Red Steakhouse and Bar have kindly provided details of their weekly events for the month.

On Wednesdays you can enjoy Steel Pan Performances by Robert Symons and allow his music to take you to your own personal paradise. From 5.30pm until 9pm, lovely relaxing rhythms will make the steel pan as warm as a tropical island breeze.

With an open air patio overlooking the water, Red is one of Front Street’s hottest spots to spend your Friday Night.  Happy Hour will run from 4pm until 7pm with drink specials including $4 highballs, $5 beers, and $6 on select house wines. Dinner reservations are welcome or just enjoy light bites from the bar menu in the lounge or patio.  The talented DJ Ole begins every Friday at 10.30pm and plays a mix of popular music, remixed old favorites and Latin vibe music until 2.30am.

On Saturday evenings, guests will be offered a complimentary amuse bouche and palate cleanser by Executive Chef Chad Mitchell. Ukulele artist Mike Hind will then be creating the vibe throughout dinner. He is a true entertainer playing songs on request and adding in his own unique lyrics for humour until 10.30pm. Late night entertainment will them be provided by The Big Chill’s DJ Felix who will be playing the best in house, deep house and late night jams.
