The shed was the subject of a torrent of complaints on this site and on Facebook after news of its existence emerged back in July. Apparently, those complaints made their way to the city, which moved in shortly after and issued at least five complaints against the bar.
The South Broad Street Neighbors Association’s president, Peter Zutter, told Plan Philly that he’d been told that the vestibule would be torn down by “the end of the summer.”
Apparently, that didn’t mean the unofficial end of the summer (aka Labor Day) since it was still there yesterday, according to the above photo snapped by a loyal reader.
Meanwhile, we haven’t actually been inside the Dolphin since they made that addition. Our guess was that it was a way of diminishing noise heard by neighbors. What’s your take?
