12 Jun Angels Trumpet Ale House To Open Second Location In Arcadia
Angels Trumpet owners, Sharry & Mat Englehorn are also opening an adjoining craft cocktail lounge named Tall Glass inside a revitalized mid-century modern garage at 44thStreet & Thomas Road
(Phoenix, AZ) – Local restaurateurs, Sharry & Mat Englehorn of Angels Trumpet Ale House in downtown Phoenix are proud to announce an all-new location coming in early August to the heart of Arcadia. Named Angels Trumpet Arcadia, this stylish second location now under construction will share the same building with the couple’s newest passion project, a craft cocktail lounge named Tall Glass. Housed inside a stylishly restored, revitalized mid-century modern space that was formerly a Sears Auto Center, Angels Trumpet Arcadia/Tall Glass is located at 2339 N 44thStreet(inside the the Arcadia Crossing shopping center on the SE corner of 44thStreet and Thomas Road in Phoenix.) Plus, the couple also plans to eventually open a small microbrewery onsite, which Mat Englehorn describes as, “an intimate brewers playground, where we’ll make the sort of beers that we like to drink.”
“We live right around the corner, so we’ve had our eye on this building for years,” says Sharry Englehorn. “We know from personal experience that this stretch of south Arcadia is missing a fun and welcoming all-day hangout, where you can pop in for a tasty lunch or sip drinks on the patio and watch the sun set on Camelback Mountain.”
But first, the couple had to strip away decades of garage grime and patchwork redesigns to reveal the stylish mid-century foundations of this low-slung 10,000 sq.-ft. space, including restoring a vibrant orange mosaic tile muralnear the entrance that had been covered in countless layers of paint. “Originally built as a Ward’s Auto Center in the late 1950s, this is the last remaining buildingof the former Thomas Mall,” Mat Englehorn says. “So we wanted to honor that history and preserve the wonderful architectural bones, as well as preserve elements of the tire shop by keeping the industrial look, and the beat up floor—just adding a lot of polish.”
Scheduled to open in early August, Angels Trumpet Arcadia will feature the same irresistible food menu and casual indoor-outdoor layout as the original. Not to mention Angels Trumpet’s signature (and ever-changing) selection of local and national craft beers available on tap, with today’s offerings written on an oversized slate chalkboard. Seating approximately 240 people, including a fully private 46-person dining room with TV & audio capabilities, the spacious, soaring main dining room boasts garage-style rollup window walls, custom mural artwork lining the walls and two spacious (and shaded) outdoor dining patios.
Carved into the west side of the building, Tall Glass will be a separate craft cocktail lounge with its own entrance and extensive menu of craft cocktails, including spirits from craft beer distilleries such as Rouge Spirits and Cutwater Spirits (founded by San Diego’s Ballast Point brewery). Here, guests will be able to belly up to the 40-seat island-style bar, relax in a cozy booth, or unwind on an outdoor patio featuring a mature palo verde shade tree, all hidden behind a stylish, perforated steel fence. Serving a compact menu of gourmet bar bites, Tall Glass guests will also be able to order from the entire Angels Trumpet food menu.
Designed by Mat and Sharry Englehorn, with assistance from Lance Baker of Synectic Design (The Van Buren) and constructed by Alexander Building Company (who also worked on the original Angel’s Trumpet in downtown Phoenix), Angels Trumpet Arcadia will be open daily from 11 am to midnight, while Tall Glass will be open daily from the late afternoon to midnight.
