The Goose is Scottsdale’s New Speakeasy Lounge

Crust Restaurant Group has introduced a new cocktail experience to the Valley with speakeasy The Goose

Upon entering the lounge guests are drawn in with intimate seating, candlelit tables and Art Deco-style decor featuring sleek geometric patterned wallpaper with flashes of gold accents against a classic black-and-white marbled floor. 

The drink menu blends classic cocktails like a Vesper martini, Clover Club and Vieux Carre with modern imitations carefully crafted by The Goose bar team. Slow down and sip on the Down Comforter made with smoked Wagon bourbon, Amaro Lucano Anniversario, pistachio Orgeat and Australian coffee bitters; be bold with the OnlyFeathers, which combes Platinum vodka, fresh passionfruit and lemon juice topped with Prosecco; or stay on theme with the Take a Gander cocktail made of Japanese Whisky, plum sake, pomegranate tea syrup, dry vermouth and clarified milk punch. 

Whiskey flights give guests the option to sample a carefully curated spirits selection or take a risk with a classic pour of something new. Goose Bumps, two shots of premium vodka with two portions of caviar, is another unique offering featured on the menu. 

The food menu, from the Crust Simply Italian Kitchen, flaunts unique shareable plates of tangerine spiced olives, fried calamari, charcuterie board, select pizzas and desserts. 

“As a sister concept to The Ostrich and Blue Heron, you will see many similarities, however, The Goose will stand on its own with many differences like the original decor, elevated wine list, separate food menu and of course some newly creative cocktails,” says Michael Merendino, owner of Crust Restaurant Group. “We will also be offering Goose Bumps which will be an insanely fun way to enjoy caviar and vodka! Come down and say hello.” 

In addition to The Goose, Crust Restaurant Group operates Crust Simply Italian Restaurants, Crust Pizzerias and two other cocktail lounges, The Ostrich and Blue Heron. Plans are also in the works to open another Crust Simply Italian, a dessert shop and an additional cocktail bar in Mesa later this year. 

The Goose is open Sunday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. to midnight. The lounge is located within the Mercado del Lago plaza adjacent to Crust Simply Italian at 8300 Hayden Road in Scottsdale.
