Second Shot Photo Report: PSFK At The Red Piano Bar International Cabernet Day
PSFK visits a Cabernet-exclusive wine tasting in a classic Chicago haunt to learn about the different flavors of the bold red.
The Redhead Piano Bar is an alluring little anachronism that exists in Chicago on 16 W. Ontaria Street. Most of the ‘trendy’ beverage servers in the city seem to reside along the west side, but Redhead is an establishment that still benefits those who want to go for a classic drink while remaining downtown. Inside, the decor takes you back a simpler time when drinks could be paired with a live piano player taking requests, and not his DJ equivalent.
Thursday September 2nd marked International Cabernet Day. One of those wonderful ‘made-up’ holidays that people are more likely to celebrate than the real kind. Redhead was kind enough to host a Chicago tasting for the day which featured Cabernets from across the world and some sharp sommeliers who were thrilled to share the stories behind the wines they were pouring.
