This homey wine bar and bistro near Polk Museum of Art features seasonal eclectic craft food and beverages, including small plates, large plates, vegetarian options and unique desserts.
It's been said that when you step through the (red) door of Red Door, you forget you're in Lakeland. Not that anyone would ever want to forget they are in a place as lovely as Lakeland, it’s just that you are instantly swept up into a dining experience like no other.
Behind the Red Door
Located just steps away from Lake Morton, the establishment is renowned for serving up eclectic craft food and beverages to locals and visitors in a quaint, yet hip, atmosphere. From small plates of cheese and hummus perfectly paired with wines and beer, to succulent specialties like roasted bone marrow and escargot to get your meal started. A seasonal menu allows their chef to take advantage of seasonal produce, and provide you, the diner, with the flavor of the season.
A Door - and Experience - of a Different Color
In addition to a menu that stays as fresh as their fare, Red Door Wine Market also boasts some unique offerings you won’t find elsewhere.
The Phantom Sandwich - Only the chef knows what you’ll get when you sign up for this surprise sandwich. You might get fried chicken, bacon, and fried green tomatoes between two grilled cheese sandwiches, or a shrimp po’boy with pickled onions and kimchi aoli. Two things are for certain: the sandwich you get won’t be anywhere else on the menu, and it’s going to be tasty.
Red Door Brunch – Just one more reason we love Fall. The cooler weather welcomes diners to enjoy seasonal fare on the patio.
Red Door Pub Run - Every Tuesday evening Red Door invites the runners (and walkers!) of the community to come out and participate in a 5K in partnership with FitNiche, a local specialty running store in Lakeland. Afterward, runners typically partake in a meal, 2 for 1 drink specials and some socializing, of course.
Red Door Rocks Live Music – Like brunch, the live music at Red Door takes place during the fall. You can find schedules and special menus for performance nights on Red Door’s website.
Red Door Outreach - Red Door Wine Market is very involved in community outreach and participating in events that support local business owners.
Because of the unique nature of Red Door Win Market's seasonal menus, diners are encouraged to check the website or call ahead to see what exciting treats and events await them.
