On its busiest nights, this corner saloon is like a horny, Gen-Y romper room. But the bustling nights are fewer and further between these days as increasing competition on Halsted Street continues to woo the pretty young things elsewhere. Still, Roscoe's has a beautiful main bar, a dance floor, two back bars, a separate billiards area, an outdoor patio and all the Lady Gaga you desire, so it's hard to imagine those youngsters will stay away very long.
