The owners of 47 Scott will be bringing Caribbean food and a lot of rum to downtown Tucson this August.
After some construction delays thanks to the age of the building, Saint House, is set to open August 15 at 256 E. Congress, filling the space left behind by Shark's Nightclub.
The owners decided to pause construction after a few delays and open when streetcar construction on Congress Street is finished, Nicole Flowers, co-owner of 47 Scott said.
"It's a Caribbean restaurant based around all the different regions where rum comes from," Flowers said. "So we'll have a lot of rum drinks a lot of different rums."
The food will be based off of the Caribbean, Flowers added, but also Caribbean cuisine influences such as South America, France and the United Kingdom and the surrounding islands.
Having the streets open to traffic in August will help people get into downtown easily which makes for great timing. In May 2010, 47 Scott was one of the first new concepts in downtown Tucson. Flowers said she doesn't see many vacant spots in the area, "which is nice."
"We ... are all in on downtown as far as businesses and any future businesses that we do," Flowers said. "We've seen a lot of growth with everyone else opening since then ... it'll just be nice to have a walkable, urban feeling downtown here in Tucson."
