'Good Bad and Ugly' Bar Leans into Old West Vibes

Downtown West Chester, Pennsylvania, will get a colorful new addition to its bustling food and drink scene. Stove and Co. Restaurant Group partners Justin Weathers and Joseph Monnich announced the grand opening of Good Bad and Ugly this Thursday, January 27 at 4 p.m. at 158 West Gay Street, underneath Stove and Tap West Chester. This is the first-ever bar-focused concept from the owners/partners of Stove and Tap, Revival Pizza Pub, Al Pastor, and DePaul's Table.

This opening represents the group's fifth grand opening during the pandemic as it expands across the Main Line and Western Suburbs. Good Bad and Ugly (GBU) is Stove and Co.'s playful and modern twist on an old-fashioned underground dive bar, which will serve up drinks, beers, bar food, vibes, games, music, and sports five nights a week.

The 2,000 square foot space features seating for 52 people, including at the giant 80-plus-foot-long bar. Games include West Chester's only pool table, plus foosball and shuffleboard. Modern day cowboy vibes take inspiration from old-fashioned spaghetti westerns and bring together elements from the owners' love of Clint Eastwood and Quentin Tarantino movies.

Bar bites include fare executed by Stove and Tap West Chester's executive chef Yasser Wolf. Opening hours will be Wednesday from 4 p.m. to midnight; Thursday and Friday from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m.; Saturday from noon to 2 a.m.; and Sunday from noon to midnight. The kitchen closes at 11 p.m. nightly. Happy Hour will run nightly from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

"Good Bad and Ugly in West Chester is our homage to something that we all love: a good dive bar," Weathers says. "We wanted to put our own Stove and Tap twist on a dive bar with delicious food in baskets that you eat with your hands, games to play, TVs to watch, sports to cheer for, well-made drinks, a great mix of beers on tap and by the can, and design that is sensory overload to keep the energy light and fun. We want a spot that you can come as you are—whether it's dressed from work, casual from home, or stylish for a night on the town. We want to tell all sides of the story—the good, the bad, and the ugly. All are welcome and invited. We're bringing the fun back to the bar game in our region but with the same level of quality you would expect from us."

Weathers adds, "Good Bad and Ugly is underneath Stove and Tap West Chester, and it was formerly a nightclub with a much different focus. We want to create a fun dive bar environment that is hip, clean, colorful, and modern."
