A glitzy new nightclub will open later this month, bringing bougie vibes and classic cocktails to a historic building in Downtown Dallas.

Rokwood will make its debut at 600 Jackson Street, in a 100-year-old two-story building known as the Legal Arts Center. The building has been completely renovated into what Rokwood’s promoters call an “Instagrammer’s paradise,” complete with state of the art light and sound systems, vintage decor, and a rooftop terrace that will open next year.

The bar, according to its website “exudes immense sex appeal,” with several unique, Instagrammable spaces throughout. Details include gilded mirrors and chandeliers, leather chesterfield sofas, a living plant wall, plenty on neon lighting, and a number of cordoned-off areas for bottle service and private events. There’s also a vintage, turquoise phone booth, and a clawfoot bathtub “ that’s perfect for unforgettable photo ops,” according to a press release.

Drinks-wise, expect classic like mules, spritzes, old fashioneds and highballs. Rokwood also features some custom creations, like the Peanut Butter Falcon, made with whiskey, whole milk, and nutmeg, and the Nightowl, made with vodka and cold brew. The venue will also play host to a rotation of resident DJs, with music nightly from Thursday through Saturday. Rokwood will not charge a cover.

Rockwood has not set an exact opening date yet, but when it does, the bar’s will operate Thursday through Saturday from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.
