Prepare for an old timer post, where I rattle my cane and yell at the youngsters who blah blah blah don't know any better. Public Bar used to be Five, a legendary club where I even DJed. After Five shut down and it was converted into a sports bar I stayed away. The main room has a crazy amount of TVs and so getting your team's game on shouldn't be that much of a problem, if any problem at all. The bartenders that we had were quick to get us our beverages whether they were beers or shots. The rooftop is home to Sunglass Sundays, which ironically means that even though the club shut down and a sports bar opened up that the roof still continues to have parties and DJs. During summer it seems that a lot of people check the place out. I still miss Five though. When I was in the main bar area drinking I had flashbacks to the days where I used to DJ in the main room booth that's no longer there. However if you never knew Five, then you'd probably enjoy this place. if I was in the hood I'd probably go there. I'm going to go have some Metamucil now, this old man needs his fiber.

Just went to this place last night and it was surprisingly good! Early in the night the music was awesome on the first floor and there were an unusually large number of attractive men, far outnumbering the women. Everyone seemed to be in mid 20s to early 30s, which was nice because I prefer to avoid the young scruffy college kid scene. The bouncers do get a little zealous at times... my friend was thrown out just for "looking too drunk," but at least that keeps the people who really do need to go home from getting sloppy drunk on the dance floor. My drinks were strong but I was sipping patron, $10 a drink, not too bad. By about 2:30 am the music wasn't as good anymore, but we only made it to the second floor, maybe it would have been better another floor up. I had a really fun night though!
The Black Rooster is great. It has all the right components to make it a great bar. They have a wide range of liquor, including a lot of Irish whisky. They also have more than 10 beers on tap. The food is also very good. Burgers are delicious and half price on Tuesdays. The ribs are also very good, the meat falls off the bone. The staff at the Rooster rocks. Service is fast and servers/bartenders are really funny. I love the Rooster and I'm sure that if you are are a nice, friendly, person, you will too. It's not a fancy, it's a good place to hang out, have, a drink, and be merry. Cheers.
