This bar is awesome - it's never a question when my friends and I go out where we are going, it's always going to be Red Door. I have never witnessed the staff to be rude, actually they go out of their way to be nice and make some amazing (and large!) drinks. Love the people that go here too, it's a great hang all around.
So Rude to Customers – This place sucks. I have never ever felt unsafe and awful while going to a bar. The women's bathroom was clogged up with crap spilling on the floor... So my friend and I went to the men's bathroom. While we were in there...a crazy bartender stomps in and yells at us GET OUT NOW!!!!! GET OUT YOU HAVE TO LEAVEEE. This was completely ridiculous and uncalled for. Just yelling at top of lungs for no reason. Didn't even ask nicely first and then yell..we were just standing there in shock that some guy would be so mean and rude to women. No need to yell at women this way it was very psycho for no reason. I will never come back and shame on them for yelling at us for THEIR mistake of an unclean womens restroom. It was just very unprofessional to treat customers that way.
They'll take your money!! – I was a loyal patron of Red Door East. That was the ONLY bar I'd ever go to. Saturday night myself and a group of friends were there trying to have a good time. A guy approached our table asking if we were from the area. His girlfriend got upset and came over telling me to leave. Her friend pushed me from behind which caused me to swing. They kicked me out without letting me close my tab. When I sent a friend in to close the tab, the bar manager/owner's son told her that if I didn't close the tab, he would've tipped himself! When I looked at the receipt the next day, he charged me for a Jack Black Label at $6.50, knowing I've never ordered that in his bar before!! I will never step foot in another bar that is owned or ran by these crooks! And as far as music.....if they don't like the song you play, they will turn it. So basically I wouldn't waste my dollar on a song either!! Drinker beware!!
the bar that made my vacation – i found the bar to be very friendly,great music and only a stones throw from where i was staying any one going to nashville tn should call in.
AWESOME! – Best bar staff, fun, and you can usually avoid the stupid people and not get over run with Vandi on the east side:)
Discriminatory – I am a Veteran of the U.S. Army and a motorcycle enthusiast. I am currently a member of a Motorcycle Club comprised of Military Veterans of all branches. Our organization is recognized nationally as a non-profit entity, which is an active part of every community we are in. Locally, we have held fundraisers for Operation Stand Down Nashville (OSDN) and the United Service Organizations (USO).
In the five years we have been a part of the Nashville community, our members have donated both their time and money to numerous local charities. Additionally, our members are productive citizens, who contribute to this community.
As part of the community, we often patronize local businesses and many local businesses have supported us in our fundraising endeavors. As a Motorcycle Club, with a deep pride in our Military heritage, we always wear our organization?s logo (Colors) when patronizing local establishments. Until recently, this has never been a problem and we have been welcome everywhere.
Recently, several members U.S. Military Vets MC, as well as members of Rolling Thunder, Inc. went to the Red Door Saloon East in the Five Points neighborhood, where we have been customers for several years. Upon entering the Red Door Saloon East, we were informed that we could no longer wear our ?Colors? in this establishment. When asked what had changed, I was informed the restriction was due to problems with another organization, and not due to our organization.
It?s a sad day when long time patrons, who are productive members of this community and Veterans of the United States Armed Forces, are suddenly told they cannot enter an establishment if they continue showing pride in their service to our country. On their website, the Red Door Saloon East touts ?patrons from every walk of life?. Well, I certainly hope after reading this, Veterans and motorcycle enthusiasts alike will think twice before patronizing the Red Door Saloon East.
ONE OF EAST NASHVILLE'S BEST KEPT SECRET – I usually visit on the weekday when I really want/need to unwind. Don't go here for a full meal. It's a bar in every sense of the word. The atmosphere is friendly and the bartenders that I have come into contact with were great!! I love to sit on the deck with my drink and my chips n dip; chilling out.
Good bar – This place used to be my favorite bar in Nashville and it still is on certain nights. The crowd and the bartenders really make or break this place. There are a few bartenders here that are the best in Nashville and a few that are the worst. Additionally, it can get unbelievably crowded, noisy, and smoky. I usually stay away from this place on the weekends and go during the week.
If you don't like it here, you're probably square. – If you're tired of all the yuppies at 3 Crow, this is your place. The locals keep the jukebox honest... you won't find any Creed or Christina Aguilera here. The bartenders are the best in town, and it seems like it's always 2-for-1 over there. It's no frills, which means you shouldn't expect great food. What you should expect is local color and strong drinks... even though it's relatively new, it feels like old East Nashville, the hip part of town that no one knew about.
