REDS Patio Bar

With a sophisticated island vibe and ocean breeze, REDS is the perfect place to grab tacos and a drink while watching the game, listening to a local musician play live on stage or just hanging with your friends after a day at the beach. It also makes a darn good “19th hole” following a round of golf!
