“Birthday celebration ”
Review of Red Door Bar

Red Door Bar
Ranked #20 of 46 Nightlife in Chester
Attraction details
Reviewed 16 September 2017 via mobile

Came to Red Door to celebrate my birthday. Door staff are smart, friendly and efficient. Bar staff worked hard and ensured fast and fair service. But disappointed there was no passion fruit in my Pornstar Martini. Music was as expected, and although busy, there was room to move around and even have a dance away from the main dance floor.
My only gripe with this bar is the female toilet attendant! I have no idea what she does in there but it's the second time I've been in there when she goes into the cubicle, has a look but never replenishes the toilet paper. On a previous occasion, I had to practically beg her for a few sheets. This time I hadn't realised it was yet again empty, not impressed. Either ensure she does what she's meant to, or get rid!
Special mention to Mr Hollywood, the distinguished, silver fox bouncer who ensured we weren't pestered by unwanteds and kept the riff raff from the door.
Overall, another great night at Chesters best nightclub.

This used to be the place to be for me and my friends on a Friday/Saturday night. However I think it has been let down a lot by its management and lack of innovation.

Luckily for us, we have never really had any issues in getting in this bar but I do know a lot of people that have. However, we have had a lot of issues whilst inside with staff members and management. Which is a shame as it has now ruined the experience a bit for us.

Once you've been here a few times, you will start to notice that it is pretty much the same play list every weekend. There are some good songs don't get me wrong but just gets a bit samey.

Drinks are great but it can be a long wait as it gets extremely busy in there. We usually order 2 at a time to save the journey.

For girls in heels, make sure you take a comfortable pair. There is no seating unless you want to pay for a booth and 0 tolerance of taking shoes off sneakily.

It is a great bar to have a dance without going to a club but for us I think we have just been left with a sour taste. We do go back every now and then as Chester nightlife scene is limited but I no longer get excited about going.

Busy bar that is well managed- lots of security staff frequently checking but all very nice. Had decent live music on, not crazily priced with efficient bar staff. Dance area, with plentiful places to stand as well as sit. Obviously popular locally.

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 .
