52 kg

A new steakhouse by the restaurateurs behind Fayetteville’s Prelude Breakfast Bar is set to open soon in Rogers.

Specializing in Wagyu beef and mezcal, 52 Kilo will open March 31 at 3000 S. Pinnacle Hills Parkway near Lewis & Clark Outfitters.

The bar will mainly offer mezcal and wine. Signature cocktails, including mezcal versions of old-school classics, round out the drink menu.

The space will be small, so reservations are strongly encouraged.

52 Kilo will be open from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday and from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
