The Robusto Room is scheduled to open in the next couple of weeks, bringing a new live jazz venue and cigar room to the Park Meadows entertainment district. Owners Peter and Sara Roth own the Stogies and Bogeys cigar store inside the mall, and will open a new cigar shop alongside the jazz club. Peter grew up loving the jazz scene at El Chapultapec, and he and his wife have some great ideas for the new spot, making it sound like a stellar addition to the local scene for the south Metro area. Look for a wine list featuring a 30/30/90 concept; 30 wines under $30 rated 90 points or higher by Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, or Robert Parker. Cigar enthusiasts will find over 600 boxes of cigars to choose from, humidors for sale and humidor lockers for rent. And for jazz lovers, check out live jazz on Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday nights, with hip hop, pop, jazz and Latin music spun by DJs every Monday, Tuesday, and Friday night. The food menu is still in the works, but Peter says he favors food on a stick, so imagine the possiblities -- skewers, dippers, and quite likely, a gourmet corn dog -- all to help soak up the wine and martinis. They have yet to set an official grand opening date, but I'll be on the lookout for this one.
