According to the city of Goodyear‘s website, a new concept called Bacchus Wine Bar is opening by late spring or early summer of 2024, which was named after the Greek god of wine.
Located at McDowell Road and west of 150th Drive between The Stillery and Copper and Sage, the bar is owned by Goodyear residents Jack and Kathleen Vozar.
The Vozar’s told What Now Phoenix, “Bacchus is something we have wanted to do for some time now. We are going for a relaxing vibe that will cater to both the experienced wine drinker as well as those that are newcomers to the amazing culture we refer to as “wine society”. Our price point will reflect that range so everyone will feel comfortable in choosing what they like as well as try a great variety of wines that we will have to offer. We also like to think of the concept as the Hard Rock meets the Smithsonian as we will have an eclectic assortment of memorabilia, artifacts, and historical items incorporated into the design from all types of genres and historical periods creating great conversation pieces amongst the patrons. We look forward to serving the valley come spring of 2024.”
In Goodyear’s writeup on the opening, Jack Vozar was also quoted sharing the following: “We’ve heard so many people in the West Valley say that we need this kind of concept in this part of town. My wife and I fell in love with wine during our travels and started making it 20 years ago. We felt it was time to take our love for wine to the next level with a unique concept.”
They also revealed that customers will have “24 different varietals through self-serve wine machines in two, six or nine ounce pours” to choose from. Beyond wines, there will also be small plates offered.
A quote from Goodyear Economic Development Director Wendy Bridges was also included in the article: “Goodyear residents have been asking for more high-end restaurant and dining experiences, and Bacchus Wine Bar fulfills that request. We are delighted to welcome Bacchus Wine Bar to Goodyear, and our team continues to work on attracting even more of these types of elevated establishments to Goodyear.”
