Roxy's Rocks on the Roof
If you want to get high at Roxy's, come Saturday, Nov. 28, you actually can. Legally, even. That's when the Clematis Street complex that includes Roxy's Pub, 10@2 Saloon and Rome Nightclub is throwing a street-wide beerfest to celebrate the debut of its rooftop bar and restaurant, Roxy's on the Roof.
The 7,500-square-foot space will feel like de islands, mon, complete with palm trees, waterfalls, bamboo, a gazebo, twin bars and 1,500-square-food teak dance floor. There will be live entertainment some nights too, as well as an extensive roster of mojitos and martinis to go along with lunch, brunch and dinner service, which, btw, won't begin immediately but is slated to kick off some time in December.
Doing the cheffing is the fucking talented Mark Lieberman, the guy
who actually cooked the food that made flash-in-the-frying-pan Forte de
Asprinio just down the street one of the most exciting restaurants in
PB County. Lieberman's dinner menu includes maple smoked pork chops
with pepper jack potato cake and caramelized apples and onions, Wagyu
ribeye with baby bok choy, garlic whipped potatoes and cilantro pesto,
and sea bass with jumbo lump crab, asparagus, spiced mango chutney and
lemon butter. Weekday buffet lunches will mostly feature sammies and
salads, while the weekend brunch will be more upscale.
As for the beer bash, a definite time hasn't been set yet (check here
for details), but $20 will get you a commemorative glass and the chance
to sample several dozen beers while Ghost of Gloria, Almost Joon,
Ladies and Gentlemen, and 4th Dimension crank out the tunes and, if
you'll pardon the expression, raise the roof.
