A remarkable corner site in Pasadena’s Old Town district, the purpose-built destination space is built over two floors in a historical listed building on Arroyo Boulevard. Result of a major retrofit, Ix Tapa is a contemporary sports bar incorporating colorful nuances of Ixtapa’s coastline in a theater-like setting with modern furniture and light fixtures. Consisting of two bars, multiple dining spaces, lounge and a dance floor, the modern, multi-faceted venue has a distinctly Latin-inspired feel that avoids clichés.
