Sports Bar Coming To Reading Terminal

As we hinted at in today’s Metro the Public House people are taking over the Independence Brew Pub and installing a sports bar, the Field House.

THE OWNERS of the Public House (18th & Cherry) will soon open the Field House (1150 Filbert), a giant, high-end sports bar on the site of the former Independence Brew Pub, which closed abruptly last month.
Brian Harrington confirmed yesterday that he and partner Gary Cardi signed a lease last week on the property and are hoping for a Nov. 15 opening.

They’re going for a similar American fare menu to their popular Public House, and Harrington says “it’s not your onion rings and frozen appetizers type of place.” The bar will have a raw bar and the pair hope to attract conventioneers as well as catering to a local crowd.
