Best chill martini bar~. If you have someone come from out of town, thanks to red door, there is somewhere great to go. The Mary Martini is the ONLY martini that I have ever craved! The membership is cheap and the atmosphere is quiet and a great place for a first date!
check user's history for those giving 5 stars here..
i was just checking out the place and noticed a lot of 1 star and 5 star ratings....i looked at the history for the users giving 5 stars...every one of them has exactly one review on citysearch....5 stars for the red door and no other posts.
kind of curious...sounds a lot like staff averaging out the ratings.
Best martinis and atmosphere!. I have been going to the Red Door since it opened and continue to recommend it to people. I have always gotten good service and excellent drinks. Friday nights there is music from a DJ and Saturday nights a jazz trio that covers more modern songs from the 80-90's. Both take requests and do a great job at setting the mood. It's a fairly small non-smoking club (unless you're out on the patio). It's a nice place to kick back and enjoy drinks and conversation with friends on one of the couches or small tables. If you're looking for a large, meat market dance club, this is not the place for you. Sometimes I've seen people get upset over having to pay a membership fee, however that is Utah. Membership here is the cheapest they can make it by Utah law.
Avoid this place, worst service in the 50 states..
When I first visited The Red Door last December I was somewhat impressed with the atmosphere and they had a couple of martinis that were out of this world. My wife and I decided to go back last evening and what a complete waste of money and time.
The first thing I noticed was the place was only about 70% full at 10:30 at night compared with standing room only the last time I was there. We took a table and ordered our first drinks about 5-10 minutes after arriving. The first thing that happened was the waitress took our drinks to the wrong table, then she had to look around to see who they belonged to. It's not like this place is big.
That was the only time we saw the waitress, well at least at our table. We saw her occasionally walking around the bar but she never came back to see if we wanted to order anything else. I had to grab her and ask for a glass of water, she said she would get it for me and never did bring it. After about an hour I went and found her and asked for my check, it took her another 20 minutes to get it for me.
On the way out I told the doorman this was the worst service I had ever encountered at any bar, nightclub, restaurant, or business my entire life. His reply was "Don't bother coming back". Like I would. Anyhow considering on a Saturday night they were at about 70% capacity it seems as if people are catching on and avoiding the place. I recommend you do the same.
rude staff. My husband and I used to like going to The Red Door from time to time so we eventually bought a membership. The first time we returned with our new membership card, the doorman wouldn?t let me in because he said my name was not on the card and I would have to buy my own membership. My husband and I told him that we had both purchased the membership. The doorman rudely argued that if someone on his staff made the occasional mistake of forgetting to write someone?s name on the membership it?s because they are so busy they don?t have time to double check that each card is filled out completely. (Can I say what the??? No time to make sure that members are treated well?) Then the doorman told us to deal with it and he could let in whomever he wanted and if I wanted in I needed to purchase my own membership. At that point we asked to speak with the manager. To which the doorman replied in the most snobby tone, ?I am the manager AND the owner.? I wish I could remember this guy?s name. He was usually the doorman and often acted bitter. I don?t think there's been a time in my life when I?ve been treated more rudely (at least not in this country). This happened last fall and we have not gone back and never will and have advised all our friends to stay away.
Best Martinis anywhere, get there before 10 pm, sit at the bar.. The atmosphere, the decor, the beer, wine, scotch, and martini selection are the best in the state if not the left coast!! It's smoke free, a major plus! If you go, and you most definately should, sit at the bar because the Bartendars are the most helpful and friendly people I've met in SLC. Avoid the waitstaff cause they are just plain rude and the doorman can have his moments as well.
Still my favorite hideaway. This place still continues to be my favorite place in Salt Lake City. The atmosphere is very cool and the service is great. The bartender even though she was busy took the time to give me some good dining advise and tell me about the city. The drink selection was very eclectic and I must say I loved their selection of scotches. I would definately recommend this place to any out of town traveler
Avoid this type of Customer Service. MEMBERSHIP has it PRIVILEGES. HOWEVER, NOT AT THE RED DOOR! I have been going to this bar from time to time, as a local, since it originally opened. My last visit to the Red Door last week, will certainly be my LAST VISIT! The waitress/server was so rude and inexperienced that I was embarrased that I invited my clients to join me at this bar for a drink. The Host/Door person who I have seen working at this bar for a number of years, really appears, based on his behavior that night, that he is not happy with his job and crossed the line by taking out his personal issues on the customers....as the saying goes, if you are not happy with your job, find another...and make everybody happy. I will never go back to this bar nor will I every recommend it to any of my friends and clients. As a business owner, here in Salt Lake, I would like to offer the owner of the RED DOOR a little advise which is to offer a membership that makes it members feel like they are privileged and give them the respect they deserve for picking your place as place to go and spend their money. Also, please make sure to hire the right type of people for the type of job they are required to perform...such as CUSTOMER SERIVCE.... I will spend my money where I please and it will NOT be at the RED DOOR!
Horrible service,impersonal,rude,over rated& over priced "martini'. As locals , after not going there for a while we thought things changed,but everything is the same: Bad service , below average drinks, cocky staff , andf management that treated us worse than "non members" of this club. Cocktail waitress was soo rude., talking about week before & bill charges,in front of new friends, (aftyer charching all of it to credit card) so embarrasing & rude ,I WILL NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS WILL GO BACK THERE or take friends&or out of town friends to that small town bar with "big city bar NEGATIE attitude" Over priced and over rated.
