Some students love Chester’s Place for the crackling wood fire on a fall evening. Others gravitate towards the space for its unique tavern layout as they socialize with friends. But as of this week, there is one new common reason to gather in Lane . . . a popular student-run coffee house known as Claymore Cafe has moved into the space, expanding its hours and offerings to students.
With new hours (open until 2 a.m.) the on-campus tavern quickly became the place to be on Wednesday night as students strolled in and out and caught some live music performances by Chad Wimberly, Tom Reagan and Naama Mendes. Wimberly, a student performer on Claymore’s opening night, commented on the turnout: “Students are excited about the new Claymore location . . . its even cozier with their offerings here.”
