It’s official, we have opened the doors at our new digs at The Commons in Pasadena! We had an amazing time at our Grand ReOpening! Thanks again to everyone who came out to shop and celebrate with us (keep an eye out for photos from the event, coming soon!)
Since we happen to be the new girl in town (or in The Commons to be exact) we thought it might be fitting to introduce you to our neighbors! We’ve had the pleasure of getting to know them and we wanted to give you all the opportunity to experience these great local businesses in our new neighborhood. This week I’ll start with Drybar (who is new to town just like us), Lemonade and The Cheese Store of Pasadena.
Our next door neighbor (literally!), Drybar opened their first salon in Brentwood, CA in 2010. Their concept is simple, “No cuts. No color. Just blowouts.” For only $35, regardless of hair length or style, clients can get a wash and their choice of a blowout in eight different “looks” off their “bar” menu. Their simple message has allowed creator Alli Webb to open up over 15 locations across the country and to FINALLY bring this fabulous “bar” to Pasadena! This is their biggest location to date! Named one of the top “100 Brilliant Ideas of 2010” by Entrepreneur Magazine, Drybar is the perfect addition to a day of shopping at B.Luu!
The Cheese Store of Pasadena is another one of our favorites. They truly have a passion for cheese and carry hundreds of imported artisanal cheeses from across the globe. Their staff or “cheese enthusiasts” are extremely knowledgeable and are always on hand to help familiarize you with any of their products.
They also carry any and everything you can think of to pair with cheese like gourmet pastas, numerous brands of olive oil, cold cuts and cheese accessories. We were lucky enough to feature some of their amazing cheeses at our Grand ReOpening. My favorites would have to be, Fromager d’Affinois, Bucheron and Euphoria Gouda.
Last but not least, Lemonade. I’ve been a fan of this place for years, so I was excited that our new location would be right across from them. They too have a simple concept, “Seasonal Southern California Comfort Food in a fast-casual cafeteria setting.” Usually when you hear the word cafeteria, good food doesn’t come to mind. But they use fresh seasonal ingredients and the café itself is bright and welcoming.
The menu rotates daily with an array of different bites to please the palette. They feature everything from stewed short ribs to watermelon radish and ahi tuna.
All three of these businesses are the perfect addition to a day at The Commons. Next time you are shopping at B.Luu take some time out to visit our new neighbors! I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed. 🙂
