Pumping life into the former Landmark Restaurant location, partners Justin Weathers and Joseph Monnich recently introduced a third Stove & Tap location to a prime corner of downtown West Chester. With help from architect Niko Kotopoulos of Nest Studios, the duo completely reworked the interior, giving it a rustic Americana vibe with contrasting woods, Pennsylvania-inspired decor, a stylish 46-foot bar, and high- and low-top seating. “Large windows bring in beautiful light during the daytime, so we wanted to capitalize on that lightness in the design,” says Weathers.
Stove & Tap’s menu leans toward modern gastropub fare. Favorites include the deviled eggs and double-patty Stove Burger. Among the pizzas, the pepperoni with jalapeños and Calabrian chili honey is a real standout.
Libations run the gamut, with seasonals featuring fresh juices and house-made mixes keeping things interesting. Twelve taps pour local and national brews, and the well-curated wine list should keep oenophiles happy.
Downstairs, the GBU (Good, Bad, Ugly) club—a fun take on a dive bar, with music, comedy and more—is set to open later this year.
