Help celebrate Hump Day with some drinks and food in this fun Costa Mesa tavern. I've heard this is a great spot for happy hour. Let's see if the buzz is true! Here's a "little" about Wild Goose Tavern.

The tavern is set back from the street attached to Master Touch Cleaners and across the street from H & R Block. Parking is in the back.

Wild Goose serves 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.

In addition to classically-crafted cocktails made using simple, yet high-quality ingredients, guests will find a select range of draught and bottled beer, as well as shelves stocked with single barrel whiskeys and small-batch spirits.

Equally simple in concept, but rich in quality with locally-sourced fresh ingredients, the menu is comprised of artisanal burgers, exotic, locally-made sausage, and seasonal salads, among other like-fare.

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. A blend of framed hunting prints and paintings, retro beer signs, repurposed lighting fixtures fashioned from old chicken feeders, and a large vintage American flag further punctuate the authentic rustic vibe. With plenty of natural elements throughout the space, it will be hard not to feel enveloped by its warm ambiance.

At the heart of the room stands a unique, curved bar topped with classic hammered copper, while the hand-built back bar is completely clad in raw, reclaimed wood picked from an old barn in Tennessee. Tables, chairs and barstools are equally unique, each hand-made from raw materials. A small, yet cozy outdoor patio is decked with a wrap-around banquette, providing yet another space for guests to relax and enjoy.

More than just another local watering hole, Wild Goose aspires to be a place where good friends and memories are made, a place to simply relax and unwind. Yes, a place you just may call your home away from home, and we hope you do. Welcome to the Goose!

Happy hour goes from 2:00-6:00. We'll be meeting at 5:00, but feel free to come early to enjoy the great happy hour specials.
