What is a “chop bar”?
A neighborhood spot
A chop bar, in West African parlance, is a roadside bar/restaurant that also serves as a gathering place for the community. One can go there for a meal, coffee in the morning or drinks at night. It is a place where neighbors can meet, share information and ideas, and connect with each other.
When we were considering opening this restaurant, we felt that a chop bar was exactly what this neighborhood needed!
