Reviews for Roost


Cheap and powerful is how I describe the well drinks at The Roost. The mix of old barflies, hipsters, and local musicians makes this an exciting and fun bar. There's a popcorn machine if you get the munchies - and many people here do. During the day the bartenders usually have some kind of Mexican food for the taking (tamales or nachos) with makes gives the bar a communal-like feel.

nothing catchy here – can't believe a bunch of supposed cool "hipsters" would even spend 10 minutes here after viewing or listening to that sad excuse for a jukebox. I screamed when I saw the crap for music that they had, and I swiftly escaped.

cool for chilling – Despite its unattractive, unassuming exterior, the Roost is dope inside - all dark and red. Perfect for rolling out there after work for a couple of hours to drink, eat the free popcorn, and just chill out. None of the Westside steez here.

the epitome of a neighborhood dive – strong, somewhat cheap drinks (they've raised their prices over the course of the last couple of years, but they are still reasonably priced...) in a smokey, dimly lit hole in the wall -- precisely my idea of what a good bar is.

this place is not for everybody and that's good. the blue collar working set that frequent this watering hole are friendly to us young whippersnappers. i guess we all enjoy the atmosphere of a place that's "real" without the manufactured gloss of a bar like "the bigfoot lodge" or other hollywood dreck.

my absolute favorite place to drink.

Worth searching out – The Roost isn't for everyone. It probably isn't for most people, but I love it for its (very) worn charm, dim lighting, and--maybe most importantly--because they allow smoking inside. It's probably best the lights are kept low--it doesn't feel like a very clean place.
