One of Portsmouth’s hidden night spots is The Red Door. Many of you know what I’m talking about – and others probably have no idea (just as I didn’t back in the day). The Red Door gets it namesake very simply from its entrance – a red door on State Street, right next to Dos Amigos. When I’ve ventured up, it’s always been an interesting night – usually including a fancy cocktail of some sort and/or a beer. I’m not ashamed to say that one of my favorites is the espresso martini (as a coffee addict it’s right up my alley). The place has a definitively laid back feel and lounge style seating with its comfy couches. They have both live music and DJs hosting depending on the night of the week – stop up sometime to check it out.
