Sixty Vines to Add a Unique OpenAire Retractable Roof Greenhouse to The Crescent Location

Owners of Sixty Vines new uptown location in Dallas will have a one-of-a-kind 1,400 sq. ft. retractable roof greenhouse from OpenAire

Oakville, Ontario, CANADA

TORONTO, May 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The prestigious Crescent complex in Uptown Dallas is about to get a new year-round patio enclosure for wine lovers to enjoy any time of the year. Sixty Vines, is a wine-centric restaurant established in Plano, Texas, and has now opened a new location in the heart of Uptown Dallas. Sixty Vines Uptown is a 9,430 square foot restaurant with 1,150 patio and a unique 1,400 square-foot outdoor greenhouse seating area, featuring a retractable roof designed and built by OpenAire. This dynamic enclosure will be the perfect outdoor-style place for groups, parties or wine happy hours, no matter what the weather.

OpenAire’s double-sloped enclosure is now under construction and will measure 62 ft. by 23 ft., providing ample seating and party space. The aluminum-framed, glass-panelled roof features 3 bays of motorized, operable roof panels on either side of the slope that will open and close at the touch of a button. The 8-foot-high side walls will also feature five pairs of swing doors, each approximately 3 feet wide by 8 feet high, which together with the roof panels will create a truly outdoor atmosphere full of fresh air. Imagine enjoying a great meal with a fantastic glass of wine under a vibrant greenhouse skylight filled with fresh air and surrounded by a beautiful garden any time of year.

Sixty Vines quickly became a favorite for its innovative approach to serving wine on tap with a menu featuring wine country cuisine. The open kitchen delights every sense with a way of cooking that celebrates seasonal produce, infused olive oils, sustainable seafood, locally raised beef and poultry, artisanal pizzas, charcuterie and rusting breads – all served with a perfectly paired glass of wine. From the ability to serve each glass at the perfect temperature to the promise that the last glass will taste just as fresh as the first, wine on tap is redefining how wine is served. 

Just like Sixty Vines creates the perfect pouring conditions for their wines with the temperature-controlled tap system, OpenAire’s exclusive retractable enclosure system will create the ideal outdoor lighting and temperatures for guests to enjoy their favorite wines at any time of year. The operable panels will provide a sunlit, outdoor space on fair days, and also allow the greenhouse to keep operating in rainy or cold weather. In effect, Sixty Vines Uptown will be able to creating unique year-round dining from OpenAire’s custom design, just like hundreds of other restaurants worldwide have found since OpenAire’s first project. OpenAire is proud to bring these advantages to Sixty Vines and looks forward to the amazing experiences that the bar will bring to the Crescent’s vibrant neighbourhood in Dallas.
