BJ Roosters sits directly next door to The Heretic on Cheshire Bridge. And some nights it has a relatively low-key dive-bar feel with people shooting pool or relaxing outside on the patio. But at other times the place comes alive with go-go dancers in banana hammocks on top of the bar. The turn-up nights bring out a wide demographic from older gays to those freshly out of the closet. It’s not quite enough to stave off our nostalgia for Swingin’ Richards (RIP), but we always appreciate a night at the Roost.
