BarFly's Review of Red Flag
The little corner space on southeast 28th Street has changed ownership quite a lot over the years, and its latest incarnation, the Red Flag, no less dubious than its predecessors, is defying the odds as a kind of rustic hipster clubhouse.
Defiantly lowbrow, nouveau-divey in veneration of the traditional, rundown neighborhood aesthetic, Red Flag flaunts D.I.Y. punk sensibilities. Intentionally nostalgic, or unironic homage?
A single, cramped gauntlet runs the length of an uncomfortably small space that almost justifies gathering ‘round the tv set for movies.
Happy Hour: Open until 7pm

Good place. Staff there is pretty cool, I always run into someone I think is rad and its dark, really dark, which I like! Great idea with the no smoking thing before it becomes law. The Vern still should have beaten these guys in the bar softball league though, ha!
Mostly young would-be hipsters from surrounding neighborhood. Nice folks for the most part, no aggression (go to Chen Yin for that), chatty but not overly loud...even Metal Wednesdays aren't likely to impair your hearing. However, the movies from the owner's personal stash (which are played nightly) leave a LOT to be desired. Terrific and pretty bartenders who do indeed smell nice. Good, if small neighborhood bar if you're under 40. Over 40, you can be the resident curmudgeon.
I love Red Flag. The bartenders are attentive and they pour a stiff drink. They have a few tables outside for smokers. Good, chill, and low-key bar. The food is cheap and good. Great breakfast.
Booze, smoke-free, bartenders smell good, chili dogs. Whatever, you've been there. It's good. Not as smokey or grungy as Beulahland or Chen Yen, not hoity toity like the rest of the shit on 28th. Dig it.
