Red’s Place – Chinatown
Red’s Place was the first bar I found in Chinatown with a jukebox, so I loaded it up with danceable tunes and the party really got started. The owner’s son was running the bar, and he had no idea how to make drinks, even rum and coke, so I used my mad bartender skills and talked him through everyone’s orders; it was actually pretty fun.
One thing I love about Chinatown bars is that they are all crammed into weird little spaces, so the bars have fun shapes and it’s often an adventure getting to the bathroom. Red’s Place is somewhat of an “S” shaped bar.
Aside from the $9 well drinks, (and I think that was only because the son didn’t know how much to charge,) I really enjoyed this place.
