701 is not a place I’d think to cover for BYT, but when I got invited to a tasting of their new bar menu I figured I’d stop by. Frankly, I’m glad I did. The recently renovated restaurant is gorgeous, modern and perfect for a night out all dressed up, or a few drinks after work.
Their happy hour runs from 4-7pm Monday to Friday, and late night from 10pm until close on Thursday to Saturday, with a live jazz band. During that time, the cocktails run $7 each. You must have the hibiscus bellini and Limocello margarita, the drinks are gorgeous and totally delicious.
Want to eat? You can, and pretty inexpensively too. A burger and fries at the bar will run $12 and an order of fried chicken runs $15.
Want a whole meal? Grab the pre-theater deal and have three courses for #29.95. Or try two courses with two wine pairings for $35. Have an appetizer and entree, or an entree an dessert. $70 for a date for two, you really can’t beat that when you look at quality of food and how gorgeous the space is.
701 is located at 7th and Pennsylvania Ave. Enjoy!
