Two new bars are headed to Midtown this fall: 77 Degrees and Jack & Ginger’s Irish Pub. Both bars from Union Venture Group are slated to open in September on the main block of Brazos Street. 77 Degrees sounds like it’s going to be a tropical escape: it’s a 14,000-square-foot rooftop with cabana-style seating, cocktails, and Caribbean-inspired small plates. Meanwhile, the 7,000-square-foot Jack & Ginger’s Irish Pub will offer over 80 beers on tap, Irish and American comfort foods, and a large covered patio.

“It was the right place at the right time,” said Jeff Van Delden, co-owner of Union Venture Group, said in a press release. “Houston delivered on walkability and we’re proud to offer two of the four new spaces in Midtown’s resurgence. We’re eager for people to come back to an areathey’ve alwaysknown to rediscover a whole new scene.”
