Aperol Spritz 2 

An Aperol Spritz is just perfect for sitting back and relaxing at Big Chicks!


Sunday to Saturday 7 days a week 5pm - 9 pm, last order at 8:30pm.

We follow strict protocols and are working with the goal of safety for everyone.  

We have installed a NASA approved air scrubber in each room of the premises. This is an air intake that pulls all the inside air in and passes it through HEPA filters, a UV light chamber, then onto a platinum surface. It kills all bacteria, fungus and viruses. It is used by NASA for their enclosed spaces. It kills H1N1 and Covid.

We wear masks and visors for safety, gloves where applicable. Everything you touch, from the salt and pepper shakers to the menus is sanitized after single use.

Social distancing is a must as is a mask for entry, and walking inside premises.

There is abundant hand sanitizer, free gloves if needed. Disposable masks are available for a $1. All of this is to keep everyone safe and healthy.
