“Terrible bouncers”
Review of Red Door Bar

Red Door Bar
Ranked #20 of 46 Nightlife in Chester
Attraction details
Reviewed 18 March 2017 via mobile

Turned up about 11pm with 3 friends ,we were all smart and casually dressed ,stood by the pretentious rope barrier for a moment then told by the bouncers we couldn't go in , why we asked politely, need a shirt was the answer, ok fair enough, as we work away the bouncer shouts try the next gay bar , first thing we aren't gay ,2nd is that the thing to shout down the street, 3rd we look through the window of the red door and their are men in there wearing tee shirts breaks the no shirts policy then . Think the management need to employ more professional door staff , won't be visiting there again .

We were advised by several local people to visit here. We only queued a short time to get in but once we were in, we soon felt hot and uncomfortable. It was heaving and no room to move at all. Everywhere was crammed with people, the dance floor had glass EVERYWHER, people refused to move if you wanted to get passed them, the staff were slow serving. We left after 15 minutes as we couldn't stand the heat and the business of it all. On a positive the music was good but no room to dance.

Queue at the door as place was busy but got in quick and although the place was packed it was so much fun! Great cocktails, friendly staff and awesome mixture of music for most tastes. Really fun place to have a dance

Came here for a few drinks before hitting the nightclubs.
Bouncers were friendly when letting us in, despite it being very busy on a Saturday night.
Served fairly swiftly and the drinks were nice, and the staff welcoming.

So my self and my partner went to red door as hickorys said it was a nice bar, we got there very early and it had just opened no one was in side bar the boss a lady named Sam and a barman called James, we were greeted with friendly welcoming vibes and sat at the bar all night, the cocktails are fantastic the vibes and music amazing, the vibe gets better and better the more people that turn up happy hour lasted till 11 and all classic cocktails for a 5er safe to say mine and my partners new favourite bar, if your ever local to this place please pop in and just watch James work one of the most charismatic and entertaining cocktail bar man I have ever been fortunate to meet his knowledge was brill his bounce never stoped that topped with a strong women running the night with a friendly and welcoming smile, bar the head ache this morning fantastic night and can't wait for my birthday in march as I will be booking the venue out for a private function cheers guys
