Cozy with just a little modern flair, Champp's offers an extensive menu of whiskeys, after-dinner cocktails and martinis. No boxes of pre-made gunk: Appetizers include chicken satay and chicken wings. Brick walls, framed sports and pop-art prints, oak tables and metal-top bar all combine in a balance of den-like comfort and sleek design. The irregular shape of the establishment with rounded corners allows for optimal viewing of the HD-TVs inset in the walls. It's clean, cool and inviting. The installation of both carpeting and tile minimize the cavernous echo effects, an important consideration because the games and crowds are plenty noisy enough.
