Success! Thanks for posting your review of Roscoe's. You’ve done the world some good today.

they need to be more open to other rasis at the door

On Sunday August 8, 2010 at approximately 11:30pm i decided to invite my friend to Rosco's bar where i never had a problem feeling discriminated by the color of my skin. On that Sunday i felt so singled out cause my friend had a Mexican id that looked exactly like him. your door Security Bob took his id and did not even try to give us the opportunity to get it back. he said ""you tried this before, same thing every w... view more

A really great place

I noticed there wasn't any updated reviews of this bar. I was made to feel very welcome. The music was fine; both patrons and bartenders were friendly. I highly recommend it.

Needs Improvement

Everything you hear about this bar is true...both positive and negative. It is a fun bar if you tend to skew younger and are from the suburbs. I don't understand why that phenomenon occurs, but it is true. It can be fun if you want to go with your (younger) friends and shoot some pool or dance. As with bars that attract that age demographic, they do tend to overcharge for drinks, not to mention a cover (a cover!... view more

Quiet Gay Bar

Strong drinks, friendly bartenders and the chance to have a good conversation. The music is unobtrusive and the snacks are good too.

Great for happy hour

Roscoe's defines the epicenter of gay Chicago, being located at Roscoe & Halsted (that epicenter is migrating in recent years, however). The bar boasts some of the hottest tenders in the area, while still being friendly too. They don't pour the greatest however, but beauty before brains ;-) j/k guys. Roscoe's is probably best outside of the late night times. It's especially fun Sunday afternoons in the summer.

great bar

If you?re in your twenties or thirties Roscoe?s is probably the best gay bar to meet people in the Boystown area. It?s a pretty fun spot. I highly recommend getting trashed Sunday afternoons during the long island iced tea special. Very fun. There is some attitude at the bar during busy nights. Overall the bar is a bit small, but it?s the best around so enjoy it!!

horrible staff

picture this: you leave your personal belongings in the bar, they close the place down, you go back to get your items, and the whole staff is screaming ""we can't open the door and give you your things""....meanwhile, saying ""get them tomorrow"" while waving the stuff in front of your face...bottom line- a bunch of washed up men who see their position as a bartender or bar staff as a means of showing some misguided ... view more

Good Times

I think that Roscoe's is one of the funnest bars in Chicago! If you are either a gay man or a woman that loves them you will have a good time. Drinks are Great, Music is Kicken, and the croud is always outgoing and inviting.

I'm a Roscoe Ho

Well what can I say this is the bar with the youngest crowd and the cutest boiz. Although the crowd varies little with alot of the regulars stopping in, this bar is still the probably the best Chicago has to offer. The measured drinks are bit ridiculous but whatever, because the pitchers on Fridays and Sundays more then make up for the weaker mixed drinks. One or two pitchers and even the biggest drinker will be b... view more
