wild-gooseWild Goose Tavern Lands in Costa Mesa

New neighborhood watering hole offers craft cocktails and cuisine.

Nestled within the Westcliff area of Costa Mesa, Wild Goose Tavern aspires to be much more than a local watering hole. The intimate bar provides guests with straightforward, world-class cocktails, seasonal beers and elevated pub grub in a space that’s cozy and casual with vintage décor reminiscent of a hunting lodge saloon. Equally simple in concept and rich in quality with locally-sourced, fresh ingredients, the menu is comprised of craft burgers, exotic, locally-made sausage and seasonal salads. In line with its lodge motif, comfy diamond-tufted booths and banquettes back up to walls trimmed with vintage wood scaffolding planks, an array of taxidermy including a Canadian goose, stag, beaver and tossed in for good measure, a mythical “jackalope,” or two. 436 East 17th Street, Costa Mesa, 949.722.9453. goosebar.com
