What You'll Get
Talking about sports, like winning the lotto and undergoing surgery, goes better with a cold beer. Make every hour happy hour with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of cold brews, pub grub, and more at Red Dot, located near Riverside Park.
Red Dot's selection of upscale pub grub provides libation-sippers with solid brain food in between intense study sessions of the bar's beer menu. Red Dot's signature plate of poutine ($5 for regular size) pays homage to the Canadian staple with local flair, blanketing french fries in homemade gravy and Wisconsin cheese curds. The Hot Stuff pizza (ranging from $7 for an 8-inch to $15 for a 16-inch) balances bean salsa, black olives, and jalapeños atop its crust, and the "loaded" grilled cheese ($6.50) trumps Mom's made-with-love version, piling on onions, cucumbers, tomato, and four types of cheese. Wash meals down into the soul where they'll frolic forever with local brews such as Lakefront Brewery's Cream City Pale Ale ($4.25) or out-of-state sips such as Rogue Dead Guy Ale ($5) from the exotic island of Oregon.
Circular red lamps hang from the ceiling, bewitching guests' inner cats, while dim lighting fosters the mood for a strong, breezy martini, such as the creamy key-lime White Key Martini ($7), or the Moscow Mule ($6), a classic vodka and ginger-beer-based spirit created in the '40s.
This Groupon is not valid for Red Dot's daily specials or Sunday brunch.
- I've been going here for years. Consistently good food and great service…some of the most friendly bartenders I've ever had the joy of dealing with. Their owner is always trying to make the place better and I don't think I could recommend a bar more. – James C., Yelp
- Absolute local gem…they do bar food here like you wouldn't believe. Wings include a very interesting root beer sauce, and the poutine is a true original. – Rich H., Yelp
