Haven't been there in a few years, so I was surprised to see the recent interior changes, which really opened up the space, but still retained the old feel of the building. Good drinks and good food too!

If you love music (especially anything played on a piano) then be sure to go for dueling piano nights in Thursday’s. Be prepared to tip if you want your song played. This place is a lot of fun and I highly recommend it!

If you're gay and you want a gay bar and you're in Chicago, here you go. The only problem is - check the hours because Roscoe's doesn't want to pay out for a better liquor license, so they close early as compared to other bars,...More

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.

The place had 2 rooms, with different music. At the back room there was dueling pianos, and the musicians were taking guests song requests. They really made the environment very cheerful and fun. The bartenders seemed to be good, but did not see them really...More
