Tonight's the last night at the old Redlight Red Light

Seems like we've been talking about it forever, but it's finally happening: Redight Red Light Beer Parlour is leaving its cozy Bennett Road location and moving to its new home in Audubon Park, at 2810 Corrine Drive. The bar has called  Bennett Road home since 2008, when it moved out of its original Winter Park spot in Hannibal Square. Tonight is the last night on Bennett Road, so if you're the nostalgic type, stop by tonight before 11 p.m. and try not to be too sad – you get to bid farewell to the the tiny parking lot, the narrow bar space and the fact that Redlight was sort of an oasis of awesome on a stretch of street that didn't have a lot going on. In the new location, Redlight helps create more critical mass in a a neighborhood that's busting at the seams these days (see our Best of Orlando 2012, "Best Place to Buy a House if You Could Afford One" category) – the craft-beer bar will be right down the parking lot from Park Ave CDs and Junior's diner, across the street from Stardust Video and Coffee and Big Daddy's, and just a parking long over from Bikes, Beans and Bordeaux.
