It's official: Salem Evening Douchebag Population to Rise

Red Lulu Cocina & Tequila Bar is moving into the old Strega location on Lafayette Street. Douchebags rejoice!

I know, that sounds harsh, but tell me I'm wrong. First, look at this.

Tell me it doesn't scream douchebag hang out. Also, stylish hostesses? Dress-to-impress interviews? Skill doesn't sound necessary, as long as you'll fit the vibe. If you do fit the vibe, hey, they're hiring, and with the prices, the tips should be decent, head down to the Waterfront Hotel on Wednesday, from 12-8 for a "casting call interview."

Still don't believe me? Check out the toilets at Lolita in Boston. Lolita is the restaurant opening Red Lulu.

Just wow.

Yes, even the toilets are sporting Ed Hardy tattoos. (This pic and joke totally stolen from Boston Yelper Michael C.)

Still aren't quite sure that this place is geared at the DB population? After you've dined on expensive Mexican, with some even more expensive tequila, margaritas and sangria thrown in, you too, will probably be blessed with these, no extra charge!

Yup, free temporary tattoos with every meal! Who doesn't want that?!

The menu itself sounds pretty interesting, if pricey. (I'd link to the menu of Red Lulu in CT, but the entire website is laced with really loud music that starts as soon as the page loads. Menu is almost identical.) Dining in what has been described as both a "Vampire Bordello" and the "set of Fangtasia," not so much. At least to me. I'm sure to some people this place sounds great. Twilight fans, this place may be for you.

I love the idea of a douchebag hangout in Salem. Keep them all together. And hey, they have to eat too. Nobody should deny them that. Red Lulu plans to open in October.


  1. We'll try it at some point after the October madness subsides. Based on the other location in CT, it has some promise. Hipster I can handle, hipster DB not so much. We'll see which one it turns out to be.

    You'll have to get a sitter that night, G, and come out with us!

  2. Q: How many hipsters does it take to screw in a light bulb?
    A: It is a really obscure number you have probably never heard of.

  3. I can't believe I haven't commented on this yet.

  4. I saw video from the grand opening. sure sounded loud
    could just be grand opening noise, but it was REALLY loud


Don't forget, keep it klassy!
