Description: A combination art gallery/beer and wine bar on Capitol Hill.

Scene: Strolling smatterings of art lovers, various and solemn groupings of board-game competitors.

Decor: In the front gallery, Tracy Boyd's drippy acrylic portraits; in the back lounge, a jukebox stocked with soul records and a supernaturally resilient Mylar balloon (having drifted to the ceiling during a birthday celebration, it has since remained, even after a direct shot with a BB gun).

What the bar name means: Red—specifically, orangey red.

Other thesaural reds: Amaranth (reddish rose), alizarin (deep red), falu (even deeper red), brazilin ("natural red 24").

Happy hours: Tues–Sun 4–7 pm.

Happy-hour drink specials: $1 off all drinks. recommended
