Josh Widner, owner of Springfield-based hospitality group Good Spirits & Company, and his team are opening a new headquarters in the Rountree neighborhood this fall. You might already be familiar with other Springfield spots owned by Good Spirits & Company, such as the Golden Girl Rum Club, Cherry Picker Package & Fare, Best of Luck Beer Hall and Sweetboy’s Neighborhood Bar.
The company’s new headquarters is set up as a “cocktail test kitchen,” which the team plans to use for internal menu ideation and creation for all of their restaurants, educational tastings featuring growers and makers, private events, and events like cocktail pop-ups. Private event booking starts in September. Keep a lookout for Good Spirits’ first pop-up event in September and a Champagne, Oyster and Caviar tasting later in October.
In addition to their new headquarters, Good Spirits & Company is launching two new businesses. The Loveless Cocktail Club is set to open at the end of this year in Bentonville, Arkansas, and Loose Goose is set to open in summer of 2024 in Springfield.
“Challenging the limits of Springfield’s cocktail culture for the last 20 years has been a labor-intensive dream come true for us,” Beverage Director Rogan said in a press release. “I’m looking forward to pushing the envelope even further and showcasing my craft for every guest that comes through our door.”
We can’t wait for all the exciting new things Good Spirits & Company is bringing to 417-land!
