We may miss Bump and Q, but now that Mike Stollenwerk’s Fish has moved around the corner (less than 100 feet into a smaller space), a new bar has taken over the corner of 13th and Locust in the heart of the Gayborhood.

Rhino Bar has officially opened today within the Independence Hotel – and it’s touting itself as a gastropub with raw bar. The sleek new space features a menu with “snacks” and “plates” – look for dishes like fried green tomatoes, chile verde and miso-glazed salmon.

In addition to eight beer taps – with lots of craft beers by the bottle – and a liquor list with no shortage of happy hour specials, Rhino also serves root beer floats. In fact, the gastropub will be catering to the late-night crowd with food served until 1 a.m. on weekdays and until 2 a.m. on weekends.

Rhino Bar, 1234 Locust Street, 215-557-4442.
