From what little information I can find online, Roddy’s was open as early as the World War II era and as late as the early 1990’s. Its location — just up the corner from what is now the Boom Boom Room — is now the Zinc Details Design Store which bills itself as "curated shopping for modern living." Whatever in the heck that pretentious-sounding hogwash is supposed to mean, I think almost every person reading this would still rather have the bar.
