A swinging crowd of veteran nightclubbers hovers around the piano, occasionally helping weekend favorite Kenny Phelps sing "Sweet Caroline," a Jerry Lee Lewis medley and Phil Collins' "Take a Look at Me Now." Besides the SRO piano-side crowd, the next best seats are around the rectangular bar that dominates the dimly lit main room, its walls littered with old playbills, music books and photos of movie stars and lounge singers. The Redhead attracts a core of upscale regulars, most of them nattily dressed and able to afford the $360 for a bottle of Cuvee Perignon Rose. Prime people-watching inside this place, and they'll probably be watching you, too.
