Goodnight Hospitality’s Latest Marches Into Montrose Tomorrow

Apple Tini

Setbacks and pivots have defined 2020 — especially for those in the restaurant world. But the team at Goodnight Hospitality has some good news to share: MARCH, or a version of it, will finally debut tomorrow.


The Lounge at MARCH opens with an abbreviated — but thoughtful, and oh-so-delicious — Mediterranean-inspired menu. For now, guests can purchase a ticketed reservation via Resy for $48. This includes a half-glass of Champagne and a beverage from the signature cocktail menu, plus a handful of Mediterranean bites, both savory and sweet. There are supplemental groupings of dishes that patrons can order — each of the Harvest, Pasture or Tide sets comes with four plates inspired by seasonal vegetables, meat or seafood, respectively. There's also caviar service, with accoutrements like spiced egg yolk and cauliflower crème.

And for those who want to kick back with a glass, there are plenty for the taking. The sommelier team here is made up of GM and beverage director Mark Sayre, and sommeliers Skyler Ring, Christina Walther and Alexandra Faulkner. The four of them have carefully curated the impressive 11,000-bottle cellar, and if folks want to take a bottle or two home, that can be arranged, too.

House made Vermouth

On the cocktail side, bar manager Alex Negranza sought to create a menu of options that feel familiar but still adventurous. Take the Tini Apple, for example: Made with vermouth, mint and cinnamon, it falls scrumptiously in the middle of a spectrum from apple martini to sugary-sweet cocktail.

The intimate, 700-square-foot Lounge is designed to be cozy (but not too cozy — only 16 allowed at a time!). It's anchored by a custom chandelier of Murano glass that hangs above the bar, as well as bold works of art. And a 1960s Champagne cart, designed by Italian furniture designer Aldo Tura, is among the eye-catching pieces that define the space.
