Message to Dolphin Tavern: Neighbors Are Unimpressed With “Overgrown Outhouse”

The South Broad Street Neighborhood Association has taken its ire to Facebook, where it has posted a photo of the strange shed that sits outside of Dolphin Tavern. The bar is part of Avram Hornik’s Four Corners Management, which also owns Drinkers, Lucy’s Hat Shop and the soon-to-reopen Boot and Saddle. Four Corners is staging a major South Broad revitalization effort, which is much appreciated. But the shed outside does look, from the photo, out of place.

The Association posted the photo, above, along with these words:

The Dolphin Tavern has a new addition. Besides being dog ugly, it was built without zoning and permits. If you care about how our neighborhood looks, call them and tell them what an eye sore they have created.

Here’s what the commenters have to say so far, including realtor Fred Glick, who calls the outbuilding an “overgrown outhouse.”

We put a called in to Four Corners Management but didn’t receive a return phone call by press time.

    Welcome to Philadelphia, Mr. Soutland. A city known for its negativity. If you walk across the Delaware on the pontoons of enthusiasm, you will encounter a city called Camden, AKA East Philly, AKA former murder capital of America. In the future, I would suggest you ensure that journalists spell your catchphrase correctly: “Phellowship of the Miserable.”
