke this place being called a parking structure. There is no structure here. When it gets busy and it's packed, the managers or someone is posted at each entry gate to direct you to to across and exit to Green Street. They want you to fill up that other structure across the way. So I cannot go to the parking spot where that other person came out and is in the exit gate leaving the structure?

No matter what validation you get expect to pay for parking. What is the point of having it validated, because it is a lesser charge than the full charge if you had forgotten or lost your ticket? You must have the same system and design as The Grove. No matter where you go and validate, you would have to pay for your parking. Yes, I know it is only $2 but some parking structures allow for 90 minutes. Fine, I'm talking about going to see a movie and getting that ticket stamped but you still have to pay $2. I already paid over $10 for a movie ticket. Beer is not on happy hour and neither is the tub of popcorn you just bought. Stop nickelling and diming patrons to death. I don't know how the residents deal with the parking here but I would hate to have to drive to the bottom floor just to enter a gate.

Outdoor mall with a somewhat limited selection in the number of retailers, but there is an Arclight movie theater, which is the primary reason why I visit this location.

This mall either you like it or hate it. It does good decent selection of retails. Their parking is ok at best; it is free up to certain time with validation. If you going there at night, you might able to find spot in the City Hall which is free and no more worry about the time limit of validation.

The most stood out in this mall is that they got the famous and of the best theater in L.A. Arclight Cinema definite a must visit if you never been to one, a different movie experience that you not used to. There is also good sized event venue called noor which is pretty nice, been to a yelp event there and love it. This mall do got a lot to offer and it is across from the Pasadena Convention Center and short walk from old town with its tons of restaurant and clothing stores. Many vendor closed its door here in recent year that included Macy and Gelsons, this free up many parking spot. The future of this mall is a question since many vendor are struggle despite is in a good location.

$2.00 for four hours if you validate at the movie theater at the arclight. They have nice premiere screenings so it gets packed quite easily and it becomes hard to find parking. Look for the bottom lower level for parking if you cant find any on the level where you came in.

The interior of Paseo Colorado is beautiful and a great representation of Pasadena as a historic town. There’s a fountain with seats to lounge on and a little courtyard area where you will often find musicians performing. However, I am disappointed in the shop selections here. Even the Macy’s is closing for some reason, which leaves one less store here. There are many parking structures for this mall, with 2 hours free with validation.

The Paseo is an outdoor mall with a better set of stores and restaurants. I mostly go there for the movie theater.

Hit or Miss...

The stores I love:
Bath & Body Works
Q
Gossip
Starbucks

Parking is free for two hours validation. Woot.

I like how pretty this place is. It's all outdoors and they have pretty fountains and during Christmas... a beautiful tree. The lights are beautiful.

They even have the chalk walk here every year. So pretty.

I want to live in these apartments but they are so expensive. I love the stores and the area. This is a pretty place to chill before going to Old Town. I wish there were more stores I shop in tho... like H& M (old town), Victoria's Secret (Old town), Forever 21 (Old town), Urban Outfitters (old town)... because there is ACTUAL parking here.
