A new beginning for Alan Roth


It’s a new day — and night — for nightlife veteran Alan Roth who, after selling his Midtown hot spot Ricochet to the Brickell-based Baru Group, is leaving the biz.

“After 20 years in the nightlife business, I’ve decided to hang up my hat,” Roth says. “I might still do some consulting work, but I’m moving on to a new chapter in my life. A million stories I could tell and not a regret in the world.” His only regret? “The hardest part is leaving my partner, Tommy Pooch. We’ve had an incredible 10-year-run together and have become brothers over the years.”

The Baru group will open a bar in the space in about three months. As for Roth’s next chapter? “A vacation,” he laughs, adding, “Leaning towards the real estate world.”
