Preview of 77 Degrees Rooftop Bar & Soft Opening of the Rose Room

77 Degrees Rooftop Bar located above St. Genevieve

Full Disclosure: I attended a media preview of 77 Degrees Rooftop Bar & the Rose Room and received complimentary cocktails & bites at 77 Degrees. All opinions are my own.

77 Degrees Rooftop Bar is an adult oasis on Rock Rose Avenue located above St. Genevieve. Upon walking into the beautiful rooftop bar you and your guests will instantly feel fabulous. The crisp white decor has touches of ice blue, red and wood. There are hanging chairs, welcoming cabanas and other comfortable seating areas to lounge throughout the sprawling patio. The bar is well prepared for the elements with both a fire place for those chilly fall & winter nights and misters for use during Texas\’ sultry summers.

Cabanas at 77 Degrees Rooftop Bar

The refreshing ice cold cocktails I tried had a tropical vibe that is complimented with delicious palette pleasers like savory beef empanadas and fire grilled skewers.

Hookah at 77 Degrees Rooftop Bar

In addition they have elegant hookahs topped with optional fruit like pineapple which enhances the soft flavors and scent of the hookah. Here is a look at some of our favorite cocktails and tapas:

Singapore Sling Cocktail at 77 Degrees Rooftop Bar

The thirst quenching Singapore Sling cocktail is the perfect way to beat the summer heat. This stunning cocktail has Bombay East Gin, Cherry Heering, Benedictine, pineapple juice, lime and soda. 
Cayman Account Cocktail at 77 Degrees Rooftop Bar

The Cayman Account cocktail complete with garnish of a pineapple parrot is as a fun drink that will give you something good to squawk about. The towering drink has Bacardi 8, Meyers Dark Rum, Rhum Barbancourt, fresh squeezed pineapple & orange juice, ginger beer and garnished with pineapple. This cocktail is nicely balanced with sweetness from the juice and a subtle bite from the ginger beer.
Goose Lime Cocktail at 77 Degrees Rooftop Bar

The Goose Lime cocktail is reminiscent of yet different than a mojito. This simple yet wonderful cocktail has Grey Goose Citron, Cointreau and fresh lime.
Pinchos a la Parrilla at 77 Degrees Rooftop Bar
Their enticing Pinchos a la Parrilla (skewered meat) comes with a delightful honey-habanero aioli and are on a bed of comforting sweet-corn plantain mash. Guests get their choice of bacon wrapped grilled shrimp, guava glazed chicken skewers and a hearty spicy soy marinated skirt steak. You cannot go wrong with any of the three but our favorite is the perfectly cooked plump shrimp tucked into crisp bacon.

Beef Empanadas at 77 Degrees 

I am a sucker for empanadas and these crispy golden Beef Empanadas did not disappoint! They are stuffed with ground beef, diced potato, onions, garlic and topped with a brightly flavored sweet mojito sauce and cheese.
Black Bean Hummus at 77 Degrees Rooftop Bar
The Black Bean Hummus drizzled with cilantro lime aioli, topped with cheese and served with crispy plantain chips goes perfectly with their tropical cocktails.
