Even amid COVID-19 complications, new ventures are getting off the ground in the Rocket City. A new rooftop bar in downtown Huntsville coming this summer promises a fresh venue for cocktail enthusiasts to frequent.
A Stella-vated Venue
Born from romantic roots, the new rooftop bar in downtown Huntsville coming this summer is the brainchild of a couple from St. Petersburg, Fla. In fact, Angela Panzica and Bill Read have discussed it ever since they met.
When the courtship between the two was still blooming, Panzica and Read would watch classic films together. The couple grew particularly fond of “A Streetcar Named Desire.” A core character in that film would eventually become their bar’s namesake.
Stella’s Elixir Lounge, the new rooftop bar in downtown Huntsville coming this summer, introduces a mid-century Hollywood aura to the bar scene. The bar will feature a retro, refined feel, coupled with modern glamour.
Along with décor, the lounge boasts two outdoor patios, indoor spaces suiting the mood, and seating capacity for approximately 140 people. The bar plans to serve a host of classic cocktails, from martinis to Manhattans—and more. While space limits food options, guests can order delivery from La Esquina Cocina, Purveyor, and Moe’s Original BBQ.
Stella’s Elixir Lounge owes its branding to a central character in “A Streetcar Named Desire,” the wife of Stanley Kowalski, Stella. Fortuitously, the name also meshes with the Rocket City, as Stella is the Latin word for “star.” The rooftop bar will nest on the second-level of 127 Holmes Ave. N.W., sharing space with fellow tenant La Esquina Cocina.
Right now, Stella’s Elixir Lounge aims to open sometime in mid-summer.
With a new rooftop bar in downtown Huntsville coming this summer, that’s one more spot for Huntsville residents to visit. We’re glad another venue calls Huntsville home!
