After nearly two years of anticipation, Boiler Nine Bar + Grill has an opening date. The hot restaurant in the redeveloped Seaholm Power Plant will open Tuesday, July 5.
The 10,000-square-foot, four-story space from La Corsha Hospitality Group features three unique concepts: the main dining area; a rooftop lounge, Deck Nine Observatory Bar; and an underground tavern, The Boiler Room.
Executive Chef Jason Stude is grilling and firing up most of the dishes. "The majority of Boiler Nine Bar + Grill's menu items has a strong focus on utilizing different types of wood and the flavors they impart on meats, vegetables, seafood, and more," explained Stude in a release. "In addition to providing a unique and delicious dining experience for our guests, we wanted to give a nod to what the power plant once was."
A cocktail program helmed by expert barman, and CultureMap Tastemaker winner, Jason Stevens is as multifaceted as the space. Expect old-school cocktails in The Boiler Room and a frozen drink lineup from Deck Nine this summer. Acclaimed sommelier Paula Rester has curated an approachable, well-priced wine list.
Boiler Nine opens for dinner July 5, and lunch starts July 7. Hours will be 11 am to midnight daily, with brunch service from 11 am to 4 pm Sundays. The Boiler Room debuts July 9, and Deck Nine will open July 12. Deck Nine's hours are 4 pm to 1 am daily. The Boiler Room will be open 4 pm to 1 am Monday through Saturday.
This is just one anticipated concept from La Corsha. In addition to the renovation of Green Pastures Restaurant and the construction of a new east side hotel, the hospitality company is expanding Second Bar + Kitchen's downtown locale and adding two new locations, one in Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and the other in Archer Hotel in the new Domain Northside development.
