Be our guests for an evening of art and culture as the City’s premier arts organizations and museums open their doors free of charge for ArtNight Pasadena.

Here at PMH you’ll enjoy our sumptuous new exhibition Royals of Pasadena, as we celebrate the 100th Rose Queen®, who will reign over the Tournament of Roses® on January 1, 2018. Our special guests, Gympy Jambo! will provide the perfect musical complement to the exhibit’s timeline of Royal Court fashion from the 1940s onward. Inspired by Stephane Grapelli and Django Reinhardt, Gympy Jambo! is a guitar and violin duo performing a wide range of musical styles including gypsy jazz, classical, tango, film score and popular song.

If the hunger pangs hit, Slammin Sliders’ will be in our parking lot throughout the evening. Click on the image for their mouth-watering menu!
