The Scarlet Tree
The Scarlet Tree teems with energy. A live rhythm and blues band jams on the raised stage in the evenings, invigorating a crowd that noshes on eclectic small plates and sips local craft beers streaming from 12 taps. It took owner Pete Kolytiris four years to rebuild The Scarlet Tree to this former glory following a fire at the original site in 2005, and since then, Pete has revived the lounge—originally opened more than 50 years ago—filling it with live music, smooth cocktails, and reliable food.
Pete upholds The Scarlet Tree’s time-honored and ever-popular brunch menu by slinging staples such as eggs benedict and cubed house potatoes, along with freshly baked scones and corned beef hash. As the sun begins to sink, servers swap out eggs for ahi tacos and signature burgers topped with truffle pesto. DJs and live musicians drive the nightly line up, supplying soul, jazz, and even karaoke hits as patrons settle in for a night of drinks and relaxed entertainment.
