What is proper attire?
Proper attire at The Redhead simply means "business casual." We do not allow athletic wear of any type (nothing that looks like gym shoes, tennis shoes, t-shirts, jerseys, sweatshirts or hoodies, hats on men.) nor ripped or torn clothing. 


Do you take reservations?
We take credit card reservations (requires a minimum spent per seat) for those who want to hold a table for a certain time. We do not reserve seats at the bar or the piano even with a credit card. Most customers come in without a reservation and let our staff assist them in finding a table. Our staff will get you a table as soon as they are able.


Is there a cover charge?
The Redhead never has a cover charge. During the late fall, winter, and early spring seasons we do have a required complimentary coatcheck.

Since Illinois does not allow smoking and drinking in the same place (inside or outside), how does The Redhead accommodate smokers?

The Redhead has a covered, seated, comfortable (and during the winter...heated!) smoke area. Come smoke with us! 


Can you accommodate larger parties of 5-15 people?
Yes we can accommodate larger parties; however our seating area for these parties is limited, so arriving early is recommended. Again, you can see a host or hostess when you arrive and they will do their best to accommodate your party. As an option, you can make a credit card reservation (requires a minimum spent per seat). 


Do you have valet parking?
No we do not have valet parking. There is some street parking in the area as well as a parking garage across Ontario Street.


Do you offer Karaoke?


Do you accept trade script and which kind?
Yes we accept trade script from Art of Barter, Continental Trade Exchange (also known as IMS) and Illinois Trade Association (also IMS).
