North Scottsdale's newest hotspot, Chauncey Social (17767 N. Scottsdale Rd., Suite 100; 480-565-6488) is set to shake up the Valley's dining and late night scenes when it opens on Thursday, December 12 at 8pm inside a stylish, all new indoor/outdoor restaurant and nightlife space. A portion of the opening night's proceeds will benefit the Special Olympics.
Led by the landmark Evening Entertainment Group (EEG) and located in the heart of North Scottsdale's fast-growing entertainment district on Scottsdale Road just south of the Loop 101 freeway, Chauncey Social pairs chef-crafted American fare with a welcoming hip vibe, a wraparound outdoor patio and sporting & special events showing on the area's largest LED wall (10' x 50'). Chauncey Social offers an extensive Bill of Fare and has been designed by Executive Chef Joe Absolor, founding chef of Stock & Stable in Phoenix who recently competed at the 2019 World Cooking Championship after winning the Devour Culinary Classic's Golden Ticket award. The menu will feature an all-natural, "Never Ever" protein program across the board; meaning that no hormones, anti-biotics, or medications of any sort have ever been administered. Chauncey's kitchen will be serving guests daily for social hour & dinner while remaining open for late night DJ entertainment. Chauncey Social will be expanding to lunch and weekend brunch in the new year.
Housed inside a contemporary, entertainment center on the SE corner of Scottsdale Road and Chauncey Lane, Chauncey Social is the latest brainchild from EEG owners Diane and Les Corieri. "We've had our eye on North Scottsdale for several years," Diane Corieri says, "because it's such a fast-growing community home to both businesses and hotels as well as it being a highly desirable place for residents to settle in. When we found this ideal location on a prominent corner just south of the 101 freeway, and a chance to build something from the ground up we were inspired to create a welcoming neighborhood hangout; perfect for casual get-togethers and late night socializing."
Seating over 130 guests across the spacious interior, including over 30 seats for bar-goer's, Chauncey Social also boasts a 50-person wraparound outdoor dining space overlooking Scottsdale Road. Colorful, retro-modern décor overflows with natural woods, iron and eye-grabbing burnt orange and gray accents. Chauncey Social welcomes the neighborhood with a unique collection of eclectic furnishings, including tabletop seating and cozy couches. Guests can sip on hand-crafted cocktails, a beer selection encompassing all styles, and a well-rounded wine list suitable for any palate, while noshing on elevated modern American cuisine with influences from all over the globe, and watching special events on 30 television screens.
Originally founded in Scottsdale more than 20 years ago, Evening Entertainment Group now operates top dining & drinking destinations across Arizona, Illinois and Texas, including Stock & Stable, Honor Amongst Thieves, Sandbar Mexican Grill, Bevvy, RnR, Bottled Blonde Pizzeria + Beer Garden, The Backyard, Casa Amigos Tacos + Tequila, Hi Fi Kitchen + Cocktails, and Skylanes.
Chauncey Social will be open daily for dinner service at 4pm with lunch and weekend brunch to soon follow in January. Social Hour will be offered daily from 4pm-6pm. For additional information call 480-565-6488, or visit www.chaunceysocial.com.
