Avram Hornik After the Dolphin Tavern

The Passyunk Post is reporting that Avram Hornik is looking to reopen the Dolphin Tavern in short order. The sometimes awesome bar with occasional striptease has been closed since the summer.

Unclear is whether Hornik will continue the go-go past, either similar to what the Dolphin had going or more like what the Trestle Inn is today. We’ve got calls out to the involved parties and will update this post when we get more details.

Hornik’s empire has been rapidly expanding. He owns Lucy’s Hat Shop, Noche, Drinkers Pub, Drinkers Tavern, Drinkers West, Morgans Pier, Ortlieb’s Lounge and Union Transfer. He’s also working to restore the long abandoned Boot & Saddle, also on South Broad Street.

    I heard he is going to change the name to ‘Douches’ to let his typical patrons know it’s OK for them to go there.

    So very, very, very disappointing. RIP to one of the best actual bars in Philadelphia, the Dolphin.
