Behind the Bar: Roosevelt


Appropriately named after the exuberant American presidents, Roosevelt (933 17th Ave SW) is a true jack-of-all-trades on the avenue. The sexy red and black décor makes this huge space feel intimate and the Edison bulbs that light the room give it an old-fashioned class. There’s a pulse in the room that appeals to all crowds – a high-energy vibe that is certainly contagious for a night out with friends or an afternoon of making new ones watching the game.


Roosevelt focuses on refined American food, highballs and cocktails, making it the ideal pick for a night out. Gentlemen, the Roosevelt Caesar may interest you, kicking the night (or weekend brunch) into high gear.


A delight for the spice addict, this signature drink is made with UV Sriracha vodka, horseradish, beef jerky and hot peppers. And ladies, perhaps the Pin Up is more your style – Alizé Red Passion, Absolut vodka, fresh pineapple and orange juice finished with prosecco. Featuring daily specials and a killer happy hour on Sundays, Roosevelt has all the makings of the American dream.

Need an excuse to visit? Just think of a trip to Roosevelt as a (thirst-quenching) pursuit of happiness. Image-1-6
