Great news! The recently remodeled RG Club (formerly the Red Garter) at 2536 Lincoln will roll out their “free admission with 90291 ID” policy this evening with an Afro-Reggae night featuring the band Cultural Soul.

Shows at the RG Club run from 9pm- midnight, the bar closes at 2 am and valet parking is out front. The club is 21 and over, the cover charge is normally $10, domestic beers start at $5 and wines and well drinks start at $8. The outdoor patio has been covered and is also heated.

The club intends on keeping the policy year round! Awesome live music with no cover? This is my new favorite bar! Happy “hump day”! See you there!
