Biba Aiming for Late August Opening

Tria’s Jon Myerow will be debuting a unique concept for University City this August. Biba Wine Bar will be opening at 3131 Walnut Street and featuring wine, beer, cheese, charcuterie and chocolate. Described as “Tria’s fun little cousin,” Biba will offer guests a sophisticated, distraction-free place that aims to be a haven for social interaction. Remind us how this is different than Tria?

It is a bit smaller than a Tria, 32-seat bar with a 12-seat outdoor patio. 26 wines will be available by the glass and 10 beers will be offered, including a rotating cask selection.

Biba is located in the Left Bank building and will be open Sunday through Thursday from noon until midnight, and Friday and Saturday from noon until 1 am.

Update: Looks like early September is more reasonable.
