Boiler Room Lounge, the bar found in the basement level of downtown restaurant Boiler Nine Bar + Grill, is reopened for business again after a major redesign. The Seaholm restaurant upgraded its industrial vibe with the comparatively more inviting decor, extended hours, and a new drink menu.
The new space by SLIC Design, which also worked on the Second Bar + Kitchen revamp, is meant to be cozier. The design team brought in soft lighting, Persian rugs, and accents like vintage records and Rolling Stone magazines.
The redesigned drink menu from Boiler parent company La Corsha’s director of beverage and bars Jason Stevens is split into two parts, resembling a cassette tape. The drinks increase in booziness. Side A contains classic cocktails like a Tequila Rose (strawberry margarita) while Side B provides a twist on those cocktails like the Night Bloom made with mezcal, sotol, roast pineapple, makrut lime leaf, molé, and a tajin rim. There’s also snacks and flatbreads.
Boiler Room Lounge is open Tuesday to Saturday from 5 p.m. until midnight, with happy hour from 5 to 7 p.m.
