Roosevelt Grille in Ketchum closes

Bar, restaurant and music venue the Roosevelt Grille, 280 North Main St., in Ketchum, has closed. has details.

Update: The news there resulted in a barrage of reader comments and an unusually lengthy correction regarding why the place had closed. (That’s still not entirely clear.)

Whatever the case, the place is history.

I've spent more time seeing live music at Whiskey Jacques than hanging at the Roosevelt over the years, but it still feels crazy to have the Roosevelt shuttered. I enjoyed a good meal at the Roosevelt this winter when I was in town to see Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit perform ... at Whiskey Jacques.

Whiskey Jacques is a great place for live music

This was about the only decent eatery open

when we went through Ketchum a couple of Sundays ago.

Nice place, great food.

Sorry to see it go :(

Sorry to see it close.


Being a 'working stiff',

Grumpy's was my 'place de joie'.
