Philly Live: An Update

The 700 Level went searching for some updates on the Philly Live! project set for a spring opening on the site of the old Spectrum. And like us, they are underwhelmed. The project is being developed by the Cordish Companies who have created similar projects in Baltimore and Louisville among others. Here’s a synopsis of what we know today.

  • 55,000 square foot building
  • Restaurants:
    • Spectrum Grill (high-end steakhouse)
    • Professional Bull Riders Restaurant (Tex-Mex restaurant with a mechanical bull, link to Las Vegas version)
    • German beer hall with the long tables (Baltimore’s Power Plant Live features a Leinenkugel’s Beer Garden)
    • Broad Street Bullies Bar
    • Chickie’s and Pete’s
  • Outdoor performance area with 2,000 person capacity
