Oh no they made the dreaded move! So my words are meaningless. But an ode to a very cool place with very cool people. I creeped into redlight redlight with Woody on the the WHF III after a mention from the great folks at the Abby. This is a place that if you don't know its there you will miss it, but worth the trouble to find.

It was dark as we assenced the worn wooden steps (real dark for me as I always wear shades)up up but no light at the end of the tunnel. The decor was varied. No table or I beleive chair matched. A small stage with bikes, they say bands play on the weekend. The bar was small about 7 chairs with about 8 tables. I loved the place, felt right at home. It appeared by all accounts to be someones demolished attic. Beer selection was good and the bartender was excellent, turned me on to some good beers.

Redlight Redllight will always have a place in my heart, because it was my first round of Lagunitas Lucky 13 now one of my Favorites. If you are a philly guy the Kybher Pass vibe for sure, and music about the same. Good luck with the new place, I know it will rock and will stop by next time in the area.

The people in the bar were excellent made two new friends in a very short stay. (1,219 characters)

No food! This is killing their ratings. Great place with great selection. The cellared area always has a few whalez swimming around (see what I did there?). (156 characters)

Great spot for craft in bottles and on draft.
Very cozy, food all around in plaza.
Great events.
Brew their own beers, as well.

one of the best around. their tap list is always diverse, the staff is very knowledgeable, they brew their own small batch beers and their bottle list is HUGE.

there's usually a food truck posted up out front on most days. parking can be difficult when they're busy but if you know the area you can find parking nearby. (328 characters)

This place has devolved over the years. They have about 2o or so beers on tap but have played the game of huge price increases with ridiculous 6oz pours. I think they rented more square feet for what they can handle and are trying to screw the customer. You can no longer get a pint or if you can it is a garbage beer for $6. The rest are all tiny pours for 7 to 12 dollars and with bad choices. Hourglass Brewery in Orlando blows this place out of the water. Go to Stardust around the corner, left at 7-11 for less choices but some real good ones for 1/2 the price of Red Light Red Light. Place used to be reasonable with better beers before they moved locations. Bottle prices have become absolutely ridiculous. (718 characters)

Great low key place to really enjoy some craft beers and wine! The barkeeps are knowledgeable and will help you find a good beer, whatever you're in the mood for! Try some vintage beers or even taste some of their own brewed Redlight Redlight beer on tap! (255 characters)

I really like this place. I live about 20-something minutes away and go once or twice a month. I never have had a bad experience during any visit, particularly at the current location. As far as I can remember, RL RL has now had 3 locations (it began over near Rollins College in Winter Park, and then moved to a spot off Colonial Drive, and now it is near Audubon Park/Baldwin Park) and each has had a unique charm/atmosphere.

The bottle selection here is great and the diversity of the drafts is impressive and interesting. Some of the bottles are very pricey, though. I've declined buying certain things due to the price and wish that they were slightly lower. It's not that big a deal, but certain bottles that shouldn't cost so much do cost a lot here.

Overall, this place is great. The employees are awesome and do an impressive job, considering that it gets very busy sometimes and that there is a lot going on during such events as Zwanze Day. I am looking forward to my next visit. Definitely stop in here if you've yet to or if you're visiting Orlando. (1,064 characters)

Great Bar. Being a patron as soon as I could legally drink I've seen the three variations of the grand bar! Every bartender has great stories, knows their stuff and are able to recommend the beer you want to drink, that you haven't had! If you are ever in the vicinity of this great local establishment, do your self a favor and pass on by! (340 characters)

Their homebrew ran out so I got another DIPA on tap. The waitress covered my beer because I didn't get the one I wanted. Very nice staff and wonderful selection. Definitely going back when I get a chance. (204 characters)

I was staying in town for business and decided to give this place a try. I wasn't quite as enamored with this place as others, but this is probably the best selection in Orlando.

The whole area kind of lacks any real feel to it. It is located in a tiny strip mall with other restaurants and clothes shops surrounding it. The exterior is non-descript, and the interior lacks any feel. It is vacuous with no real attitude or ambiance.

My one complaint, which really isn't a true complaint, just a preference, is that out of the 25 or so taps, there was only ONE, yes ONE IPA. I know not everyone is a hophead, but this is the only BA worthy bar I have been to in the past 6 years or so that didn't have atleast three or four IPAs on tap. The only one available was Swamp Head Big Nose, which was a nice beer. The variety of styles is unmatched, which is most desireable.

The style selection runs the gamut from Altbier to Barrel Aged Saison to Helles to Schwarzbier. The bottled selection was awesome and rivaled any bottle selection I have seen anywhere in Florida. There had to be 500 bottled beers. They even had a huge ass bottle of St Feuillien (sp?) that was a 9L bottle, also known as a Salmanazar, for sale. The bartender said it was about $600.

Service was okay. I wasnt really acknowledged when I walked in and was ignored for about two minutes. After the initial introductions, the servers were knowledgable and conversational.

For beer, this is a true destination in Orlando. (1,495 characters)
