Fort Wayne, Indiana is no Chicago or New York when it comes to city dining. However, thanks to the opening of Chop's Wine Bar there is no longer a need to leave Fort Wayne to experience the wonderful metropolitan ambiance you would find there. Hidden next to its parent restaurant, Chop's Wine Bar provides a unique and urban dining adventure that will not disappoint.
Brian Shreffler, Chop's Wine Bar former chef, had a vision for an “old-school,” speakeasy bar Fort Wayne style. For two years, Brian tossed around ideas to develop a trendy wine bar next to the main restaurant. The space next door was the perfect place for this extraordinary concept; however, it was a matter of convincing the owners of the Vitamin store to relocate. Graciously, the Vitamin store granted Chops’ wish and construction began in October of 2009.
