“Bar Rescue” Converts Glenside Bar to Osteria Calabria
Last week Jon Taffer broke Lickety Split into two concepts for his “Bar Rescue” show. Downstairs is now Alleged Pizza and upstairs is 2nd State Lounge. Last night Taffer and company revealed the remade Plush on Keswick Avenue in Glenside. That spot is now an Italian themed bar and cafe, Osteria Calabria.
A post on Plush’s Facebook page sums up the changes:
As the big reveal of our new bar approaches, I want to take the time to thank Jon Taffer and the entire Bar Rescue crew for this incredible opportunity. Aside from providing us with a new concept and look, they have touched us in the most profound way.I cannot begin to express my gratitude. I would also like to thank all of our loyal customers for nearly 12 years of support. Plush was a dream come true for us and could not have been possible without you. We look forward to another 12 years and truly hope the we can surpass all of your expectations. We launch our new bar Sunday night. Do stop by to see the amazing transformation of the bar. Menu provided by chef Nick Liberato. A true culinary professional. Drinks provided by Mia Mastroianni, mixologist extraordinare. Onward and upward. Hope to see a lot of faces, new and old….From the bottom of my heart, Thank you.
The new season of Bar Rescue begins October 5th. Look for the Philadelphia locations to be featured in late November.
