Partners Aaron Gordon, Robert Underwood, and brothers Ari and Micah Wilder are joining forces to open Red Light, Cocktails & Dessert Bar at 1401 R St. NW. The name reflects 14 Street’s colorful past as a red light district in the nation’s capital, and the design scheme will follow suit as well. Those wishing to visit this libation haven, which will also have a show-stopping dessert menu, can anticipate an April, 2014 opening. The collaborative efforts will also result in imaginative sweets with potent spirits, taking ‘boozy desserts’ to a new level. Red Light will serve nightly and also feature weekend brunch, a perfect date spot and to gather with friends.
“Distinctive craft cocktails and inspired desserts in a fun, relaxed bar will be the ideal complement to 14th St. - DC’s top restaurant destination, explains Aaron Gordon. “Who doesn’t love delicious chocolate and Champagne?”
