Located directly below Crust Chandler, the Ostrich is a neighborhood craft cocktail lounge inspired by the rich history dating back to the city’s founding days of 1912. After nearly a year of renovations and excavations, the Ostrich is ready to enjoy! This space was once a watering hole for the nation’s traveling and sometimes nefarious elite and has been remodeled and rescued. This re-imagined drinking destination is housed in the forgotten basement tunnels running to the Crowne Plaza San Marcos golf course clubhouse and the old railroad station. This same basement was also an ostrich feather storage facility after World War I. Dr. AJ Chandler had high hoping that the ostrich feather would take off as a fashion accessory, primarily in the flapper dress industry. Sadly, those hopes fell short. Classic drinks, historical furniture and timeless service aim to establish the east valley as a craft cocktail destination. Handcrafted ice, cocktails, food and hospitality is the name of the game at The Ostrich. Meant to inspire our guests to understand and appreciate the past and apply its wisdom to everyday situations while paying homage to Dr. AJ Chandler, we decided to name our basement lounge, the Ostrich. Without Dr. Chandler’s crazy idea to build a resort, let alone a basement in Arizona, we wouldn’t be able to offer delicious cocktails in this historic setting. Cocktails are serious business, so the Ostrich is home to a star studded staff, led by nationally celebrated mixologist, Brandon Casey and supported by Maxton Kennedy, an extremely talented second in command and a new valley transplant all the way from New Orleans. The Ostrich is open Wednesday-Saturday at 6 p.m. at 10 N San Marcos Place, Chandler, AZ 85225. There are no signs on the door, you’ll just have to find your way and meet us in the basement.

It's Wednesday, you know what that means; you need a nice, cold, refreshing cocktail. Why? Because you've made it through half the week. Because the weekend is so close. See you downstairs at 8
