Welcome to the Naberhood!
Great Fun Makes Great Nabers!
In a society where technology and smartphones enable web chat and texting instead of talking and laughing, Nabers, a local Chandler restaurant, is bound and determined to trend with real live human interaction. You know, conversation, story-telling and eye contact! Let’s go back to knowing our neighbors and the good ol’ days when you stopped for a friendly chat, bite to eat, cold beer, great glass of wine and a smile.
That’s the concept behind Nabers, Chandler restaurant and family owned business, founded by Dick Nenaber and his wife, Pam. They’re the kind of neighborly people you could borrow a cup of sugar from. And Nabers is the kind of place where life’s melody is sweetened with a variety of live entertainment, the food and drink refined and comforting amid the cozy environment of Americana casual chic. It’s a place residents of North Chandler and Ahwatukee have sorely missed, a neighborhood niche for meeting and enjoying friends, family and business associates from any neck of the woods.
Concept behind this Chandler Restaurant
Nabers “music, bar & eats” says it all. A casual dining, bar and live music establishment, Nabers evokes a “Cheers”-like atmosphere . Our friendly staff serves up a chef-driven menu of fresh, from-scratch modern yet classic comfort food paired with craft beers and interesting wines, inside or out on the party-sized patio porch. A great spot for meeting the neighbors for happy hour, or the big game – cozy, conversation-inducing seating is surrounded by a refined, Americana-themed décor. Local talent, from live current and classic country and rock bands to fun acoustic solo/duo acts perform Wednesdays through Saturdays at this Chandler restaurant unlike any other.
Giving back to patrons and the community is a key ingredient to Nabers’ plans. Not only is Nabers a local family owned business that supports local purveyors, its “Nabers Helping Neighbors” community outreach program supports the Wounded Warriors Project and other active military/veterans and service personnel organizations. Nabers also offers unique, fun events benefitting the Chandler and Ahwatukee communities – such as free holiday gift wrapping – and supports neighboring businesses with its “Good Naber” bulletin board for posting patron business cards, photos, notices and announcements.
About the Owners
A graduate of Arizona State University, Dick Nenaber is the “Mayor of the Naberhood.” While in college (more years ago than he cares to admit), he tended and managed a local Tempe bar, followed upon graduation with a career path that took him through decades of success as an executive in the insurance industry. But his passion has always remained rooted in the family owned restaurant business his parents started in South Dakota, and now he has come full circle to fulfill his dream of having his own restaurant/bar with Nabers in Chandler. Dick, along with his wife, Pam – a successful businesswoman, health care senior executive and 2012 Gilbert Business Woman of the Year – are proud to offer a friendly, inviting neighborhood place where friends gather.
