Chime & Stave Kitchen & Bar is a neighborhood craft cocktail and dining destination. Enjoy American inspired, artisan meals made with farm-to-table ingredients while sipping craft beer and cocktails in a rustic, easy to relax atmosphere suitable for every occasion. Our whiskey bar is inspired by the art of cooperage and the fine whiskeys that come from the barrels that Master Cooper’s produce. So, what is a chime and a stave? A chime is the beveled edge at the top, and bottom, of a barrel. It is made up of the ends of all the staves coming together. The staves are the heart of the barrel. Created from oak that must be straight, knot free, and properly aged, they are shaped and fitted together in a precise pattern that will render the finished barrel watertight.
