This place is Freak Show, Circus, Vaudeville, Kitch, and bar rolled into one amazing package. Downstairs, the vibe remains mostly dive bar with 2 full bars, tables, booths, photos on the ceiling and lit-up wizards’ heads from boardwalks of yester year. Beer lists on chalkboards, with selections like Flying Dog Raging Bitch Belgian Style I.P.A., Lagunitas Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’, Founder’s Dirty Bastard Scotch Ale, Stoudt’s Fat Dog Imperial Oatmeal Stout, draft beer selections and much more.
The upstairs, to the live music space complete with exposed beams, creaky floors, and a wooden bar reminiscent of an abandoned shed. There is no seating upstairs, thus to encourage dancing and mingling amongst guests, but there is an outdoor patio for the warm months.
Performances can include trapeze artists, fire dancers, burlesque performers and a guy who actually hammered a nail into his face and bicep.
The dark lit funhouse is full of freakish oddities including mannequins of elephant men, a shriveled 5-legged dog in a case, babies in jars and what looked like a pair of lips in a jar of formaldehyde.
If you still have an appetite, The Red Palace just added a full kitchen, which churns out a menu of gourmet burgers and sandwiches, appetizers, salads, tons of delicious sides and desserts. Don’t worry there are no babies with a dorsal fin or 100 year old eggs on the menu.
