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.

A new box clad in white siding has been built on the sidewalk outside the Dolphin at 1539 S. Broad St.

The pics come from a faithful reader. Thanks!

The structure means going through two doors to get inside, so we assume it was built to keep the noise level down as patrons go in and out of the place all night long.

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.

Jumping at 6:30

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?
