Located in an industrial stretch of western Glendale, The San Fernando comes out of nowhere, but is the kind of weird neighborhood bar we didn’t know we needed so badly. The space is modern, but with very few frills, and the drinks are as affordable as they come. Couple that with bartenders who’ll actually talk to you, commuter trains rolling by the windows every now and then, and a tiny stage in the back with nightly live music, and you begin to feel like you’re in another time and place completely. And we certainly aren’t complaining about that.
