Solid and fun back-ally bar. Drinks are a little pricy, but better than the surrounding areas for sure. A lot of people inside, so it can be a little crowded. I had fun here, and did not have any problems. Enjoyable with friends on the...More

We booked a party for 200 people. The website suggests 250 people could fit into the "Music Room". Not even close. We did all of the booking details over the phone. I am sorry to say, this is one of the worse venues we have...More

Bouncer told my wife and I to leave saying we were too “intoxicated” to come in, even though we had only had 1 drink with our dinner. I asked if it was because my wife was of another race and the bouncer stuttered and had...More

I was happy to see one of my favorite bands again in this downtown city venue, totally ingenious. Great food, great ambience and nice crowd to go with the gypsy rock.

I'm so glad we found this hidden gem. I went here with some friends and we had a great time. The drinks, music and ambiance were great. We even played some shuffleboard. We'll definitely be back.

Went to see a concert but it's so much more ! It's down an alley on the left side - you'll see dumpsters, a bike rack and a glowing red neon sign . If you think it'll be difficult to find I put up pics...More

This was our last call place to go while bar hopping downtown. It was so cool and had a feeling of going to a secret place that only a select few know about. Music was good and bartenders were attentive. Definitely will spend more time...More

Place was really a great find! I was glad the band picked this venue. Staff is really nice, music room is small but perfect for intimate shows. The Rose Room is lovely and has great music, food, and drink in a cozy atmosphere.
