4EG’s new bar opens with a tribute to President Teddy Roosevelt at Liberty Center

The Roosevelt Room, the first bar-only concept at Liberty Center, opened its doors on Saturday, October 21 adjacent to the AC Marriott.

"Liberty Center is a thriving area for shopping, dining and entertainment," said Bob Deck, managing partner for 4EG, the local company that owns and operates The Roosevelt Room, among 13 others. "We are excited to be able to position ourselves as the neighborhood bar for residents, retailers, and visitors alike."

Guests of The Roosevelt Room will delight in the dramatically stylized interior, featuring subtle tributes to the storied life and narrative of the 26th President of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt. Among these tributes is a mounted moose, paying homage to the founder of the Progressive Party, once quoted as saying he felt "fit as a bull moose" following an assassination attempt. A mural to the left of the entrance features a rearing horse, a nod to Roosevelt’s position as Lieutenant Colonel of the First United States Volunteer Cavalry, more commonly known as the Rough Riders.

The craft cocktail menu further reinforces referred beverage, one he often enjoyed while watching tennis matches: the mint julep. Six other cocktails follow it with themed titles. Wine is available on draft or from the bottle with 6 or 9 oz. pours.  The robust beer list features nine rotating taps and more than 30 bottled or canned beers. Happy Hour at The Roosevelt Room is Monday through Friday, from 4 p.m.-7 p.m., and offers half-price drinks.

On weekend nights, regional and national DJs will provide the soundtrack for a nightlife atmosphere, complemented by a 24"-mirror ball in a back room that doubles as a space for private parties.

The Roosevelt Room is 4EG's fourteenth location and the first in Liberty Township.

"The Roosevelt Room is an incredibly unique space. People will undoubtedly be wowed when they enter. It's the kind of place that people are going to want to show off to their friends and guests," said Deck.
