The Living Room Wine Cafe & Lounge announces plans for two new locations this year. The locally owned group is set to bring their innovative wine concept to Ahwatukee and to Gainey Ranch. The Living Room in Ahwatukee Foothills Towne Center – next to the AMC 24 – is scheduled to open the end of May. The Living Room in the Shops at Gainey Village will follow and open mid-October.
The Living Room footprint in Ahwatukee has 2453 SF inside and an additional 1200 SF, L-shaped patio, with custom built in booth seating. The space will include their signature open-air loft design style, Alaskan blond brick and yam colored walls. The concept’s first open-air bistro kitchen will allow guests and chefs to interact. Both the interior and exterior will have comfortable soft seating areas to conduct business, get cozy or grab a bite after a movie.
The Living Room’s draw in Chandler, Scottsdale and Tucson is without question due to their hospitality and staying true to their mantra of love, laugh, lounge. It’s a lounge with delicious, chef inspired, sharable food. On opening in Ahwatukee, Tom Kaufman said, “Based on the number of customers that often traveled seven miles to our Chandler location, it was an easy decision to bring our modern day neighborhood hangout to their doorstep.”
The menu will have an array of salads, seafood starters, bruschetta, flatbreads, burgers, desserts, coffees and a full bar. The Fix, Saturday and Sunday brunch will offer both healthy and hardy options. A vast selection of wines by the glass will be offered starting at $5, until 6 daily. Tom’s handpicked list of wines by the bottle will be stored in a highly visible cutting edge wine cellar. A DJ will be featured on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights; live entertainment on Sundays.
The Living Room in Ahwatukee is located at 4905 E. Ray Rd., Phoenix.
