The first room is so tiny! and since it was a Friday they didn't have the loungey area open. The bigger dance floor opened later in the night which was nice. Funniest part is when all the hoochies get up on that little "stage" right where you enter the big dance area and try to show off all their dance moves when really it's not that great. At the same time it was just gross to see haha. Good music except for the DJ in the big room who replayed a song twice within 15 minutes. Come on mannnn spice it up! -1 the crowd was okay. especially -1 for those guys who followed us the whole night. no thanks -1 for the squishy first room where the bartenders aren't looking too thrilled to be there

SEXY! people from the suburbs should avoid this place. It is way to cool for them. Food was better than it needs to be. check out the chowder. I want a vat of it next time. Hey put that on the menu. Vat of soup. Thanks T-man.

So I am to guess that this place just opened, judging from GQ's review. Either way, i went here Saturday nite, a good friend of mine (Actor/Party King Keith Collins) had a movie premiere that nite, and the after party was held at Roam. This very cool and sleak looking lounge is located in a part of town I thought i knew better than anyone, that was, until i went here. First of all, when you walk in, you have to get past these two huge white doors, the buildup to see the place mounts, and when the doors open, you're not disappointed. The bar is on the right, with cool blue lights, but it's still dark enough to work as an after hours (does it though? I'll find out for you and get bakk). There are only 3 tables on the main floor unfornately, but the tables are good sized, big enough really to fit 2 small groups, or one really big group, which was the case on Saturday nite. After walking in, to your immediate left are the stairs that takes you to the downstairs level of Roam, which has a smaller bar but more seats, as well as a separate DJ, who on Saturday was trying to figure out how to get the set to work. This was exceptionally annoying to me, being a DJ myself: maybe you should have this squared away? I agree with GQ on his take of the downstairs area, it does have a cigar lounge sort of feel to it... The ultimate feature of this really cool lounge, outside of the drawers to put your shoes/bags (which is awesome), is of course, the private elevated table that i was sitting at when we finally decided to get bottle service at around midnite (the open bar was closed by then). You go past the banquettes and the bar on the main floor and go up a staircase that is past the bathroom, and it takes you up to where the DJ booth is. Behind the DJ booth, is your very own private table (it's practically a private room), which is maybe twice the size of the ones on the main floor. Basically you never have to even see anyone else in the club unless you go to the balcony and look over. It's nice to have that because by this point Roam was already JAM PAKKED with people, with even more on the outside begging and bargaining to get in. It really cuts out the people stepping on your shoes, bumping into you, spilling your drinks, or spilling their drinks on you. All in all I would say the place was amazing. I would normally not give a place with DJ problems 5 stars, but that private upstairs table made up for it 10 fold. Not to mention the upstairs DJ was absolutely on point, especially after he played "i've got a feeling" by the Blakk Eyed Peas (the world's worst song) and he comes over to me rite after and says, this is my least favorite song to play. Couldn't have said it better myself...
