Open only a few months Red Door based on Deansgate in Manchester is one of the newest places on the scene to join the hidden bar phenomenon.
Last week I was invited to a live music and AW16 shoe collection bloggers event at the basement venue.
After meeting The Hut ladies for the first time at Hey Little Cupcakes event last month, I was excited to meet some familiar faces, enjoy some prosecco and live music and lust over brand new shoe collections.
Right next door to The Botanist on Deansgate I had been warned I may get a little lost in finding ‘The Red Door’. Luckily as soon as I arrived outside, a lovely lady was there to greet me inside.
Lily from The Hut was already at the bar waiting with some drinks vouchers and I couldn’t resist an after work sip of prosecco.
Whilst waiting for the band to go live, I stood and admired the amazing AW16 shoes collections. From classic Vans to Converse and Dr Martens (which I actually used to wear back in my teen years)
Of course I ended up crushing over the Kendall & Kylie leather ankle boots which are just stunning (definitely purchasing these soon)
Manchester based band Plastic House took the centre stage for the evening and we were in for a treat. From the moment they started to play I was literally glued to the stage. The lead singer had such a monotone and relaxing voice, I could of literally stood there for hours. Funnily enough the band are playing at Dive NQ next month, the bar who I market for, so it such a relief knowing we’d booked a really awesome band.
Not knowing how long had passed, I started to feel the prosecco warm up my cheeks, which meant it was time to try out a few canapés. The selection of mini bites was very appealing and I scoffed a few of these before heading back to the bar for my second glass of prosecco.
The bar had such a good casual vibe, I could of easily spent all night in there but unfortunately it was a school night albeit a Thursday so after a lot more mingling I headed home before the second set.
On my way out I was handed a very cool looking goody bag which was even more amazing when I found out what was inside.
I received a Dr Martens keyring, jelly beans, hair vitamins, 20% off All Sole shoes which means those Kendall & Kylie boots will be sitting in my shoe collection, as well as lots of badges and vans stickers and not forgetting a Hunter waterproof poncho.
I’ll be reviewing these in a separate post but I can already see my self using my Hunter poncho on many occasions.
**All Sole are one of the leading shoe retailers for selling high quality designer footwear and with amazing longstanding brands onboard such as Vans, Kendall and Kylie, Converse, it’s the go to online boutique to get a pair of quality shoes**
