Incredible rude bartender!
Sep 2019
***PLEASE READ THIS***

Arrived with an old friend on Monday, 9th September, sat at the bar and had two Becks. We weren't drunk, loud or inappropriate.

We wanted to order another drink, however, the bartender (who was very obviously drugged, drunk, or both) didn't want to sell us drinks, even though we had money. The reason: we didn't tip him earlier. How do I know? Because he literally said: ”No tips, no drinks” I was gobsmacked! Even the two guys next to us were shocked and asked him how he can even say such a thing.

I didn't tip him because his service was abysmal.

All night he was extremely arrogant towards us and other customers. You could see on other people’s faces that they felt intimidated by his behaviour.

Roses is known in Berlin as a place of tolerance, and I hope that management will do something about this. At the end of the day, we were paying costumers! Deeply disappointed.

Just uncool!
Jul 2019 • Friends
It’s the first time I ever criticize anything on the internet but the bartender’s behavior deserves for people to know. We spent at least 2 hours in this small bar with a group of friends partying and dancing in a really good mood but when it was closing time, I couldn’t find my bag (and there was no reason for it to have moved so I panicked and asked the bartender if he could check if someone left it where they keep the lost object. he behaved annoyed and didn’t even take 2 seconds to look. My friends and I had a look at every corner of the tiny bar.. we nicely insisted once more for him to check and he basically kicked us out telling us if anything the bar didn’t answer phone calls or Facebook and that the only possibility was to come back at 10pm the day after. (Not to mention that I lived super far from there and was plan’ing On living the day after) all passeport, debit card were in there.. so it would have been really tricky to even leave the country without it.. I obviously canceled my debit card.. but the worst crazy part of it when we came back the day after.. he actually had it behind the bar in the first place.... that’s soooo unprofessional and rude I don’t think I’ll ever go back. Where i’m from bartenders are ALSO payed to care about customers safety a little

l resisted 10 minutes. The bartender was a RUDE UNEDUCATED PERSON. I will never go back There again and I recommend you to do the same..
I have never been treated so badly and with superiority in this way before now ...
I am very happy I left my table and not stayed there. I have done this job in my life and I never, ever treated a customer in this way... Cause kindness and respect is the rule Nr. 1 when you work with people, in life generally. This guys needs to study again the basic rules.

Good music, barman is a jerk
Apr 2019 • Friends
Mixed crowd with lots of flashing lights. Barmen was a jerk and insulting people for not tipping enough. Why would anyone want to tip someone that goes out of their way not to serve you, overcharges you, then insults you?

barman was rude, not respectful and went out of his way to be nasty
Feb 2019 • Friends
its really not good enough anymore that supposedly 'queer' spaces in Berlin pertain to the attitude that people paying for drinks get openly insulted and bullied at the bar; especially after giving the bar man good tips. Literally grabbed 50 euro from my hands. Thats like, literally grabbing money from my hand before I ordered, and THEN went out of his way to openly insult me. This guy has nothing loose by just taking a drink order, literally nothing to loose. His attitude was nothing short of shocking, especially considering that 'respect' is one of the rules of the bar. Usually, unfriendly staff don't bother me, but this person should not work in a bar that makes a ton of money from Tourism but simultaneously despises tourism. Shame, Roses was a fun bar, now, well, its just a nasty shadow of its queer aspirations. Avoid. Avoid. Avoid. You literally have other options.

Sunday Night blast!
Dec 2018 • Couples
My wife and I visited Roses on our first night in Berlin. We had an absolutely amazing night! Our plan was just to stop in for a beer or two and ended up staying much longer because we were having so much fun. It was a Sunday night too, but the place was packed! We got there a little early and had a great seat at the bar. I see some reviews that say the bartender was rude to women and tourists - we are both of those things and didn't have any trouble. We are gay and we were respectful and had no issues. It was a mixed crowd - men and women - and everyone seemed to have a good time. There was a DJ playing great music!
It is a small bar (really cool space) and smoking is allowed, so it can get smoky in there.
As long as you aren't in the place being disrespectful, there is no reason to be nervous to stop in!

Discriminatory

The bartender was very discriminatory against women, ignoring me at the bar when trying to order a drink and eventually putting ice cubes down my shirt as a "joke". Not very funny though.
