It’s the dawn of a new day at the Wrigley Mansion.
Perched at the crest of a prominent hill rising 100-feet above Phoenix, located in the heart of the Biltmore neighborhood, the Wrigley Mansion commands spectacular 360-degree views of the mountains and the city below. Originally constructed in 1932 by American chewing gum legend William Wrigley Jr., the Wrigley Mansion was thoughtfully designed as a romantic 50th anniversary gift to his beloved wife Ada, tailored with architecture inspired by Spanish, California Monterey and Mediterranean styles.
The Wrigley family sold the property in 1973, and in 1992, as the city of Phoenix was nearing demolition of the beloved mansion to accommodate proposed residential development nearby, heir to the Hormel Foods fortune, the late Geordie Hormel, and his wife Jamie, fell in love with the property and made its revitalization a labor of their love. Today the Wrigley is a Phoenix “Point of Pride”, a top destination for weddings and special events, as well as a popular restaurant and lounge for happy hour, lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch. Note: Happy Hour, lunch and dinner resume August 1, 2014 and Sunday brunch starts up for the season again on September 21, 2014.
Guests of Geordie’s restaurant will discover updated, simple-yet-delicious menus (click here to check out the new dinner menu) and imaginative new cocktail offerings, while happy hour visitors will be encouraged to roam carefree, beverages in hand, and explore all of the hidden corners and nooks the property has to offer. Guests can also bookmark the end of a long week with libations and live music in the lounge area as the city shimmers beneath you, with only the night’s sky – and the night ahead – in front of you.
And that’s just scratching the surface.
Look for a more breezy, redesigned logo and refreshed website before the rebranding is fully complete, in addition to an exciting lineup of new live entertainment, special events and a variety of subtle aesthetic upgrades, from light signage to interior and exterior touch-ups.
Vibrant and full of history, the Wrigley has consistently ranked among the top wedding and special event venues thanks to its stunning city views, romantic architecture and its beautiful story. But even the most revered venues can sometimes use a reboot, and such is the case for the Wrigley, which sets to balance its already built-in reputation as a haven for special events by strongly highlighting its inherent “everyday extraordinary” appeals.
And if the Wrigley’s already buzzing grounds and packed patio are any indication, the venue’s recent rebranding efforts are resonating with loyal Wrigley fans and newcomers alike. From its revamped property and spirit, to its re-imagined, chef-driven menu, The Wrigley merges early 1900s style with modern-day flair, resulting in an unparalleled experience for everyone, from the history buff to the busy professional, from locals to visitors alike.
Geordie’s at the Wrigley offers Happy Hour Tuesday through Saturday from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. Lunch is served Tuesday through Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Dinner is available Tuesday through Saturday from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. Geordie's reopens for meals on August 1, 2014. Starting on September 21, 2014, you can head to Geordie’s for Sunday Brunch from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. You can enjoy live music on Thursday and Friday evenings, as well as during Sunday Brunch.
