First Pics: Take a look inside the Boot and Saddle, which opened last night

Two years in the making, the Boot and Saddle finally opened last night with a concert benefiting the Street Tails Animal Rescue. Tonight will be the first ticketed event, with a show by The Both, which is made up of Aimee Mann and Ted Leo.

We made our way inside to snap a few icognito pictures, so forgive the dark, blurred images. But hey, you get the idea.

UPDATED: Work’s about to start on refurbishing the Boot and Saddle sign

UPDATE: There’s a new, earlier opening date – Monday Sept. 9. And Philly.com has a couple details about the plan for the food: “The kitchen will be open from 5 p.m. until 2 a.m. seven days a week, the bar will feature 10 rotating draft (craft) beer options and the backroom, which will host musical performances and dance parties, will open at 8 p.m. with shows starting at 9 p.m.”


Our eagle-eyed contributor Dan Berlin spotted some interesting action at the Boot and Saddle yesterday.

Scaffolding was being installed out front of the bar at 1131 S. Broad St., which would suggest that the promised refurbishment of that gloriously kitschy neon sign is about to begin.

First Pics: Inside the new Dolphin Tavern

Step inside the newly re-opened Dolphin Tavern on Broad and Tasker streets, and darkness envelopes you as the door swings shut behind you.

After the first couple blinks, the place gives way to a strangely similar, yet somehow fresh-looking decor with the long bar surrounded by stools, wood paneling, and portraits of vintage burlesque dancers lining the walls.

Did we mention it was really dark in there?
