Summer is fleeting, and this summer has no doubt been a little chaotic. While it is still VERY important to remember Coronavirus is still a thing, it is still possible to go out and support Richmond’s businesses while following the CDC’s safety guidelines.

 We had the pleasure of getting a sneak peak of Kabana Rooftop’s management makeover and what special things they have going on. And if you haven’t heard, they are teaming up with their neighbors at Soul Taco for a delicious summer menu, and we were able to try it all! We felt fancy AF sitting in our summer outfits we thought we’d never be able to wear, sipping on Instagrammable cocktails on a rooftop high atop the city.

Our personal recommendation from Kabana’s bar is their “Flor de los Bolivia” cocktail ($2 off during happy hour) which is a mixture of Hibiscus, Rujero Singani, Rosé, and orange. Our favorite snack from Soul Taco was their pork belly skewer. But what we really appreciated was their commitment to keeping the area a safe space by giving everyone their own booth, requiring masks while inside and on all their staff, and it just being an entirely open-air environment. To prevent overcrowding they require guests to reserve their space online before arriving. So if you want to safely enjoy a happy hour in an open air rooftop 20 floors above the ground with 3 tacos in your hand, Kabana is the way to go!

Check out the scene yourself at Kabana’s happy hour, every Wednesday through Sunday 4pm-11pm. Specials include $2 off beer, wine by the glass, and cocktails. Their drinks are accompanied by a banging menu from soul taco with items such as lobster empanadas and pork belly & watermelon skewers. 

Thanks to Kabana Rooftop for providing food and drinks for the evening.
