What's Happening in:  Lower Moyamensing 

First Pics: SouthHouse is officially open in LoMo

SouthHouse, a New American pub concept from Thom Sueta, officially opened its doors last week at 2535 S. 13th St. in Lower Moyamensing.

The new bar/restaurant replaces the former Quattro’s space and has completely revamped the interior, which now boasts a large open floor plan with full view of the inner workings of the kitchen.

Sueta said that SouthHouse can hold 77 people, 60 at the tables and 17 at the long, refinished bar. Seven TVs dot the scene and Sueta mentioned that they are looking to be a destination on gameday.

The new floor plan saw Sueta a crew take down the rear wall and bring the kitchen forward and out in the open. They also cleaned up the vintage tin ceilings and hardwood floors to add to the industrial look, which is complimented by the exposed beams and duct work as well as the light fixtures.

As for the main attraction, Sueta said that brunch will be available Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Currently, SouthHouse is running a lunch menu from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays. A full menu with entrees is expected sometime in January. Be sure to check out the menu at the bottom of the page.

The bar now features a 12-tap system, a new feature as Quattro’s didn’t have draught beer. Sueta said that they’re looking to bring a combination of a neighborhood bar and a craft beer spot to the area and that there will be three mainstays on tap wit the rotating crafts: Yuengling, Miller Lite and PBR. A cider will always be available and their nitro line is currently pouring Guinness.

Sueta mentioned they’ve seen a steady stream of business since their soft opening on Friday and that the neighborhood support has been “tremendous” since the beginning, going back to when it was still in the planning stages. He also said that he’s looking to incorporate more events down the road — possibly karaoke, quizzo and even live music on some nights.

A resident of Girard Estates, Sueta thinks that SouthHouse is perfectly positioned for those in the nearby neighborhood to come and grab a bite or a drink. Given its proximity to the Broad Street Line and multiple bus routes, Sueta thinks that public transit makes it a great destination spot as well for those looking for a change in scenery. For example, SEPTA’s 7 bus runs along Oregon Ave. and travels all the way up to Fairmount.

    I stopped by over the weekend, nice place. Big improvement over when it was Quatro/Cholly-Bears and Nona-Provie “working” the bar.
