Founding Fathers Sports Bar & Grill is the name of the upcoming project coming to 1612-18 South Street. The bar will aim to please the neighborhood, especially its sports fans with thirteen or so TVs and a menu by chef Al Anderson, who has previously worked at Johnny Brenda’s and South Philly Taproom.

Owners Jon Adler and Sam Brouwer are aiming to open the spacious mid-block bar by mid-November.

Liquor License Spotted on South Street West

1612 South StreetThere is a new liquor license application up in the window at 1612 South Street, a mix-use project that’s nearing completion on the growing South Street West corridor. Jon Adler, who some may know as the former proprietor of Beauty Shop Cafe, is one of the partners in the project. He was tight-lipped about exactly the project will be but does acknowledge it is aiming to be a welcoming place to the neighborhood. Something he certainly achieved at his coffee shop at 20th and Fitzwater.

The restaurant space includes 38-feet of South Street frontage and 5,000 square feet of space including the ground floor and basement.

Adler promises more details as the concept moves along.
