Lame – Only blowhards @ this overpriced stupid bar.
Rude service, bad music – I showed up around 10:30 on a Thursday night to meet some friends. I only had enough to buy a beer, so i went to the bar and ordered a drink, upon recieving my drink i paid the bartender the cost of the drink, but could not afford to give him a tip at that time. After grabbing my drink and taking it to the table, i turned around to glance at the bar and i noticed that the bartender and his other bartender friend were throwing me the thumbs down in front of all my friends, i felt very much offended and appalled at their actions. I feel that they should not have carried it that far, there are much more professional ways to handle not being tipped. Also the music did not match, and would often switch from a slow to upbeat tempo, and i felt cheated of a better, consistent vibe. Overall, i would not reccomend going to Rookees, at all, their are much better, more welcoming bars in the Ventura, such as Sans Souci and Hush. Also a friend of mine was waiting to order his drink for a few mins, when another customer cut him off and ordered a drink before him. My friend notified the bartender of the customers actions, and was rudely told, "I'm not going to take that sh*t in this bar, you either leave, or be patient." Anyway, all the bartenders at that bar are male, it would be better preferrably to have a few more females with better attitudes who treat customers as they should be treated.
