We went to Roe for a my gf bday 1-29-11. Booked bottle service and didn't even make it in. We had 12ppl with us. My friends and I was pulled out of the line by this black old ass bouncer with a penguin suit on looking like jefferson from fresh prince of bel air, because one of the guys pants was so called a little baggy. Sorry sir, but he can't help if he's a little big boned. We asked him what was the real reason why? He didn't no what to say. We had the promotor talk to "jefferson" but he give him the same excuse. I guess he was top flight sercurity that night, so it was a no go for us. Promotor guy said he had no problems with are dress code and he was sorry he couldn't get us in. He even tryed to get us in another club down the street. But we said thanks but no thanks. The night was ruined already. What a bad place to do business. On top of that. The workers act like they don't know what's going on. Like this dumb ass blonde head chick that was standing outside next to the tree looking all lost and sh!t. I asked her a simple question on who runs the door. She looked at me all dumb founded and said, iono? Great! Thanks! What a job you have. Get the fcuk out of here... So a change of plans for use. Thanks Club Roe and bootleg sercurity taking there $10 an hour job way to damn serious. Get a real Job, big for nothing ass bouncers. Thanks for ruining the whole night for everybody. I would Not recommand this club for any nightliife events, bday parties or even a stop in for a drink. Having dumb, retarded useless ass employees working there is not the business Roe owners. Hello! Hi! Get the picture yet with all the bad rateclub reviews?? Word of mouth is a killer tho. Don't waste your time or your guests time going to Roe. Find another venue to go too. Better yet, go next door to thirsty bear. You will get in with no problem.

I went here last night (Tuesday 1/8/08) for Salsa night. Let me just say right off the top that a had a good time. On Tuesday night's I've been going to Long Beach for salsa classes that are given by http://LatinDanceForev..., and overall i like the class, but I wanted to try something new this week, so King King was the spot since I saw that they have dance lessons from "9-10p". It was funny because I arrived there at 9p on the dot thinking "Oh I hope I'm not late for the class" but then as I was about to walk in, the bouncer named Pasha told me that they were not even open yet and I was like "Oh, okay" and then I heard a manager dude come from inside and yell out to Pasha "Hey, I don't want any more F*cking people inside other than that girl!!" or something. After hearing that, I figured I definitely had some time to kill. So I just talk a walk over to Hollywood and Highland and when I returned (about 9:40ish), like magic, the club was OPEN...tadaaah!! The cover was $12 (sounds good) and the Salsa lesson had just begun, but the thing that I realized as soon as I walked in was that this wasn't the type of class I'd been going to where you pair-off with a girl. It was basically everybody solo following the instructor. The lesson was very very basic with a couple of cool steps that I hadn't done before. Overall, the lesson is really only good if you've never danced Salsa before. It was definitely a "Lesson" and not a "Class", which is what I'll continue to go to, because in a class you at get to try different moves with someone. I think the lesson finished aound 10:30 and then the DJ was playing some music before the band came on about 11:15-11:30. Once the band got started though, it was all good. The Salsa the played was nice, and so were the songs the DJ played in between band sets. The club was not filled to the brim which was cool, so that eveyone dancing could have a lil' breathing room, and there were enough lovely ladies to keep myself and most fellas dancing so the ratio was pretty decent. I also liked that the club had a chill vibe and some tables and booths around the perimeter of the dance floor, the crowd was racially diverse and that you could get decked out if you want to but there was no crazy dress code, so that's always cool. I'll definitely be back here for Salsa Night, but skip the lesson.
