Red Room Lounge, the intimate downtown wine bar, is now closed. Founder Alex Andrawes will use the space to expand his customizable wine bottle gift business, Personal Wine, as he explained on Facebook. “The decision needed to be made to either leave [Personal Wine’s next door office] entirely, or allow Personal Wine to naturally acquire the space occupied by the Red Room, and today is the day,” he wrote.

While Red Room is officially closed as of yesterday, Tuesday, July 18, the bar is selling all of its current bottles for half-off prices until Monday, July 31. The space will continue to hold occasional events and tastings, as well as store customers’ wine collections in its private lockers.
Red Room was known for its large, global wine list, from bargain bottles to pricier ones. It opened on East 3rd Street in 2012.
Downtown won't be without a wine bar for long. Retail shop and tasting room Texas Reds and Whites, which will focus on smaller Texas wineries, will open sometime this late summer on Red River.
