The owner of Loco Pez, the popular Fishtown taqueria and bar, is now under contract to take over the Twi-Lite Lounge space and open a new restaurant in the location.

More from Foobooz:

Beckham says that the concept is still up in the air but that it will be a restaurant. The scope will come as they get inside the building and can understand what the building can support. Beckham is also keen on neighborhood feedback, a wise move as just a half-block away, neighbors fought to prevent the Pub & Kitchen team from opening an all-day cafe back in 2011. That battle ended with the neighbors quietly buying the building for themselves.

The Twi-Lite property will be a different situation from the P&K team’s Bedford Cafe, as the bar is currently operating as a bar. Beckham tells us he’s already reached out to several neighbors who seem excited to see the Twi-Lite get new life.
