Although the red door is exclusive, getting in is totally manageable with the right attire. Very classy environment with a great crowd. The drinks are strong so watch out that you don't have too many because they're not too keen on drunks.

I will never go back to this place. They turned away quite a few people in front of my group. Our whole group got in with no problems, but they did make comments on our guys shoes (some had on Vans), which is not a problem. Dress shoes

What a great bar to go to and be out doors and see Houston at night. They have a bar on the second floor that is all open and one downstairs that has comfy furniture to lounge on. Full bar. Always a great time!!!

I rarely get on these reviews, for I'm a person who simply does not return to the establishment if i have been repeatedly offered bad service or subpar food or drinks. but red door has a different problem. you can disagree with me but i only speak from a personal experience.

i'm an asian male in my 30's. i do not wear jeans around my butt, wear a hat sideways, or whatever the prevailing stereotype of a young asian may be these days. i was denied entrance first time back in 2005, when my asian friend and i were denied for no reasons. we both work at the same restaurant. he told me one night that the door guy came into our upscale restaurant, so my buddy confronted him in the restroom. my friend was not hostile, he simply said, "dude we work in the same industry. how can you blatantly deny us?" the door guy, now apologetic told us that he has "guidelines" passed down from management.

the second time, i was with a female asina friend. even though we were just co-workers, anyone would think we were on a date. different door guy lets her in and stares at my valid Texas drivers lincence and asks me if i had another ID. i would have had my US Marine Corps military ID but it was stolen in a robbery few months before. The audacity of the guy to let the girl in and deny me entrance? like we were supposed to say, ok..you have fun i'll wait outside. as i looked to my right, there were 5 asian guys standing around while, white people were ushered right in. the only times i had no trouble getting in was with my Caucasian friends. i remember i was running late and one of the i called one f the girls who knew the manager and she came out and got me in. why do i go back? cause when most of my friends pick a place, i do not like to be the party pooper esp crying racism. and when i do get in, i generally have a good time. the bartenders are friendly and i usually leave pleasant.

i usually don't play the race card. and i will be the first to admit that younger asian guys do not have the best reputation in clubs (i.e. fights, shootings) but after serving this country in the Marine Coprs, it was disheartening to be a victim of blatant racism. so to all the minorities out there, excluding hot chicks, prepare ahead and make sure you come with an entourage with at least 50% caucasians, or know someone who knows someone inside. i guarantee you it increases your chances of getting in.

Pros: nice atmosphere once you get in, open rooftop patio

Cons: racist door douches

.

Great bar - You can order beer, martinis etc. Up and down stairs area - i like the upstairs outdoor if the weather is nice. Very cool atmosphere and great staff. Young professionals crowd.

My husband and I went to the Red Door last night for the first time for my birthday. We had no problems getting in, but to be comprehensive in my review, I should mention that I am 5'10'' flat-footed, and was over 6 feet tall with my heels on, thin, blonde hair and was wearing a very revealing top that showed off my assets. That said, I was hoping for a more attractive crowd if entry is selective. There were attractive men, but most of the females were average. NOT ugly, but I guess I was expecting something else. My poor husband jokingly complains that he always brings the "eye candy." No big deal, though, and we will return on our next visit to Houston. The bar staff were super-friendly and the drinks were VERY reasonably priced compared to most other places. The view upstairs was quite nice and the heat lamps were certainly appreciated on a slightly chilly, windy night. It ensures that I will wear something hot again on my next visit! The bathrooms were clean, too. We chose to valet our car because it was so cheap.

While it is unfortunate that some are denied entrance at the will and temperament of a door-guy (at any place), I think a proper selection of patrons is necessary to maintain the image it creates. I did see a couple of African-Americans there and they weren't very attractive and classy looking (but not trashy looking, either) and they made it in, but this statement is not to lessen the validity of others who have been denied entrance because of the color of their skin. I'm just making an observation.

I've never had any problems getting in at this place. I'm West Indian with a very rich dark skin tone and have never been told NO. I've been allowed in completely on my own, with my boyfriend or as part of a small group. So don't be so discourage not to go because in my opinion its a great place.

I'm not sure about this racial profiling thing. I'm a Hispanic 28 college educated female who dresses up to date & showed up with my husband (he's Anglo but I doubt that's why I was admitted in). We dont always get gussied up either. We've shown up at some in the places in the village with jeans & casual shirts 9not t-shirts though). At Red Door we were accompanying my husband's male friends who were all dressed in jeans & not Anglo, nor do they "appear" to be. So I am doubtful that one Anglo person in our 5 person party is what got us in. If gender or race were n issue I doubt 4 ethnic minorities in one group would have gotten in. It was a fun atmosphere, attractive crowd, good music. We didn't notice anyone else getting ahead of us in line either. And those are things I pay attention to. Sometimes some people can put on nice clothes but still look rough around the edges.or are just physically unattractive to the door guy. Not fair since money is money but it happens. I continue to recommend the place too.

If you are Asian , Black or Brown, do yourself a favor and instead of spoiling your evening at the Red Door head out to any other place.....and i mean any other ........this place will give you a hard time at the door and spoil your evening all altogether...... Some users have written good reviews ( you will notice they are single girls or white) i also doubt they are real customers . If you are an extremely good looking single chick who is ready to flirt with the nit wit door man and show a little cleavage you will get right in.......but if you are a couple of color. stay away , they will turn you down for the slightest reason possible..,....the reason i was given my friend who was visiting form out of town had an out of state ID... they asked us to show an alternate ID.......i don?t know what an alternate Id would do if they don?t accept an government issues ID...........we were very well dressed.....( i have never been turned down form any of the best clubs across US except this one)....but unfortunately we are not white.....they not only tuned us down i was totally embarrassed in front of my guests. save you self some grief. ....oh did I mention a white girl standing right behind me with a Florida state ID went straight in . No questions asked. ....I also request if you are a self respecting white person, do not patronize such enterprises.--

Adding a Response to Criskel --
The Club has to have a certain number of non white people to be able to not get charged for profiling. IF you get here early you are good as they need to fill their quota, or a night when they don?t have too many colored people show up. ....(probably since they were all turned down).....you just helped them continue to save their AS* from a law suite. .......well I don?t know about rough around the edges...... i guess the very educated door man can decide that. Here?s a test just ask your boyfriend?s friends to try to get in first without you ......and you hang back and watch.

Pros: None

Cons: Epitome of Racial Profiling

My friends and I never have a problem getting into Red Door and we are asian so I don't see what the deal is with all this racial profiling. I always have a good time here except for the occasional sleezy old european wanna be men hitting on us. The music is definately good although I wished the played a little more hip hop cause sometimes it gets tiring having to dance to house music.

Loved the atmosphere.... loved the vibe! Gorgeous people drinks were great as well. Music... great! As for discrimination.... it's a business... if they do not want you there.. then you do NOT need to be there! Who wants to go to or be in a place where you are unwanted?

I'm African American, and I got in with no problems at all.... Running and opening a bar/club is difficult now keeping a club running, is even more difficult. They are obviously supporting people who support them and have a pretty decent if not affluent clientele! There is a reason that the Red Door is popular and still running strong.

PS: The view is AmAzing for Houston and the Patio is one of a kind for Houston's night life.

I have lived in Houston for over 30 years and have never experienced such blatant discrimination as what I encountered at the Red Door (on May 30, 2008). I must wholeheartedly disagree with the previous review stating that the Red Door's policies are similar to those at other large city clubs. I have been living in LA for the past 4 years and have never encountered such selective and arbitrary use of ridiculous policies. My husband and I stood in a short line to enter the club. I watched as the manager ushered approximately 10 white males into the establishment. He did NOT check their identification at all. He simply smiled and waived them in. When my husband and I approached the front of the line, he asked for our IDs, which was fine. We currently reside in CA and showed him our CA license. He then asked if we had any other form of ID or some other card with our pictures on it. I was confused. To get on an airplane, you simply need your driver's license! If a driver's license is suitable for any other transaction or government agency then why is it not accepted at the Red Door? He then stated that it is a club policy to require an additional form of ID for out of state licenses. I have never heard of such a ridiculous policy in all of my life. Furthermore, the purpose of checking IDs at the door was to keep underage people out of the club. Neither my husband nor I looked under the age of 21. We are both well in our 30s. So, then what was the purpose? To have the ability to selectively choose who they want to enter their establishment, not because of what they have on but because of how they look---racial profiling. I do not use this term loosely. This is an establishment that no one should patronize. I plan to make sure that none of my friends or colleagues give any of their money to the Red Door. We cannot tolerate a place that selectively enforces a "rule" under the guise of "club policy" to discriminate against anyone.

Shockingly DISCRIMINATORY club that doesn't even attempt to hide it. I went there on a Saturday night with 2 other Asian friends but one of my friends could not get in because he needed "another form of ID." The bouncers made absolutely no attempt at explaining what was wrong with his ID.

And as for why you see the occacional Asian person there, they do let in Asians but after a certain quota, they start turning away people. I don't blame the bouncers b/c this discriminatory policy is clearly driven by the owner/manager of Red Door (also owner of the Drake).

IF YOU'RE ASIAN, HAVE SOME SELF-RESPECT AND NEVER GO TO RED DOOR OR THE DRAKE AGAIN.

No Colored?s Allowed

I visited this bar last year in October for a friend?s birthday party. There were 4 ladies in our group, 1 Caucasian (the birthday girl), 1 Hispanic and 2 black. We got to the front of the line and they allowed my Caucasian friend and Hispanic friend in. When he got to me he told me that was not me on my ID. He proceeded to tell me to get another form of ID. I asked him like what and he said something like a bankcard with a picture on it. I told him that I didn?t have that and stepped to the side because I was heading to my car to go somewhere black people were allowed.

My other friends came out the club and tried to challenge him. I told my friend that is okay it is obvious he does not want me in his club and that is fine.

My attire for the night was: Guess blue jean halter dress that came just below my knees, 3 inch brown pumps, and brown handbag to match with silver accessories. My hair is cut to my shoulders and is one color.

Is this trashy attire?

I have been to this club plenty of times before and each visit is with a diverse group. That was the first time that I have had such an experience. Not only the Red Door but there is a few clubs in midtown which are not color friendly, however I will not list them until I get the correct names.

I must say I was in shock because I didn?t think I would experience this behavior in 2007. I thought that was over I thought we could party together. I have no problems going out in Clear Lake. I have a very diverse group of friends!

P.S. I am sending this to all News Media and Radio Media. As well as all my friend and associates who ask me about the Red Door.

I have been a regular at Red Door since it opened in 2003 and attended both their 3 year and recent 5 year anniversary parties for regulars that included an open bar for the night to say thanks for the business. There is a reason that this place is still open and doing the business that it does and that is because they know how to run a bar. Having a strict door policy does not mean a place is practicing racism. Their policies are no different than most clubs in big cities (i.e. N.Y., Chicago, Miami, LA) and are put in place for a reason. In the 5 years that I have been frequenting the Red Door I have seen plenty of different races there and have gone there with plenty of my black friends. There even has been a time when I was not expecting to go there and showed up to meet some friends that where there and was not let in because I had tennis shoes on and I do know the "owners". SO WHAT!! I live in the area and went home and changed. So please everyone quit whining and throwing out the race card when something does not go your way. I love this place and would and will recommend it to all my friends wether they are black, hispanic, asian, indian, green, purple or red! I will also tell them how they should dress because it is strict and I am happy about that. So for everyone that wants to wear what they want go to the Richmond Strip! Thanks Red Door for being such a fun hangout with beautiful women and I hope to be at the 10 year anniversary.

Cons: They close at 2am

This place is terrible. It was so sad to see how much the door man was discriminating against african americans. I was embarrased to even be standing in line so I left. I will never go back. I will not support this type of establishment who is so arrogant about turning people away because of their color. The door guy is terribly rude and almost seemed like he was enjoying turning every black person away. He was proud of what he got to do... very sad.

I have just returned from a night out that included a stop at the Red Door. As a general review, this 2 level club was ok. They had a large downstairs bar and a decent upstairs bar and the bartending staff were refreshing fast and responsive to patrons and I tipped them well. The drinks were strong and reasonably priced.
I'm a white guy and presented with an asian and a white girl and we were received by the doormen without comment or incident. Inside the club, it was a mix of maybe 70% white/30% every other ethnic background. The music was generic techno/dance but with no designated dance floor, my girlfriend and I kept bumping into people going to and from the bar.
I did notice the doormen turn away 5 decently dressed black guys while allowing several white patrons into the club. After the club closed, I ran into them in the parking lot, and while they appeared mildly intoxicated, they were no more so and probably less so then some of the bar's patrons. Their manner of dress was not significantly different from the patrons inside the bar and they appeared reasonably polite and articulate. They stated that the reason why they were refused entrance was that their pants were too "baggy". They indeed were wearing baggy jeans but not excessively so....and no-one's underwear was showing. One member of the group was actually wearing a tie and vest. They did not appear angry about being denied entrance to the club but they had a "whaddya gonna do" kind of attitude. Based on this observation, I think there is grounds for the accusations that the club has an arbitrary door policy. It is possible that they were inappropriate with the doorman and rightfully were refused entrance, I wasn't there when they presented...but I don't think I will be going to that club again. The days for peckerwood politics have come and gone. i understand that you have to keep the "riffraff" out but that's what cover charges are for.

I have just returned from a night out that included a stop at the Red Door. As a general review, this 2 level club was ok. They had a large downstairs bar and a decent upstairs bar and the bartending staff were refreshing fast and responsive to patrons and I tipped them well. The drinks were strong and reasonably priced.
I'm a white guy and presented with an asian and a white girl and we were received by the doormen without comment or incident. Inside the club, it was a mix of maybe 70% white/30% every other ethnic background. The music was generic techno/dance but with no designated dance floor, my girlfriend and I kept bumping into people going to and from the bar.
I did notice the doormen turn away 5 decently dressed black guys while allowing several white patrons into the club. After the club closed, I ran into them in the parking lot, and while they appeared mildly intoxicated, they were no more so and probably less so then some of the bar's patrons. Their manner of dress was not significantly different from the patrons inside the bar and they appeared reasonably polite and articulate.

Racial club - Saturday I had an issue with this club. They door guy took one look at my ID and stated that he didn't like it and wanted other ID so I showed him my school ID and work ID he still didn't let me in. I was with my fiancee, her sisters and my friend, I was the only Negro in our midtown-Houston-styled group and I got turned away. For the 15 mins that I was looking for other ID and asking the cop at the door to confirm my "Drivers License" was real six other black people were turned away because of their ID, and one drink white girl who was really drunk. This is obviously racial, even though the door man was a minority appeared Caucasian through, he was turning always black people at the door.
*** Aside from that this club really isn't too great once you do get in, I've been in it before but ALWAYS having some type of issue at the door and having someone with me state "He's with me." But once in, there really not much in this club. It's not set for people to mingle or dance unless you get past the small stairs to get a spot on the patio where you can just stand and talk.
For a much better time I'd suggest Pub Fiction, Howl at the Moon, or The Roof for a stylish time. That night we went to the Tipsy Clover and had a great time.

The first time we tried to get into this place about a year ago, the so-called "manager" did not let us in because the gentleman that was with us did not have his glasses on in his ID and in person he did have them on, so he proceeded to take them of the the "manager" stated he needed a second form of ID. Whatever.....we didn't get in, not a big deal. So we went to PUB FICTION....where they are always welcome in. Second attempt, we had no problem getting in. Once we were in there I thought to myself.....eh, not missing out on much in here!!! the music was a little whack at some point. This past weekend we tried to get in again, but this time I was not let in due to the fact that my drivers license was cut up at the top because the DPS cut it for renewal and I tried showing him the temporary permit and he stated.....i'm sorry we don't take any paperwork I going to need a second form of ID with a picture on it. BLAH, BLAH, BLAH!!! why would I have tried to steal somebody's ID with a picture of a person that looks identically to me and still have the temporary permit. But then I started to think, well maybe there were too many hispanics in our group of 10. So we just went to TIPSY CLOVER (right around the corner) where the nice door guy didn't even ask to view my temporary permit he was like " you don't even need to show me that, just come on in and have fun"
Please take notes of the following if you would like to get into this place.
*you must dress extremely provacative.....(sorry can't say nasty words)
* you must flirt with the doorguy, making him feel like he'll be taking you home that night*
*Make sure you are the only non-caucasion person in your group I think the ratio is 10 caucasion: 1 non-caucasion.
I definately do not recommend this place, because once you are in there "YOUR NOT MISSING OUT ON ANYTHING THERE ARE WAY BETTER PLACES IN THE AREA"

I have been to this club twice and is a good place for average "ugly" and pretentious people.
Although the club decor looks old and cheap, the drinks and music are decent. I've been to great clubs in NYC, Miami, LA, London, Paris and Mexico City that have a strict door policy. Red Door has a door policy to keep their business and attract regular customers. I have seen that clubs in Houston go out of business within a year for admitting everybody into their clubs. Red Door owner's are only trying to protect their investement. It is very common to have strict door policy in other big cities.

If you're ASIAN, don't even bother to go here. The bouncers are the complete f(cking assh0lesI swear on my dead body that the bouncers have so little brain they don't even know who they are f*king!
We were a group of 7 asian women, in our late 20s and early 30s. We were in nice dresses and high heel. We went there to celebrate a friend's bachelorette's party. 6 of us went in with no issue. However, one of the bouncers decided to pick on our friend. she's 29 and very pretty. He claimed that her picture on the driver license is "purple" and she cant' get in the club. What the F*cking hell? "Purple" OR do I hear " freaking "discrimination". He clearly didn't want us to be in their club. Yeah, thanks. Like there's no better clubs we can go to. Give me a break. Whomever hire those bouncers are "d*(ks"!. ANyway, we tried to talk to the cop there and he's much useless as a piece of trash. Oh yeah, I forgot, he's being paid by "red door" owners. Duh!
SO, if you are ASIAN, give yourself some credit and do not go here. They clearly do not want us there, so give your ancestors some respect and don't spend your money at this discriminated little hole of losers!And to the owner, we were there on Saturday April 27th. I promise you I will spread my sour experience to everyone I know. And I will make sure whom ever I get to talk to will NEVER go to your business. If you even have a brain, you need to know that us ASIAN people have money and discriminating us is not a smart business move.

I am not your average hot white girl. I am not even your baddest white girl. But, I AM right up there with the flyest of all the white girls here on planet earth and I can't stand this r*cist place. I would understand if the catered to ONLY pretty boys like Johnny Depp, David Beckham, George Clooney & Brad Pitt look-a-likes but, all they have in there are a bunch of DORKY & CORNY white boys running around inside this weak club. They need guys with new style like Andre 3000 (from Outkast), Lenny Kravitz and maybe even some cool fellows like Pharrell & T.I. (They're style is more hip-hop but, they still have that edgy skateboarding look to them). The owner must have grown up in Vidor, TX or was the favorite son of a Grand Wizard. We are in 2008, whatever happened to Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. landmark speech "I have a dream"?!! This place AKA "The R*cist Door" is just as lame as the door guys, owner & patrons who goes into this sad bar should all be ashamed of themselves. Hasn't it always been the white men dressing up in white sheets cover their ugly caucasian faces, white men as serial k*llers?, white men invading other countries taking other nation's possessions (natural resources, oil, etc.)?, white men who mistreated Africans & turned them into slaves?, white men who k*lled all the Native American Indians? when do you ever hear of this cr*p happening to other ethnic people besides when the media plays their lies to the lost Americans? (ONLY when they want to go invade that nation & steal their goods). otherwise, NEVER!!! & THE LIST GOES ON about the DIRTY white boys!.. all I have to say is my b*tthole draws a better crowd than this pathetic place!

I must admit, I've always liked the Red Door, and have never had any problems until a couple of weekends ago when I went out with some of my friends, one who was black. He was not let in because his "pants were too baggy". I understand the baggy pants thing, but his pants weren't baggy! It was such a blatant lie and I was so angry at the doorman, but they just stood there and didnt care. Not only was my friend embarassed, but I am telling all of my friends about how they won't let in anyone that is not white. The review below was spot on about the "paper bag theory". Not a good way to do business.

Honestly I love this place! Which may surprise some because I'm Black. I've been here several times and never have I or any of my other Black friends been denied entrance. Until Friday, December 14th. That day one of my two friends was denied entrance because the doorman said she did not resemble the photograph on her Texas ID. I thought this was a joke! I couldn't believe that he was serious. That night after my friends and I left I tried to figure out why all my other beautiful Black female friends had been allowed in and this one hadn't. The only answer I could come up with is the "Paper Bag Test". For those of you who are unfamiliar with the "Paper Bag Test" let me explain: It's a test in which your skin color is compared to that of a paper bag. If your skin is the same as or lighter than the paper bag then you'd be considered an acceptable Negro. However if your skin is darker than that of said bag you would be considered too Black and likened to trash. It's not fair and I apologize to my friend for subjecting her to this humiliation but that's life and I don't make the rules. My advise to those minorities planning to visit the Red Door is dress to impress and establish a Plan B maybe Swivel :)

After reading the 50+ reviews about my favorite lounge/nightclub in Houston, i would love to say something:

RACE is not the same as CLASS. I am sorry for you if the doormen can smell CLASS from a mile away. It's not a matter of what color your skin is. It is about how classy and sophisticated you are. If you walk through the crowded terrace you will realize what i am talking about; you hear English, Spanish, Italian, French, and more, but the common denominator is: classy people.
Also, a Crown on the rocks is $6, whereas in other places it goes for $8.

By far this bar has to be in the top of its class/

Everything from it's intense house to the refreshing outside breeze upstairs makes this THE BAR TO BE in Houston. believe me I have been in Houston for 9 months and I LOVE IT! Easy to meet girls/guys. Excellent music. Perfectly priced drinks. AWESOME bar tenders. Gorgeous women... what else do you need???

About the crowdedness.... hey!! IT's THAT GOOD!!!!!

I would never go back to the place, nor will I ever recommend this place to any one. I have heard from people and read the reviews about how discriminatory the doormen are, but I decided to check this place out anyways, chalking up the bad press to solitary events. Boy was I wrong. Our group consisted of three Asians, and two Hispanics. The doorman didnt even bother looking at my friends ID, he glanced at his slacks and said they were too baggy. Sure, because people buy baggy slacks all the time. Im not sure it is even possible to buy baggy Hugo Boss or Banana Republic slacks. However, he did allow other white people wearing the same type of attire as my friend in without hassling them about thier clothes. We had girls in our group, and the doorman would not allow one of them in because he said she needed two forms of ID. And of course, the group of white people behind us were allowed in without a word. That pathetic doorman needs to be fired. Skip the Red Door, no one needs to be hassled or humiliated by some power hungry r*cist doorman.

Just your average mid-town club/bar... You know the drill - pay for parking, stand in line, hear the techno, go on the roof, etc. Nothing really special about this place but I guess if you're going to go with ordinary, they're better than the other ordinary places.

I went for my birthday a few months ago. As soon as we told the bartender it was my birthday, we got free drinks. Most of the other patrons were good looking, and the music was great. The view is breathtaking. And, from the parking lot, when you've heard about the view from other people who've gone, you think, "yeah right, okay, we'll see." But, it's fantastic. The drinks, the ones we paid for, weren't overpriced, and there are a couple of places in the immediate area that you can walk if you want instead of getting your car out of valet and driving elsewhere.

I went on a Saturday night around midnight and got in right away, wearing jeans and a hoodie. Our friends, dressed much nicer, were turned away about 5 minutes later because one was wearing non-athletic sneakers. The people were pretty attractive, but it's so crowded you can barely move. The bartenders appeared to be working really hard, but we decided to leave after attempting, and failing, to push our way to the bar for 15 minutes.

People complain about the doorman but he keeps the trash out. It's an elite place, not an 18+ dance club that admits anyone with a pulse. The drinks taste great and cost less than many other places but good luck finding your way to the bar. The repetitive electronic music gets old fast. It?s a great place for a young educated professional to meet people in the same financial situation. Dress your best or you won?t get in.

I went this Saturday to a friends party here. She had reservations a private area and all. Me my girlfriend and a friend showed up after everyone had gone in. We walked up told the guys at the door about the party and the asked if we were lost and if we were looking for The Red Door. We told them about the party they said we could go in but then the little guy asked my buddy for ID then let him in and my girl but he stopped me and said my pants were too long (they were just above my heel). I could tell what game he was playing so I told him i would roll them up he said he could not overlook it. Then I called my friend who was having the party. I told the doorman I had a white friend coming to vouch for me and when he did he let me right in. Nothing aganst the 2 other guys they were going to let me in but I guess that was before mini me came back from his break. Once I got inside the music was not that great the waitress was awesome she brought me serveral drinks without me having to ask and the prices were very cheap. It was crowded so that sucked but all together it was okay.When we left there were a couple of asians trying to get in and they were getting the run around as well. So it is worth going if you come with your white friends so they can vouch for you.

One evening I was enjoying a wonderful night out with a few old friends. We'd spent most of the evening at Sullivan's and decided to keep the great night going and head to Red Door. BIG MISTAKE!

We got to Red Door and the door man indicated that he could not allow us in because the guy that was with us had on baggy jeans. He was wearing a nice collard shirt, kenneth cole dress shoes to match and a pair of jeans. He was put together very nicely AND currently this is pretty standard bar/club attire for males.

Feeling helpless, we watched as the doorman allowed individuals wearing flip flops, old tattered jeans, muscle shirts, tacky dresses...and the list goes on...right in the door. What I'm saying is there were far more less "elegantly" dressed people that were going right into the club, so for him to turn us down had to be some reason other than the jeans. Furthermore, my friend's jeans weren't even baggy!

I have been to Red Door many times in the past, but I can say with conviction that I will never give this club my business again!

Lastly, this is the type of behavior that should not be condoned in 2007.

Pros: SERVICE

.

Not a bad place if you can get past the doorman. Ive seen many people get turned away by him. Inside the atmosphere is decent if you can look over the fact of it being really old. The drinks were good and worth the money. Music was a more on the trance side; not quite my cup of tea- mixture is good but not all one kind.

this 2-tiered establishment has a bumpin club downstairs and a very spacious upstairs patio that serves as an outdoor lounge - perfect place to get your groove on and then get away and mingle without yelling over loud music. it's definitely an older crowd's venue, but it won't disappoint. it caters to all preferences and offers one of the most breathtaking panoramic views of downtown.*

Red Door has a good DJ that plays some great music. It's always crowded. Lots of hot girls and, unfortunately, plenty of competition.

Everytime I go here, I have a good time. It gets crowded and sometimes it's hard to get a drink, but their patio is awesome, they play good music, and the crowd is always great there. Bartenders are good there and the line is never ridiculous. The doormen are also extremely unpretentious for a place like this.

For everybody calling the doorman a R____, get over it. They have to have that door policy or they'll go out of business. We've all seen what happens to clubs when certain groups "overrun" them, then decide to move on to the next trendy place and leave the former place to die off. Red Door consistently packs in crowds on the weekends because they have been able to avoid this. Sad, but true. I like the place because I know that there will be a crowd free of riff-raff.

I've been going to Red Door since they opened several years ago, and I've always had a good time. If you can get it, it's a fun place.

First of all, I've never had a problem getting in to the Red Door. They rarely even ask for, or look at, my ID. I dress well, am fairly good looking, and (more importantly) bring a hot girl friend(s) for bypassing lines.

That being said, the drinks are nearly toxic. At least you're getting your money's worth of liquor, but dear god... if you sip straight vodka/tequila/rum/bourbon for fun, it should be fine.

The place is usually packed, so theres no fear of a dead club.

As for the scenery/eye candy/singles? Any remotely cute girl is either there with a boyfriend, or shes working some older guy who is pretending to be rich. Big time $50,000 millionaire syndrome here. In general, its a well dressed, but unattractive crowd. Id rather see hot people in ANY kind of clothes, than ugly people in trendy clothes. Can clubs do that?

Me and my gf went to try this place out for the first time and absolutly did not like it. We did NOT have any problems with the door guys, infact they were very polite and let us right in. The bartender was great, the drinks were perfect. I would simply never go there because it was too crowded, the music was too loud for a conversation to take place.

Pros: Good looking people, Great Patio, Good drinks

The Red Door is a good time if you are looking for lots of people, and a place to strike up a conversation with a good looking stranger. The bar is al ways busy so be patient when waiting for a drink or try the upstairs bar. I have always had great service, and have never heard anyone complaind about the drinks.The dress code is perfect and people who are going out on the town should not be going up into a bar looking frumpy. This is not the place to show up at wearing a old shirt and a broke down pair of shoes. You have to dress to impress here. Overall, I love the Red Door and will continue to go back.

We went this past week and the door guy said that two of our people were not dressed properly. My friend and I later went without the other two since we were dressed appropriately and were told "we can't let you in because it's against the rules to separate groups." I have never heard such a ridiculous statement in my life! We were just people watching next door (the staff is soo sweet and the drinks are GREAT!!!) and the door guys were letting people in with flip-flops, leather pants, and cut off shorts... (may I add those people who were wearing that need to be on what not to wear) Anyways, I had some friends that were already in. When I saw them later they told me that the drinks were not up to par. I would never go back even if I had a rule book.

Wasnt hard getting in the door. I had a crushed shirt that was untucked some jeans and some flip flops but then again i'm really handsome. I went here hearind all this good stuff got there and was like WUT???? Women were hardly that impressive. The ones that looked good came with their boyfriends. Nothing but doctors and lawyers and other rich guys there. If youre not one of those dont bother going. The women there are there exclusively to meet someone to pay their bills. And whats with the girl that says she hangs out there almost everyweekend? People who goto clubs and bars EVERY weekend need to get a life. There is more to life than just doing that. Thats why they will all be my slaves.

I've read some unhappy reviews, so let me put my 2 cents in. I've never had a problem with the door guys. I don't know them personally, but my girlfriends and I walk in everytime with no problems. Of course we come dressed and groomed to impress, meaning alot of class with a touch of skin. I've seen some of the people they turn away, and that's half the reason the rest of us go there. If you're dressed in sloppy jeans and tennis shoes, go somewhere else. It's not the doorman's fault. He's trying to keep business going, which is working. Most of the people in the bar are good looking and nicely dressed. It does tend to get crowded, which makes it easy to strike up conversation. The martini's are to die for, and if you treat the bartenders well, I promise you they'll take care of you.
