Psst, want a phone booth?

Elephant and Castle has closed on 18th Street between Chestnut and Market. The British-style pub has been a fixture on the block for almost twenty years. The Sonesta Hotel (formerly Crowne Plaza) which housed the pub is undergoing extensive renovations which include a new art gallery, bar and lobby. The E&C wasn’t part of these upgrade plans but offer the hotel another space to upgrade.
