That is the name of a rooftop restaurant and bar in downtown Tuscaloosa. It’s part of the Alamite luxury hotel and he is and his wife Terry are part of the investment group. It is on the corner of Sixth Street and 23rd Avenue.
While there is a also a full bar and restaurant downstairs in the Alamite, Roll Call is a casual yet classy rooftop spot. In other words, it’s hardly Gallettes or Inisfree, two of T-towns most popular bars for college students. Rather it’s more LA style which is no surprise considering it was created by Los Angeles-based Avenue Interior Design.
“Being a rooftop venue, Roll Call is poised to cater to guests looking to enjoy a great view of Tuscaloosa, said Andrea DeRosa, co-founder and principal with Avenue Interior Design. “The focal feature is the center bar that sets the tone and energizes the surrounding dining experience.
“There are a variety of seating types from comfortable, tufted banquettes and casual lounge-style seating to a beautifully paneled private dining room separated from the main dining area by casement style sliding doors.”
Fortunately, you don’t need to make a Saban-type salary to drink there. Cocktails are $11 and $12 and there’s one that Saban probably had a hand in naming, the Devil’s In The Details (Bourbon, Raspberry, Liqueur, Lime, Ginger Beer) for $12.
Food is mostly appetizer type – a chicken kabob ($12), no-meat pizzas ($17 & $18) and sliders for that cost $28 – are among the 10 current offerings.
Jacob Stull, executive chef of Roll Call and Forté: Cuts and Cocktails, said “we’re proud to offer Tuscaloosa residents another unique culinary experience with Roll Call, and to showcase what Alabama has to offer to visitors – it’s a lot more than football.”
Roll Call is open from 5 p.m. until 11 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays and from 5 p.m. until midnight Fridays and Saturdays.
