The official source of what's happening in Atlanta, GA
To create the unique visual experience of RED, the likes of
which have never been seen at Philips Arena, three specific elements were
employed. First, there’s tiered level seating within the restaurant and bar
space allowing for optimal visibility of the court from the inside. Second, the
terraced dining accommodations within the Philips Arena seating bowl provide
for a premium view of all the happenings below on the floor. Finally rounding
things out, there is a centrally located show kitchen for guests to enjoy the
view of the chefs preparing meals. To sum things up, it’s pretty cool to be
able to eat a delicious gourmet meal while getting a first-hand account of the
action going on at the arena without the hassle of crowds and uncomfortable
seating. The décor is also worth raving about, as the bright bursts of color
honoring the restaurant’s namesake can be seen throughout. There are also stark
silver metal appliances and fixtures, as well as numerous flat screen TV’s,
intimate tables and a roomy bar.
The overwhelming atmosphere of RED sets you up
for the tasty food offerings available. Elevated takes on burgers are one of the menu
features of RED, but there are definitely other culinary options to choose from
that perhaps better showcase what the kitchen has to offer. A few highlights
include: Lemon Rosemary Chicken Breast, Sliced Tenderloin Steak Melt, Buffalo Chicken
Sliders, Flatbread Pizzas, Shrimp & Super Lump Crab Cakes and the Pow Pow
Rock Shrimp. Desserts are tempting fare such as, NY Cheesecake, Peach Crème Brulée and Molton Lava Cake. The full-service bar
features a vast selection of beer, wine, liquor and signature cocktails.
RED is located at 1 Philips Drive, Atlanta, 404-878-3604.
