Since December 2009, The Living Room Wine Cafe and Lounge has been bringing wine and simple fare to East Valley diners and drinkers. Now owner by Tom Kaufman (also of Humble Pie) has plans to bring the concept to north Scottsdale.
If everything goes as planned, the newest location of The Living Room Wine Cafe and Lounge will be at 20751 N Pima Rd., suite #120 in the DC Ranch Marketplace. The space was most recently occupied by Armitage Bistro, a wine lounge that closed its doors earlier this year.
The Living Room at DC Ranch Marketplace is expected to open in mid-September and will offer cozy seating both indoors and outside, as well as a paddle shaped bar with facing stools surrounded by bookshelves.
Drinkers can look forward to 25 wines and sangrias by the glass, a list of wines by the bottle, and 10 beers on draft. The bar will also serve a full line of spirits. On the food side expect a menu of sharable plates, with weekend brunch slated to launch in October.
Last spring Kaufman announced plans to open a second location in the northwest Valley, but the location at 3890 West Happy Valley Road in Glendale never opened.
