Boiler Nine Bar + Grill is set to make its Austin debut in the Seaholm Power Plant on Tuesday, July 5. The multi-story restaurant from the La Corsha Hospitality Group will contain three different dining and drinking experiences.
Each of those sections offer its own menu and drinks. The centerpiece is the main dining area, referred to as Boiler Nine Bar + Grill, on the ground floor. All the way up top is the casual rooftop patio, called Deck Nine Observatory Bar, complete with a viewfinder to really take advantage of the outlooks. Down in the basement will be the serious cocktail lounge, the Boiler Room. Wine and beer will stay the same throughout the building.
Keeping with the name and location within the power plant, fire is the focus of the menu. The wood-fired grill will heat up meaty entrees like brisket, fish, and chicken, using various woods like oak, in the open kitchen. Brunch will be served on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Drinks-wise, the cocktails in the main sector complement the blazing food, upstairs will feature frozen libations, and the the subterranean dive highlights beverages from the 1960s and 1970s.
The team from La Corsha Hospitality, Boiler’s parent company, include executive chef Jason Stude (formerly of Second Bar + Kitchen), booze brain Jason Stevens, and wine mastermind Paula Rester.
Boiler Nine will open in stages: first, dinner in the main restaurant begins on July 5, with lunch following on Thursday, July 7. The Boiler Room lounge debuts on Saturday, July 9, and Deck Nine on Tuesday, July 12. Once fully clear, restaurant hours will be from 11 a.m. to midnight daily, Deck Nine from 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. every day, and Boiler Room from 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. Monday through Saturday.
Boiler Nine’s courtyard at 800 West Cesar Chavez shares space with Trader Joe’s and True Food Kitchen.
