The view was incredible- right over the lake and alps. The lady behind the bar made a great recommendation for a local wine. The prices aren't cheap, but neither is the quality.

its a large bar with great views and if not busy can feel just a little quiet .. but sometimes that’s not too bad either if that’s what needed after a busy day

When busy it’s got a good vibe .. when quiet can feel bit cold

A highlight is that while there is a good buffet restaurant next door reds does very good counter food .. pizza /salad/burgers .. and they are a good alternative to what’s a good but expensive buffet

Service is great and with the views still a great place for a drink

Reds Bar (at Rydges/QT Hotel) atmosphere, view and cocktails were amazing. The cocktails were exquisite, although they do come with a $19 price tag (no happy hours anymore). So much flavour and very creative. Food included burgers, pizzas, salads sort of thing. Hotel guests, locals and tourists all welcomed.

We recently had drinks and nibbles at Reds. What a find. Fabulous decor, well sized, comfy chairs and lakeside views to die for. Excellent service - we don't drink and the barman made some spectacular Mocktails that were delicious - you wouldn't know there wasn't any alcohol in them. We ordered pizzas and spicy buffalo wings which were all extremely tasty and good portions.

I can't believe I have never heard of this place a lot sooner. You guys should advertise more, you are doing a great job!

I guess no one think of going to the bar of a hotel for a night out. Well, you should change your mind on this one because this place is incredible. First I absolutely love the atmosphere of the bar, set up in the middle of the room, showing all the beautiful bottles of liqueur and spirits. The cocktail list left me in complete "Wow" as everything seemed delicious, even a simple Gin and Tonic got revisited into something beyond delicious.
The snack menu is also really tasty and the price range is more than correct.

Oh and I forgot but the staff is super friendly and very helpful. Everyone should go and discover this little gem !
