Welcome to the Red Lounge

Welcome to the Red Lounge!  We are so glad you are here!  Please grab a seat, relax, and have a glass of your fave Cabernet or domestic beer.  Let’s unwind from a long week, and share stories of your favorite cocktail, favorite lounge, local pub, or whatever is your flavor.

We all love a relaxing cocktail, and many of us have a favorite local happy hour or watering hole.  Your favorite drink probably has a history with you, and at the Red Lounge, we love to hear about it!  We chat about fine wines, mixed drinks, bourbons, German dark beers, or whatever is your cocktail to unwind and connect.

We have heard so many stories and experiences, and at the Red Lounge we love to share advice on really great white wines, smooth Kentucky whiskey, or a special ingredient in your Mother’s Day Bloody Mary.  Sharing is what is interesting, because we all know our own routine up down and side to side, but what is interesting is  to hear a complete stranger’s story from across the country.

Maybe you live in upstate New York, but wouldn’t it be super cool to hear what happy hour is like on Thursday afternoon in a small town in southern Oklahoma?  What the place looks and smells like, and whether the crowd is friendly or tempestuous?  Whether the ladies drink wine or whiskey, and what time is closing time?  That is interesting stuff, and why we like the Red Lounge.
