Chef Joseph's is focussing on what we do best, Spirit, Food & Music! Memorable, Romantic and Friendly Supper Club Evenings and Casually Hip Champagne Brunch with Live Music. Great Drinks, Fabulous Food and Live Local Music, at Chef Joseph's, every night is date night!

Our New Hours:
Wednesday - Saturday 4pm - 10pm, Saturday & Sunday 10am - 2pm.

We Don't Discriminate.
To our regular guests, it may seem silly for us to make such a statement. You all know. We have never believed in exclusivity. When 111 Cakery refused to serve a gay couple, we contacted them and asked directly what the truth of the situation was. Once they informed us, we told them we would no longer be doing business with them. When someone asked us to attend a gay only event, we asked if we could bring our straight friends. When they said "no" we did not attend. Our business is about inclusiveness. We are all the same. Come enjoy some fun around the Piano and you'll get it.
