Pop-up bar serving compliments instead of drinks to support the Oregon District

Local News

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) Heather and Krissy Stiver are sisters who drove from Georgia to the Miami Valley to host a pop-up bar at Ned Peppers.

Their mission is to entertain and bring healing to those impacted by the Oregon District mass shooting.

But if you’re looking for a drink from their bar, you’ll have a hard time finding one. The bar is a piece of performance art titled The Complimentary Bar. The sisters set-up shop to serve compliments and smiles to their “customers” across the country and even in Canada.

The Stiver sisters were brought to Dayton through a family member with a close local connection.

“Our cousin Wendy Stiver is a Major in the [Dayton] police department and she said after the shooting that Dayton could use some love. This seemed like a great opportunity and a good fit for us to reach out and help the community,” explained Heather Stiver.

The Stiver’s say they are hoping to help Ned Peppers bar and the Oregon District as a whole reclaim their area after the August mass shooting attack.

“I think now, more than ever, the world needs this positivity and this kindness and it just develops into a great ripple effect,” said Heather.

The Stiver sisters will stay in the Oregon District through Friday night.
