Deansgate’s new basement bar Red Door opens with hot VIP party

Red Door is a hot new bar and live music venue on Deansgate, beneath The Botanist

Guests at last night’s VIP launch party were spoiled for choice by the array of delicious cocktails and spirits on offer, enjoying the zesty delights of Mrs Jones with fresh grapefruit, Elderflower gin, Aperol and lemon juice and the refined character of Old Smokey, a classic bourbon smoked with oak.

Famous faces including Antony Cotton, Bruno Langley, Ben Thompson (BBC Breakfast), Katie McGlynn, Mikey North, Mike Joyce of The Smiths, Rowetta, and Tisha Merry, who was celebrating her birthday, partied the night away with legendary musician and DJ, Peter Hook who took to the decks in honour of Living Ventures Chairman Tim Bacon (and a partner in Red Door with his old friend Dave Hinds) who recently passed away unexpectedly, and who was very much looking forward to last night.

As well as catering for their guests, visiting musicians/bands performing at Red Door are also in for a treat with unique, no expense spared PA systems in place for full bands, acoustic performances and guest DJs.
