There’s a lot to crow about at Roosters. It’s been a cornerstone of the Valley’s country scene since 1972 with all the amenities you’d expect: a large stage and red-and-black checkered dance floor in the front, pool tables in the back, and rustic-wood ambiance and photos of Johnny Cash and other legendary recording artists throughout. There are also 12 tap handles built into a repurposed fire truck cab behind the bar. Roosters has hosted local country, rock, and country-rock artists for more than five decades. They also play outdoor gigs on its giant smoking patio, which is equipped with a second stage, two grills, and multiple beer tubs. The patrons are as solid here as the brick walls, friendly folk who say hello when you walk through the door, introduce you to their boozing buddies, razz the bartenders, or sing along with the lyrics during its many live shows, open mics, and karaoke nights.
