A Tropical Rooftop Paradise Brings Vibrant Drinks To Knox-Henderson

A super trendy rooftop bar that hails from Austin will bring its sleek skyline views to Knox-Henderson next month.

77 Degrees is set to debut its four-tiered rooftop layout at 2107 N Henderson Avenue in a 13,000-square-foot space. According to a press release, 77 Degrees is designed “to evoke rum-soaked evenings in the Caribbean or tequila-fueled nights at a coastal resort in Mexico.” To that end, designers have dreamt up resort-inspired furnishings like cabanas and swings that are done up in a neutral color palette with white accents and electric pops of color via the lighting.

Drinks will obviously be in keeping with the tropical theme. Offerings include Norman’s Cay with several types of flavored rum, coconut water, and lime; Loca Chica served in Topo Chico bottles with Patron Silver, pineapple, and lime; and Chingon! with Illegal Joven Mezcal tequila, Cazadores Reposado tequila, lime, agave, jalapeno, and ginger — all cocktails are $12. For food, 77 Degrees offers a tapas-style menu of tacos, pineapple bowls, and an assortment of dips and light bites like pulled pork tacos, guacamole, and Gulf Coast ceviche.

Later this year, 77 Degrees’ sibling concept will move into Knox-Henderson also — expect Jack & Ginger’s Irish pub to take up residence below 77 Degrees. 77 Degrees officially opens in August, hours of operation will be Monday through Friday 4 p.m. to 2 a.m., Saturday and Sunday 3 p.m. to 2 a.m.
