Rose & Crown Pub

(Downtown, Omaha, NE)

Scooter’s 647th bar, first visited in 2009.

Rose & Crown Pub, Omaha

This place is rated as one of Omaha’s top dives. The bar area itself is nice, and it has a beautiful deck in the back. We had also read a review that told us we needed to check out the basement bathrooms that would remind one of Buffalo Bill’s basement in “”Silence of the Lambs”", but since neither of us had to go, we both forgot about doing so.

Update: On a later visit I did use the restroom. You go down a treacherous staircase with a very low ceiling into the very low ceilinged basement. At the bottom there are three small unmarked doors. Women’s has a nude woman on the door, Men’s has a Nebraska logo. I don’t know what’s behind the third door.

Many of my companions on the second trip thought this was a gay bar but I didn’t see it. Gay-friendly maybe but it wasn’t flaunted.
