Roxxy Northwest has closed


Via Facebook:


"Well, due to a slow economy and an average of only 10-12 people per day in the restaurant over the last month- we have decided to close the doors to The Roxxy for good.

Tonight was our last night. Our decision to close was made late today, after going over all the bills and potential growth. The fact is that though we have seen growth and positive comments from our regular guests and new visitors- it just wasn't enough to sustain us.

We tried. 15-20 hours each day....

Thank you all for your support. We appreciated the team effort!

All future venue projects and reunions will also be canceled. We are sorry for the inconvenience this causes, especially to Angel Steel and the upcoming bands.

Maybe we will see you in another project. We are looking for one!!"

Of course it did. Someone needs to put that space out of its misery for good. Next person to use the space (hint, maybe not a restaurant) should hire a consultant. Change the layout (it currently has bad feng shui), change the menu (hint, no pizza), change the concept, and for gosh sakes, change the sign and the name. It's not working kids. Sorry to hear it, and times are tough, but it just wasn't going to work.

The location would seem to be pretty good; it's the space and it's configuration that hasn't worked. I went there, and took friends, for lunch. They didn't like the dark, hard to see feel of it, and vowed to not return.

Here's a crazy idea that would help businesses in that area. Turn all of State street back to two-way traffic and put a cross walk in at 13th. Also extend the sidewalk so the restaurants can have some outdoor seating!

You got it Anon. Drive down Alberta St. in Portland to see what really works for small businesses. Two-way traffic going S L O W, bike lanes and curb parking. Small businesses in Salem have the odds stacked against them due to the poor urban design decisions the City has made in the past. We need to begin to undo some of them.
