"The Wicked Wolf Cocktail Bar Connects with Long Beach Community"
The owners of The Wicked Wolf, Wrigley’s newest cocktail bar, have already found multiple ways to connect with the surrounding Long Beach area and businesses.
Judging from the tiny window with which The Wicked Wolf has been open and already connected with the surrounding neighborhood while dishing out some genuinely solid libations, one would be hard-pressed to believe that owners and husband-and-wife team Thea Mercouffer and George Wolfe weren’t really intent on being in the bar business.
“We were blessed to be able to sell our longtime home in Venice after having an empty nest and wanted to start our own business, do something more hands on and commercial,” Wolfe, who is a writer and whose wife is a documentarian, said. “And we were genuinely open to anything while looking last summer across of nearly all of SoCal: mini-markets, car washes, restaurants… Wherever we thought there was something interesting and this place really charmed us.”
