Roost Records (also known as Royal Roost Records) was a record label established in 1949, primarily to record jazz, taking its secondary name from the New York club with which it was associated. The saxophonist Stan Getz, early in his career, was the most celebrated musician to record for the label, though recordings by guitarist Johnny Smith are also highly regarded.

It was acquired by Morris Levy in 1958 and incorporated into Roulette Records.
