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.Â DescribedÂ as â€œTriaâ€™s fun little cousin,â€Â BibaÂ 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 andÂ 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.
