ABOUT

A place for your senses

Hardwood floors, lounge furniture and candlelight build a comfortable scene. Our cocktail menu explores a spectrum of flavor. The music is carefully designed, whether it be seasoned djs, catering to the energy of the room in real time, or talented live projects.

We opened our doors in 2003, with the intention of offering Portsmouth something special in entertainment and experience. Over ten years later the infrastructure has been perfected, and there is always something new to be excited about.

MUSIC

The Hush Hush Sweet Harlot series brings live talented music into an attentive setting. Sid Lindner began the series in 2004 to appreciate local and touring acts, focusing attention on the artists.

Monday nights are a great time to enjoy a muted style of americana, folk, bluegrass, and jazz. The acoustics are ideal for stand up bass, fiddle, slide guitar, cello, and keyboards. It's a receptive, intimate space where the extraordinary unfolds often.

Over the years we have hosted Deer Tick, Nat Baldwin, Phantogram, Joe Young, Ben Cosgrove, These United States, Clara Berry, and John Craigie.

There are only a couple of places left in Portsmouth where you can see some of the greatest, punk, garage, and rock bands from North America live and unadulterated.

Thursday nights at the Red Door are the best place to experience new music and meet cool (and weird) people.

From the beginning, The Red Door has strived to provide something refreshingly unique. Our Djs are no exception. Careful attention has been paid to the quality of our selectors. Depending on the night, you'll enjoy the finest sounds ranging from reggae to funk to hip hop to house to techno and so much more.

We've had the privilege of hosting some of the most well-respected Djs in the world including the likes of Mark Farina, Danny Howells, Soul Clap, El Txef A, Vincenzo, Fred Everything and Pete Moss.
