Red Light Gets Green Light

Washington DC Dining DC

A new concept for DC—a cocktail and dessert lounge—has opened its doors on a busy corner of 14th Street. And it's a throwback to a scandalous time in DC. (Which one? Unfortunately you have to ask.)


Red Light is a call back to the days when the Logan Circle neighborhood buzzed with illegal activity. Partners Aaron Gordon and Robert Underwood (who’s also executive chef) devised a menu with 10 rotating desserts, and brought on Ari and Micah Wilder to launch an inspired bar program. The 44-seat deck may just be the patio to be seen on this summer. Red Light is in soft-open mode until April 27.
