A ‘70s and ‘80s-inspired cocktail lounge from the team behind Colony Square’s new food hall is about to debut in Midtown.

JoJo’s Beloved will open July 23, access through a hidden door in the back of the recently-opened Politan Row food hall.

The brainchild of Politan Row beverage director Sophie Burton, JoJo’s is the latest addition to the portfolio of Politan Group, the company behind Politan Row and several other food halls across the country.

The beverage program will heavily lean on the bar’s nostalgic vibes. Cocktail offerings will include the Bluetsy Collins with Weber Blue Agave Tequila, blue cordial, cocktail foam drops and Topo Chico; and the Sagittarius Sour, a play on a Midori Sour with Singani 63, Midori, Bianco Bitter, lemon juice, simple syrup and Fee Foam.

On the wine side, look for “time capsule” options include chablis and merlot, as well as a selection of bubbles.

The 70-seat space, designed by New Orleans-based firm Bell Butler, features cathedral-height ceilings, vintage-inspired burgundy booths and a 7-inch thick pink marble bar with gold foiling in between each layer of stone. JoJo’s soundtrack of ’70s and ’80s music will be curated each night by the maitre’d from vinyl collection chosen by Burton.

The cocktail bar joins Politan Row, which debuted in late May inside revamped mixed-use development Colony Square. Vendors inside the food hall include Belli Pizzeria, Locale Cafe and Federal Burger.
