I love love love this place. I have came here a couple of times to see a few concerts, most recently Ra Ra Riot. I am always excited to see someone at this venue just because the venue is small in comparison to other places I have been, and I love the ambience of the place. It looks like an old theatre that is not a place where you can see kick ass indie bands that aren't too big yet. Drink wise, is also really reasonable. A beer for $5 is a steal in this city, and the fact you get to hear awesome music is just an added bonus. You do have the option to wander upstairs where you get a much better view of the band than you would if you stood in the back. Highly recommend seeing a band here if you can, you won't regret it.

This is a very cool bar. I like the atmosphere, the bartender, Diane, it has a piano in the back. I usually come here to meet up with my friend Courtney for drinks. They sure know how to make a stiff drink here. They don't mess around. I have been to bars that pours light, average, heavy but never have I had drinks poured like this place. When asked why don't you serve different top shelf alcohol. Diane simply said........we want to keep the cost down so that we can sell drinks cheap to our customers. I was very impressed with that answer. They have a whole bunch of aqua martini's here laying out on the bar. Almost grabbed one as a back when Courtney told me it was to chill the glasses.........ohhhhhhh!!! I'm such an idiot. I ordered 1 drink, an espresso martini made with van gogh espresso vodka, frangelico, squeeze of lemon. It's probably the best that I have ever had. It's refreshing, had that hint of espresso bean and I don't even drink coffee. It's not on their menu so you have to ask Diane to make it. When you come to a bar..........you don't want to feel rushed. It's a martini bar so kick back, sip, and enjoy.

My friends and I came here to celebrate Halloween 2008. If you were there, I was the golddigger. Almost everyone was dressed up and there were several people not dressed at all--as in, nothing but their birthday suits. Now you wish you went, huh? I enjoyed the three different levels of music, which included hip-hop, techno, and rock. It got really hot, humid, and hellish as the night progressed, but that's to be expected at any decent nightclub on fright night. My only gripe was the price of drinks. I like to pay my own way, but I could've done some serious damage here just to maintain a buzz for the night. A shot of Three Wise Men was 10 bucks! That's more than the French Toast with Butter Pecan Sauce at Brenda's French Soul Food, which I'd take over three wise men any day--let alone three hot men! I'd definitely come back to Roe, though. It's chic, spacious, and fun. If there were actually hot guys that came here, I'd give it a perfect five stars. Alas, we can't have our cake and eat it, too.
