Red Door Liverpool

It is always great when a new bar springs on to the scene and I get to dust off one of my (many) black dresses and set off into the night, so I was excited to attend one of the launch nights of Red Door Liverpool*, a lovely cocktail bar which has a twin branch in Chester. There used to be one in my home town of West Kirby too, and I was so sad when it closed as I  regularly went there to enjoy a French Martini or a 'Fizz your bean' a prosecco cocktail served with a jelly bean in the bottom. I was looking forward to seeing whether Red Door Liverpool would be as good as I remembered, and it sure was!
Housed in an elegant building at the top end of town, I walked through the eponymous Red Door to find a lovely sanctuary within. There is exposed brickwork, kitsch posters, soft lighting and even a photo booth to add to the fun! The large, well stocked bar dominates the room and it was fun to watch the bar tenders at work, throwing cocktails shakers around with a skill and dexterity I could never master!
The cocktail menu is extensive and one of the friendly bartenders Nick talked me through a couple of options before I settled on trying the wittily named 'Breaking Badass' first. It was delicious and so refreshing, I was instantly transported to a tropical beach (if only!) as I could have imagined sipping this on a sun lounger beneath a palm tree!


 There is a cosy atmosphere inside the bar, with low lighting and a roaring open log fire. There is a chesterfield sofa in front of the fireplace which I can quickly see becoming the place to sit in Red Door. We were immediately served water infused with cucumber, mint and lemon when we sat down. I thought this was a thoughtful touch which showed great attention to detail. The managing director Lee Lynch was in attendance, mingling with guests which was great to see. This hands on approach is a credit to him as it is always a good sign to see the manager visible at the venue. He always took this approach at the West Kirby branch too, where he was often in the bar mingling with guests.







Next on the menu was a 'Summer of Love' a summery pink spritzer with vodka, cranberry, white wine and pink grapefruit liqueur. Delicious, light and refreshing. Now all I need is a one way ticket to Barbados to continue the summer vibes! 












So after a lovely time chatting to Tessa, the Red Door Liverpool Business Development Manager who was kind enough to invite me in, we set off into the night to go and find ourselves some delicious pizza! Well, a girls got to do what a girls got to do! Thank you for having us, we will be back soon!

What do you guys think, do you have  favourite cocktail? Would you like to snuggle up by the fire at Red Door for a drink with your friends? I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Until next time,
