If you’re a craft beer fan in Chandler AZ, you’ve probably visited The Wandering Tortoise, a 2-year-old beer shop and taproom on the Indian School corridor near Arcadia.

Now owner Justin Evans is opening a second location in Chandler AZ named The Sleepy Whale.  The Sleepy Whale will soon be located on the northwest corner of Arizona and Frye in downtown Chandler Arizona.  It will share the Chandler AZ corner with the first East Valley location of another popular Phoenix-born concept: Gadzooks Enchiladas & Soup.

The Chandler lot, which formerly was home to a couple of automotive-related businesses, is part of Chandler’s designated Chandler Downtown Entertainment & Revitalization District.

The Sleepy Whale in Chandler will occupy a 2,400-square-foot building including a  1,100-square-foot extended covered patio. It will seat approximately 110 inside and 50 outside!  The restaurant / bar will offer draft beer, bottled beer, and wine for consumption on the premises or even to go for Chandler residents.

Gadzooks, which debuted in midtown Phoenix in 2013 and added an Arcadia location in 2016, will occupy a separate 2,100-square-foot building on the Chandler AZ lot.  Owner Aaron Pool’s unique concept features ‘build-your-own’ enchiladas, tacos, and 2 soups…tortilla and spicy potato corn chowder. Chandler AZ residents agree, both are very good!

The Sleepy Whale is targeting a Chandler location opening by the end of December.  No word yet on when Gadzooks expects to open its Chandler location; however, they promise it is coming soon!
