The bottle shop at the Di Bruno Bros. location at 9th and Chestnut is getting close to opening. Groundswell Design (who you know from their work at Spruce Street Harbor Park and the PHS Pop-Up Beer Gardens) installed the tables and chairs last night and the beer is being ordered.
Once the license approvals are set, the Bottle Shop at the Franklin will softly launch with beer. Then expect a grand opening in mid to late June when the shop gets its own menu of cheese flights, charcuterie boards and more.
We can’t wait.

Ko Ko Blue and Fat Cat’s Creamsicle ice cream sandwiches. Only through the weekend.
