The Red Door is a hidden space with no sign - not really a secret, but it has that cache. We went here on a Friday around 9:00 PM - it was dead - only the DJ and the Bartenders. The space was comfortable, dark and really nice, however, not enough to overlook a seriously under trained bartender. I had... More

I heard about this place from a co-worker and decided to check it out. It doesn't have a sign, so you have to know where it is. We only had an address and somehow we figured out where which door to go in. There is a bouncer right when you walk in. You go up a set of stair and... More

I almost bought a condo next to this place and my neighbors warned me about the noise and "trouble". I never take anybody's word so I checked it out for myself and closed the place sometime after midnight. I think I was the only person that was over 25 (by 40 years) and the only person that wasn't asked to... More

Jon Lessard puts together some really good shows at the Red Door. He puts together great lineups of music and comedy (separately). I like that there is actually a place for original music and experimental comedy. It is geared toward a younger crowd. I like that. A few groups of people who show up there do not. The place is...

This is one of my all time favorite places to visit when I lived in Portsmouth and when I come back to visit. It's a great place hidden from the tourists and yuppies that have increased in the years. Chill house music fills the small, yet semi upscale place filled with professionals of all ages looking to savor a nice... More

I had my first martinis ever here and have searched everywhere for a place that even comes close. Nothing does! Their espresso martini is amazing. The others are very good too but I just go straight for my favorite now. It's an odd place because it's not marked - it just has a red door and you go upstairs once... More

An upstairs bar, rather pricey but when busy it has a lot of ambiance. A fun place to hang out. Adults only.

Tough to find a better place to have a cocktail at night.

"Martini bar". Pretty expensive for the area and generally the crowd doesn't justify the price.
