The Chimes will temporarily close its flagship location just outside the LSU North Gate in July to begin renovations that will add a rooftop bar and dining area, says Marianne Hood, restaurant president. The restaurant will be closed for around three weeks as the lion’s share of the renovation takes place, but will be open as the work is being finalized. Neither the closure date nor the estimated completion date have been released. The renovations will add around 50 seats to the restaurant’s capacity, Hood says. The Chimes has been open over 25 years and has two additional locations, one Coursey Boulevard and another in Covington.
