With much of the classic art deco architecture and original design elements of the iconic 1949 Seaholm Power Plant intact, Boiler Nine Bar + Grill is showing Austin a whole new way to experience downtown. And, with three distinct dining areas covering four floors, the venue provides groups with a unique setting for their next meeting or event.
A spacious industrial-style bar complete with an enormous wall of windows makes up the heart of the main dining room at Boiler Nine Bar + Grill. On the mezzanine level (The Loft), groups up to 40 can overlook the entire restaurant as diners indulge in a menu curated by executive chef Jason Stude, which features wood-grilled and emberroasted dishes.
The open-air Deck Nine Observatory Bar on the fourth floor and rooftop of the historic 11,000-square-foot structure is open to the public, and it offers guests unbeatable views of downtown Austin and Lady Bird Lake. Masterfully prepared cocktails can be ordered by the flask or bottle. With a menu designed to stir up the best feelings of any season, this customizable space is the perfect spot for 70 seated guests or 90 standing guests.
The sunken recesses of this impressive landmark have been dramatically redesigned into The Boiler Room Bar. This “subterranean cocktail laboratory” invites guests to explore new flavors with an extensive list of spirits as well as wine and beer in a chic industrial setting. Although centered around mixology from the 1960s and 1970s, wine and beer are available alongside bites from its late-night kitchen. Three partitioned dens can accommodate up to 25 people, or groups up to 120 people can book the space exclusively.
