With the recent tap addition Blue 5 just became a serious player in the craftbeer party in a city that is quickly coming to age. Now with 46 drafts on tap focusing on premier breweries such as founders, stone, Greenflash etc. The beer prices are reasonable, from 450 to 8 per pint, with a dollar off at happy hour (4-7), with other nightly specials.

This place can be a bit overreaching as far as their food prices go for what I would describe as average food, but their draft selection and bar area is what this site is about, and on that account, they are darn good. Also the group venues downstairs and up are excellent for larger gatherings. No parking on site, but a pay lot next door and the the Church avenue garage a block away.

Blue5 is hands down the best spot in Roanoke, probably even the NRV. You won't find a better tap selection, atmosphere, and the service is always top notch. The manager, Chaz, knows his beer and always has a great line up. I love every thing about this place and wish there were more locations in Roanoke like it...until then, you can find me at Blue 5 :)

The best bar we have here in Roanoke, VA! Always a great selection of brews on tap. Usually a pretty busy, and happening place. Always good blues or jazz bands playing at night. Great service and knowledgable staff. Never a cover charge at the door, right downtown, and away from all of the obnoxious redneck bars. ALSO just a block away from Roanokes finest restaurant, The Texas Tavern. Best Chili on earth
