Red Hot is an almost exact identikit reincarnation of Margarita’s that stood on the same spot for over 10 years. It has all the same features, including wide-screen TVs showing sports, a pool table, loud and proud live music, a good range of reasonably-priced food that is served until late, and enviable people-watching spots with views of the crowds surging by on Bangla Road.

Red Hot is not exactly the ideal place for tea, muffins and a polite conversation as the music (starting at 20:00) can get very loud and the place hops later on. If you’re looking for some night action with the feeling of being right in the heart of things then Red Hot is perfect. Read More...
