Thanks to reader, Sari, for giving us a heads up on a new wine bar called The Red Room.
I came across your blog awhile back, but don’t remember how! Anyway, I check in occasionally. I thought you might want to know about a new wine bar that just opened up. It is a bit south of you, at 181 and Bennett, and is called The Red Room. It’s a small cafe during the day (just coffee and tea drinks for now, but I think pastries/muffins to be offered soon) and a (mostly wine) bar at night. Free WiFi. Good wine list. Good music. Good people. Exposed brick, nice bar, local artwork on the walls. Worth checking out! (I am sure they would appreciate any sort of mention as well… I don’t want the place to go anytime soon, so I am dropping a line to various uptown blogs I know.) No! I am not getting paid by them! I seriously just don’t want to see a place like this go. :-)
Anyway, just thought I’d give you a heads up. I really enjoy your blog. Keep it up!
Thanks for the love, Sari! We don’t get paid for this either – we’re just having fun! =)
Now, I do recall that a few of you guys went recently. I searched for a website, but came up short. It has been mentioned on the forums, but would love to hear how your experience was.
So, is 181st and Bennett considered Hudson Heights or just The Heights? Not sure how to label this post for future reference…
UPDATE: i missed where Sari mentions, “The Red Room is owned by the same folks who own Groom Team, the barber shop on 181 between Ft Wash and Pinehurst. People may have heard of Groom Team, I’d imagine.”
is this a new uptown trend? barbershop owners opening up cafes & bars?
first it de Cafe/GLJ in inwood, now The Red Room/Groom Team…
a little odd, no?
