Rockit Room – Inner Richmond
Rockit Room is a bar I can’t quite figure out. The design is modern and lush, with dark lighting and swanky brown leather booths. Everything about Rockit Room whispers classic bar. But then you notice several giant flat screen tv’s at the bar, along with a huge flat screen video advertisement for events at the bar, and an equally big flat screen jukebox. I found these thing somewhat jarring in an otherwise tasteful setting. This would be a great bar for a date if there weren’t flashing screens everywhere causing constant distraction.
But Rockit Room has a lot going for it too. In addition to billiards the bar has Jenga, which is the perfect game to play while drinking. Half the fun is reading what other drunk people who came before wrote on the Jenga blocks.
The seating at Rockit Room is perfect for small groups. The comfy curved booths make it easy to maintain conversations with everyone in your party.
The oddest and possibly most awesome feature of Rockit Room is their Pringle chips dispenser. It’s a vending machine specifically made to distribute those little cans of perfectly formed dehydrated potato chips!
The only drawback other than the T.V.’s is the price of their drinks. I never thought I would have to pay $6 for well and $8 for call at a neighborhood bar in the Inner Richmond. I will add this bar to my mental list of places to go during happy hour only.
