My favorite club in the City 10/13/2006

After DNA Lounge has fallen out of favor, I am happy to say that I have found a new spot in the City. Directly across from the infamous Gold Club, Roe has got to be one of the most nondescript locales you can find (or not find) - an old brick building with no logos - but once inside, you will discover a whole 'nother world. It's nothing too fancy, but it's certainly a more classy crowd than you would find at places such as Space 550, Mighty, or 1015. How classy? Well, let's just say I randomly run into the likes of gazillionaire pro sports players here on occasion. Troy Murphy, Andris Biedrins, and Zarko Cabarkapa are regulars. Also, aren't you guys tired of going to clubs to hear only one genre of music? Don't get me wrong, I like hip hop or dance music as much as anyone, but being bomdarded with the same thing over and over, night after night can become quite taxing. I know there are many of you out there with an eclectic taste, who can feel just as comfortable enjoying hair metal, new jack swing, old school rap, 80's, teenybopper pop, or classic rock. If that's the case, this is the place for you. The DJ literally plays everything under the kitchen sink. Best of all, everyone in attendance grooves along with it. Oh, and must I mention the plethora of incredible scenery? The old DNA set the bar pretty high, but Roe seems to be up to the task, and primed to take over the position as top dog in the City. more

Editorial

  • The Scene
    Design-wise, the emphasis in the ground-floor main room is on patrons seeing themselves and others from a variety of angles: Large, rectangular mirrors dominate a long brick wall lined with plush, dark dinettes. A tiled bar backed by more mirrors commands the opposite side of the space, providing plenty of scoping opportunities for table diners and tipplers in the adjoining lounge area. Depending on the hour, the crowd ranges from after-work professionals to a clubbier set dressed to dance, enjoy a drink at the bars (one on each floor) or, again, just plain see and be seen.

    The Food
    Chef Alvin San's international menu leans toward Southeast Asia, from the trio-of-seaweed starter and the yellowfin tuna wellington entree to the green-tea-and-Coke ice cream float dessert. Alas, the seaweed, which comes in three different flavors, doesn't rise very much above the standard offering you might find next to an appetizer at a more moderately priced Japanese restaurant. And while the aforementioned wellington is somewhat adventurous in concept, in execution it comes in at about the same level of flavor as the more staid Niman Ranch ribeye, which is average at best.

    Hits: The service is friendly and attentive, and dishes such as the quite tasty spicy-crab-and-tuna-roll starter demonstrate what the kitchen is capable of.

    Misses: The standard for that roll should be applied to the bi plates, which aren't enough of an achievement to merit the higher-end prices.
