Bootsy's ready to serve with new features fit to impress

Bootsy’s produced by Jeff Ruby dazzled late last year when the dramatic space opened in the heart of the Backstage District.  Guests entering the brightly painted building were greeted by a circular bar, plush seating options, loud colors, and an eclectic tapas menu.

The music and dining combination debuted last year was only the beginning.

In addition to the aforementioned features, Bootsy’s now boasts a second-story outdoor patio that extends over the Walnut Street sidewalk beneath.  The outdoor spaces provides an al fresco alternative for the newly established lunch service Bootsy's now offers.

The glass exterior elevator is also fully operational and provides guests a fabulous trip to the second level.

The ground level boasts a Bootsy Collins Rock & Roll Museum with memorabilia Collins has collected during his 30 years in the music business.

Bootsy’s features nightly DJ music in the club area as well as an exhibition-style kitchen in the dining area.

Bootsy’s is open for lunch Monday through Friday from 11am to 2pm.  The lounge is open Monday through Friday 11am to close.  For dinner Bootsy’s is closed on Sundays and open from 5pm to 10pm Monday through Thursday, and 5pm to 11pm Friday and Saturday.
