East Nashville’s Best Bars: This unique watering hole doesn’t hold a large crowd. That makes it perfect for weeknight beers, happy hour drinks, and weekend night hangouts. The decor is interesting and will keep you occupied if your party starts to get bored. Look for skulls and cross bones, funny quotes, photos of celebrities, and walls lined with wine corks. If you’re craving a drink during the day, you’ll find plenty of like-minded folks hanging out on the deck at Red Door East. Red Door has a laid-back atmosphere, and usually carries a number of American beers in bottles and on top. The best part is, the beer’s always ice cold.

Top Ten Bars in Nashville

The Guardian |  Top Ten Bars in Nashville

You’ve heard of skeletons in the closet, but Red Door Saloon has a skeleton in the basement. It’s tricky talking your friends into laying down on a bar-room floor and peeking into a tiny hole in the wood but once they do, they will see a full skeleton. Who cares as long as the drinks are strong and the music is loud? There is a Red Door in both East and West Nashville, with both basements displaying the remains of a past life. And if you’ve ever envisioned a bar made out of money, then Red Door would be it. The entire bar top is made out of pennies. They serve up the finest brats in town, Chicago style, and the jukebox is always on loud.

10 Year Anniversary Red Door Saloon East

Ten Years, that’s the milestone being hailed this Sunday night at The Red Door Saloon East Nashville. Join in the revelry of celebrating a decade in East Nashville! Coinciding with The Day-of-the-Dead on November 2nd, this will be one great event!






Red Door Saloon Destin Florida Beach Bar

The Red Door Saloon, located in Destin, is just a great local bar. It is located steps away from the harbor in Destin. It sits up on the hill a bit, and you can recognize it by its American flags and purple railing. Although this Florida beach bar is not located on the edge of the water, it is a great little bar.

You can feel that it is a popular bar with the locals. The bartender told us this was true, but sitting up on this hill and looking out on the harbor we thought that visitors to Destin would love this Florida beach bar too.

The food is good, but it is just sandwiches and hand held food. There is no live music, and we love a bar with live music. Despite these two “flaws”, we loved this Florida beach bar. They have happy hour every day, and every day the times and offer vary. You can go back every day and try a different special at this Florida beach bar.

When you go take note of the tops of the bars. They are covered with embedded pennies. It is very attractive and presents a different kind of look.
