I am usually not a fan of tequila, but after trying some at Red O I can easily be persuaded!
*Melrose Happy Hour Sunday through Friday from 5pm – 6:30pm
I really enjoyed the live band playing Gypsy Kings music (My favorite).
There’s also another Red O location in Newport Beach (that’s my next stop). I’ve heard it’s worth the trip! (hint, hint)
