Foodies and historical building buffs alike can go have a mini celebration tonight as the Old Original Bookbinders on 2nd and Walnut has re-opened as a new bar. Foobooz reports that in spite of the change, the venue is still very much Bookbinders-ish.

Sayeth Foobooz:

The exterior is definitely still Bookbinders. Only a small square sign reveals that “Bookies” is now Olde Bar. The rest of the signage, century old stained glass, banquettes, lighting and flooring all harken back to John Taxin’s seafood house. The menu won’t feel all that different either.

For a full gallery of the newly opened space (and the new menu!), check out Foobooz’s post.
