As the valley preps for summer, Camp Social, a new themed restaurant/bar concept from Glass Half Full LLC, is set to open its doors in June. The fun, laid-back camping-themed atmosphere offers an elevated woodsy menu, specialty cocktails and interactive games that create an upbeat, interactive experience.
Designed like a rustic log cabin, Camp Social features a retro-fitted camper serving as the hostess stand to greet guests as they walk in, canoes-turned-chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, and two bars, with tire-swing seating at the central bar, and indoor-outdoor seating at the other. The cozy game room features interactive games like shuffleboard, ping pong, large Jenga blocks and Buck Hunter arcade, and comfy seating options for relaxed socialization in front of the stone fireplace.
Camp Social’s concept invites guests to come into a relaxed environment that is reminiscent of camping outdoors. General Manager Anthony Georgoulis, says, “We think people will be pleasantly surprised with the cozy cabin feel, down-to-earth vibe and high-end yet approachable, affordable fare.”
Menu conception is the brainchild of Corporate Chef Dirk Flanigan. Classically trained, Flanigan has been in the restaurant industry all of his life, starting out as a dishwasher at the young age of 13. Flanigan lends his forward-thinking approach to culinary innovation with dishes such as Fried Pickle French Fry Poutine with cheddar curds and elk gravy; Spicy Pork Wings with gochujang, cilantro, chili, crisp onion, and garlic; and wood fire-baked pizzas such as the inspired Big Bend Smoked Trout with Brussels sprouts, garlic, parmesan, chili flake and fried egg; and Adirondack with pepperoni, n’duja, fiore di latte, and ricotta.
Camp Social offers 13 beers, two wines and one spirit on tap, with specialty cocktails — including The Lazy Sunday, tea for two made with Old Camp Peach Pecan Whiskey, freshly brewed black tea, fresh squeezed lemon and Peach Real, served in “the ugliest Thermos we could find.” Of course, no campsite is complete without s’mores — The Best Little S’more House in Phoenix, made with marshmallow vodka, chocolate liqueur, melted chocolate, graham cracker crust and topped with flaming marshmallows, is the cocktail version of this fireside favorite. Open Sunday through Thursday from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. with food served until 1:00 a.m., and happy hour from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
