The Domain’s entertainment district known as the Rock Rose is officially beginning to boom.
Joining already opened Tarka Indian Kitchen and Two Hands Coffee are a pair of bars that open today and tomorrow: the Dogwood starting at 6 p.m. this evening and Jack & Ginger’s Irish Pub tomorrow morning.
The two-level space is the third location of this bar from Carmack Concepts, which also owns other Austin hot spots like the Chuggin’ Monkey and the Dizzy Rooster. It’ll stay true to the spirit of the other Dogwood locations with a focus on Southern hospitality, live music and drinks, according to a press release. Drinks include Dogwood specialty cocktails like the Winter Warmer, the Dogwood Flower and the Violet Rose.
The Dogwood Rock Rose is located at 11420 Rock Rose Ave., Ste. 130, and it’ll be opened 3 p.m. to 2 a.m. Mondays-Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Fridays to Sundays. For more information, visit www.thedogwoodrockrose.com.
Jack & Ginger’s Irish Pub
This Irish-style tavern is the first of four original bar concepts from the Union Venture Group to open in the Rock Rose District. And of the four — including 77 Degrees, a rooftop cocktail bar focused on rum drinks, and the Rose Room, a three-story nightclub — this one is going to be the favorite of beer lovers. Jack & Ginger’s has 82 brews to offer on tap, from IPAs to stouts to bright fruit beers, as well as a pub menu of Irish and American comfort food to pair them with.
Thursday night will be the time to enjoy Texas beers, when four of them will be $4 from 7 p.m. to close, whereas Tuesday night will draw the whiskey fans for $5 Jameson and Bushmills. The bar also has a variety of original cocktails, including a few on tap.
“We know the pub will make the perfect spot to watch soccer, hang out, and start or end your night on Rock Rose,” Jeff Van Delden, the co-owner of Union Venture Group, said in a press release.
Jack & Ginger’s Irish Pub is located at 11500 Rock Rose Ave., and it’ll be opened 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Mondays-Fridays, 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. Saturdays and Sundays, with even earlier hours for watch parties of British Premier League soccer games. For more information, visit jackandgingers.pub.
