Roffler is some kind of chain? They had one in Las Cruces. That partic Roffler on Swan is also the weirdly Charlie Chaplin-themed HAIR BY TOP BANANA

In Tallin there is a bar called "Depeche Mode Bar" (though I think they've had to shorten it to "DM Bar" nowadays). The only music that plays there, well, I think you can guess this one...
