Step Inside 77 Degrees, Henderson Avenue’s Stunning New Rooftop Bar

The doors officially open this week

Later this week, Austin export 77 Degrees will debut on Henderson Avenue, bringing a sprawling rooftop drinking destination to the neighborhood.

At 77 Degrees, the most overwhelming feature of the space is the view. Boasting solid vistas of the Dallas skyline, this may be the city’s best new rooftop bar. Notably, the first floor of the building at 2107 Henderson Avenue is not 77 Degrees — that space will eventually become Jack & Ginger’s, the bar’s Irish-tinged sister spot. Only the rooftop is 77 Degrees, which is inspired by an entirely different European vibe.

Once you head up the stairs, 77 Degrees opens up to a sprawling playground of white and blue bathed in summer sun. If the temperatures were just a little bit cooler, it would almost feel like being in a decidedly more beachy locale, maybe Santorini or Tulum.

On the patio, the seating is plentiful and varied. Sit back and relax on cushy white loungers, covered by wooden cabanas. Grab the crew and claim one of the couches, or take over one of the massive rope-suspended swings. Sitting solo? Find one of the deck chairs, or occupy one of the hanging, egg-shaped chairs. Two overhung bars serve the space, slinging mezcal drinks like the Chingon, a mix of mezcal, tequila, lime, agave, jalapeno, and ginger. After drinking up an appetite, snacks like pulled pork tacos and red snapper ceviche await.
