Berber is being imported by David Suro and Oscar Serrano. You probably know them Tequila’s Restaurant and Siembra Azul Tequila. They’ll be at Jose Pistola’s this Sunday starting at 10 p.m. to midnight as Pistola’s pours Berber’s beers and of course some tequila as well.
Even better, there will be some specials as well.
Over the weekend a photo posted to Twitter announced that Joe Gunn and his Jose Pistola’s crew was coming to Fishtown. Gunn, Casey Parker and Jose Pistola’s chef Adan Trinidad are taking over the former Bubba’s BBQ at 19 W Girard Avenue.
Michael Klein reports that the new beer bar serving Mexican food will be called Sancho Pistola’s. The bar is aiming to open before the Super Bowl with a menu that includes a raw bar, tacos, entrees and Mexican-Asian fused carnitas buns.
Sancho Pistola’s isn’t the only Mexican restaurant heading to the area. Calexico, an outfit out of New York will be opening at Frankford and Girard after their 16th and South Street location opens.

Jose Pistola’s co-owner Casey Parker loves Monk’s Cafe and its proprietors Tom Peters and Fergus Carey. So much so he’s offering half-off beers for anyone who comes in dressed as either today. But that wasn’t his only Halloween plan for the day. He’s put a Monk’s Cafe costume on his 15th Street’s bar’s facade, complete with awning, mock neon and beer bottles.
