Owner Ryan Rosenstiel discusses the history of Rosie’s, starting with the South location.
“We’ve been in business for eight years,” Rosenstiel said. “In 2013 we started off as just a sports bar and grill with a focus on the neighborhood. We quickly grew and doubled the sales in the first year.”
Sales kept doubling and doubling, and when Single Barrel moved into the Graduate, Rosenstiel saw an opportunity and leapt.
“With the pandemic, we only lost about 20% so we took advantage of what we called the ‘COVID Specials,’ those are when a business needed to get out, and we took a chance down here,” Rosenstiel said.
Born and raised in Cozad, Nebraska, proud Midwest Native Rosenstiel wanted a place for relatives to visit.
“All my friends and families live out west, and when they’re in town they always wanted to come to our place, but it wasn’t downtown so when they come to a game or a big concert, their hotels are downtown.” Rosenstiel said. “They don’t want to be driving back and forth, so this is just a thing to say, well I’m down here, you now have no excuses.”
With a bigger space than the South location, Rosie's can host live music with more live music. The venue hosts usually country and blues music, but is still able to host more local and regional bands.
“We have deals almost every day, I didn’t think I would be doing gimmicky things that I can’t even keep up with it anymore, just to get people into the doors, but college students love it,” Rosenstiel said. “Tuesdays are open mic nights, so people, anyone has the opportunity to get up there and perform.”
