Skope Case Study | The Loose Moose Tap & Grill House / The Roosevelt Lounge

Skope – Quality, Reliability, Usability… All That Jazz

It takes hard work to run a speak-easy, let alone two neighbouring venues that seamlessly juxtapose the flip-sides of the Jazz Age while being two of the most happening nightspots on the Gold Coast.

Not only are you managing waiting lists and capacity crowds, but you’re also sweating the details – making sure the Presidential booth lives up to its name and the whiskey choice ranges from de rigueur Bourbons and Ryes to ‘Ole Smoky Apple Pie Moonshine’.

To provide one consistent vibe is hard enough, but two playing off each other is another matter entirely.

That’s why it’s so important for Shannon Deane, part owner of The Loose Moose Tap & Grill House and its neighbour The Roosevelt Lounge, that he can rely on his bar equipment so he can focus on delivering a unique cocktail of sights, sounds and tastes for his clientele.

“We chose SKOPE because we’ve always had SKOPE from day one and never had an issue. We even have a Backbar series at another venue that I installed more than 11 years ago – and it’s never had an issue.”

Skope - Loose Moose

The Loose Moose Tap & Grill House in Broadbeach takes the prohibition era of Al Capone and the twenties flapper, and infuses it with a touch of industrial and steam punk.

Forty-four gallon drums hang as light fixtures and industrial piping runs the length of the walls, while guests tuck into blue collar gourmet favourites like locally sourced Cape Byron Black Angus beef burgers.

But just next door you have The Roosevelt Lounge, a sophisticated post-prohibition-themed cocktail lounge and venue that would put Gatsby to shame.

Taking its name from the US president who ended prohibition in December 1933, the lounge at once compliments and contrasts the grill house by providing a hedonistic, pre-financial crash early thirties vibe as strong as the roaring twenties taking place next door.
