Join well-dressed young professionals for drinks and dancing at Washington Avenue’s well-designed Roosevelt Lounge. Situated caddy corner from Taps House of Beers, Roosevelt’s urban-chic building is marked by a weathered steel exterior and a large patio space.
Inside the dimly-lit interior is sultry and dark—chandeliers and candle light cast a soft glow over shimmery mosaic tiles, dark wood accents and plush sofas. Behind the bar, a DJ reigns over the pretty crowd, playing a mix of Top 40, new-wave 80s and house music, as PYTs sway to the beat on the dance floor.
If the music’s too loud and you’re looking for fresh air, head to the spacious patio, where a retractable roof ensures that the scene will remain a year-round staple. In the winter, space heaters keep things comfortable and the crowd happy. Valet parking is available, but it’s usually possible to find a spot on neighboring streets, too.
