Chaplin's Restaurant & Bar is a ramen house and cocktail bar based on silent film that emulates the 1930’s Golden age of Hollywood. Experience an exciting and energetic atmosphere where people go to be seen, be sociable, have fun and experience life in a playful and theatrical way.

The Décor represents expressions of old movie posters stripped down over time. Layers of silent film posters expressed throughout the interior design. The “Opium Den” bar on the second level is a warm and inviting bar encased with floor to ceiling windows but dim lit and shaded by trees for privacy. Enjoy popcorn, cocktails, and steaming bowls of ramen while viewing flickering black and white silent film projections on the wall. The main level bar is filled with energy and the bustling energy that replicates the 1930’s.

Chef Myo Htun, a native of Burma, cooked under a Master Ramen Chef in Tokyo, Japan for close to 30 years. He continues to create the same dishes that he cooked in Japan at Chaplin’s. Co-Owners of Chaplin’s and Wilder Bros, Ari and Micah Wilder, created a playful and progressive beverage program that compliments Chef Myo’s cuisine. Every time you walk through the doors at Chaplin’s, expect to be transported to an era that shaped a culture based on entertainment and fancy!
