Fresh off his acquisition of the Boot and Saddle up Broad Street, Four Corners Management has struck a deal to operate the Dolphin Tavern next to the Broad and Tasker subway stop, according to a source with direct knowledge of the deal.

The goal for opening, according to the source, is Dec. 1. Though that seems blatantly unrealistic, we challenge you to get it done anyway, Avram! Here are some pictures of the inside, which they plan to preserve for the most part. More details below the pics.
|Those pedestals inside the bar are supposedly staying, meaning they might still have go-go dancers|
|Back room is a lot bigger than we remember|
|The details on the walls are all staying|
|These panels apparently will light up, because those are definitely new light bulbs behind them (below)|
|Maybe to light up a dance floor? They already have an existing entertainment license|

So, here’s what we got out of the source: They’re keeping the name and the sign. They’re keeping the pedestals behind the bar, and they’re installing a spiral staircase at the back, apparently to provide a dressing room upstairs for the dancers? We’ve left a message with Four Corners, so hopefully we’ll get some confirmation on that soon.
