Legend has it the name came from the gaggle of Geese that frequented the adjacent river bottom sloughs. Now, the gaggle is comprised of people and they’re attracted to a much different type of watering hole. Establishments like The Dapper Pig, Bokeh Lounge, and Mo’s House satisfy the crowds in between retail shops and art galleries. This affordable Victorian neighborhood is known for it’s vintage charm and strong sense of community and preservation. Grab a snack at Amy's Fountain View Mini Market and head to Goosetown Park with the kids or sit by the Haynie's Corner Fountain and take in the beautiful architecture of the historic Alhambra Theater.
Welcome to Mo's House.
At Mo's House you are family. Everyone is welcome and greeted with a "hey yal". It is a place where you respect one another, never question yourself, cuss a little, and love deep. Fine cocktails, craft beer, wines, and good times can be found here. It's the perfect place to bring a date, chat with friends or meet new ones while checking out the newest local artist. Pack a lunch or order in, they don't really care. They just want you to come ready to have a good time and feel like you are at home.
