All hype and nothing to show for it...... For a place that calls its self the Buddha bar does not have the huge Buddha statue, you ask why, they where having legal issue because the design was copyrighted, so they removed it. - BOOO on you The place has two colors RED and BLACK - its like begin inside a red velvet cake, the seats where comfy and the over all decor is OK. The crowd, is 30 and up, and all dressed up. I don't understand why you have to over dress to come to this place, its not a charity event. They just make it our more than it should be. The music is ok but the base came be to loud and in a short while you might have a pounding head ache. Though a DJ comes in around 9 30 or so, he is not good at all can not mix two simple songs or transition between them. The wait staff acts like they are the best thing on earth, the drinks are kind of pricey $15+ a drink and let me tell you it is not that great. Had the berry Mojave it taste like Tylenol PM..UM NO Had pricey drinks before in my life but they where worth the price and tasted good but these drinks are not that great, tried my friends it is nothing special at all but not worth the $$$ Here is the thing i don't get the most after 10PM they add 20% gratuity for what???? what do you do walk around once every 30 min and ask do we need more alcohol - We got the check at 9 30 and they still added the 20%, im sure there watch was not ahead by half an hour. The bathroom attended turns the bathroom to his own private cubical and sits there and talks on the phone and expects a tip - YA OK. Ya this place is totally the opposite of everything that i heard of and thought it might be. SOOOOO overly hyped for no reason and has nothing to back the hype.

I have been to Roe several times for the dancing and the drinks, and I've been more and more disappointed each time. First, the bouncers are complete douche bags who think this place is some kind of elite club for the rich and famous. Second, the D.J. seems to have stumbled out of a 7th grade dance and into this sad club. He was mixing the worst of the 80s and 90s, and to make sure that we didn't even enjoy those songs, he only played 30 seconds of each one. Third, the watered down drinks are overpriced. I'd rather go to etiquette in the TL and hang out with the trannies. At least there I can get a decent drink at a reasonable price, and hear an entire song. Forget about Roe. The City has much better venues to offer.

Looks amazing! Sometimes you go to a show and wonder if the promoters booked the wrong venue... I went to go see Devendra Banhart in what turned out to be a LEGENDARY show. He invited people to dance (which we did), stand on the chairs (which some did), and get up on stage (which it seemed all in attendance did). Management came out and said the show was over. Devendra said "no" and it went back and forth for about 15 minutes until the band just started to play after being told to leave. The show went on. One of the best shows of my life aided by the great acoustics of the venue. Special guest singer was Gael Garcia Bernal. You'll likely spot a celeb here, but I ain't even worried bout dat. Great venue.
