INDIANAPOLIS—It didn't take long to find a replacement for the Scotty's Brewhouse on the Butler University campus that closed in July.
By the end of October, Chatham Tap expects to be open in the same space, at Sunset Avenue and Lake Road. That's just down the block from Hinkle Fieldhouse.
The will be Chatham Tap's third local location. It opened on Massachusetts Avenue 12-years ago and in Fishers three-years after that.
"We are excited to welcome Chatham Tap to our campus," said Butler Vice President Bruce Arick. "Both for the Butler community and our neighbors, I believe this space will be a great environment for people to create valuable connections and build relationship—all while enjoying meals from a quality menu."
David Pentzien, one of three Chatham Tap owners, said the restaurant is designed to feel like a friendly neighborhood pub. "Rooted in English culture, it caters especially to soccer fans looking for a place to watch their favorite games."
Chatham Tap describes its food and beverages as "extensive offering of craft and import beers, along with a menu focused on a wide range of sandwiches and starters."
About 50 people are expected to work at the restaurant, which plans to expand its outdoor seating area. While the normal daily opening time is 11 a.m., Chatham Tap will also open early for breakfast for key weekend soccer matches.
