Went out with girlfriends and this place was so much fun! Friendly people everywhere! It was basically techno/remix type music all night. It was very crowded so if you want a little space I would not suggest this place. We were sweating within 10 minutes.

Visited here late August 2015. It's a fun place - bar in the front, dance area/stage in the back. Good mix of people. Cheap drinks!

Wanted to review this place which has gone downhill from the time I met my partner 10 years ago. I had always had nostalgia about Roscoe's because of my personal history. I had been there a few times throughout the years and thought it wasn't...More
