A popular place for country music and country line dancing is closing its doors.
The Roost Country Showcase, located next to the Days Inn on West Henrietta Road in Henrietta, will close its door on Saturday.
The owner of the restaurant and bar, Dave Ives, told the Democrat and Chronicle that The Roost has been struggling financially in recent years and that he wants to spend more time with his family. He also told them he's thinking of opening a smaller place in the future. Ives also said he has potential buyers for the club who are interested in keeping The Roost a country bar and restaurant, but that no deal has been reached yet. Ives told the paper it might be open again by mid-November, but he didn't know anything for sure.
The Roost has been opened since 2003. The country band, Flint Creek, will play the final night on Saturday.
