For what it is, Roscoe’s rocks. It is a gay sports bar, which is a peculiar concoction. Lady Gaga or Miley Cyrus or Kelly Rowland playing on the bass while the Dodgers or Sooners or Suns play. Bizarre at first, but slowly the two pool tables, three dart boards and seven or so flat screens grow on you.

The atmosphere is chill even on their busy nights. Drinks are cheap and it is always seems to be 2-4-1 time, which makes the drinks even cheaper. They are generally strong. No sissy stuff here. The food is high-notch bar fare. The crowd is sometimes attractive, sometimes old, sometimes female, but the feel is certainly always neighborhood.

Roscoes on Seventh is located at 4531 N. 7th St. in Midtown — 602.285.0833

The DPJ Yelper of the Week offers honest insight on a Downtown business to help you explore your core. DPJ hopes that by partnering with Yelp to spread the good word about well-loved Downtown spots, you’ll spread your patronage and support local business.

Yelp is a social networking and local search engine that provides the reviews of places and things that matter to you. Simply log in, pick a place and queue up your inner critic. You can write a beaming review of your favorite gelato spot, or a scathing portrayal of that rental car facility you had to use after that curb came out of nowhere. Yelp’s reviews are at once honest, uncensored, wildly hilarious and true. Heck, the site must be doing something right — it had 26 million viewers just last month!
