Mandey Brown already delivered one of Chapel Hill's favorite funky spots with Zog's Art Bar & Pool Hall. Now, just one floor below, she's joined forces with business parter Jedd Tyler, and they're hoping lightning strikes twice with Imbibe, a restaurant, taproom, and bottle shop. It's a chill hangout where guests can ask the bartender to recommend a beer, wine, cider, or cold coffee from the copper taps. Or you can peruse the shelves and coolers for bottles of wine, sake, or 22-ounce beers to crack open—no corkage fee required.
Imbibe's casual menu reflects a commitment to mixing and matching globe-trotting influences. Innovative offerings include gumbo-topped Filthy Fries, paneer tacos, and the Thai Me a River pizza with peanut curry sauce. Periodic educational events will help you learn more about wine and beer from knowledgable experts.
