What’s up with the pile of Coronas in the Red Bone Lounge?

As we were checking out a couple projects near 7th and McKean this week, we couldn’t help but notice the Red Bone Restaurant and Sports Lounge at 2006 S. 7th St.

It’s a new-looking, eye-catching red awning, possibly a positive addition to an otherwise battered stretch of South Philly. Upon closer inspection, the inside is a shit hole.

Unfortunately, the pictures don’t do it justice. There must be thousands of Corona bottles littering the inside of that place.

We couldn’t find a number for the bar, or even anything about the address online. Some permits for minor work on the building were filed in 2009 but nothing since then. City records say the building has been owned by Thomas Smalls and H/W Iserlee (though that doesn’t seem like a person’s name) since 1986, and we couldn’t find any contact information there either.

Anyone know anything about this place? Bet the neighbors really wish they had a civic association to refer this issue to…

    That address, sign advertising bar & apartments, and the load of empty Coronas = lots of illegal aliens. Not a benign situation.

    Sports, breakfast, apartments, that’s how I like to get my Saturday started. Hope it opens soon.

    That’s definitely a new awning so they must be doing something with it, though I wouldn’t hold my breath. If you look at google street view the corona trash is pretty much exactly the same however many years ago that picture was taken.

    this has been like this for years…I have called and
    reported it to L/I. the people who live down there do not know
    about or how to use 311….the city officials don’t care cause it
    is not in their neighborhood..there are a lot of building in south
    philly that look like that but people can not buy them because the
    bank or loan companies own them for default of payment..because we
    are in a very low income bracket people like you are the ones who
    go around the red tape and don’t give the lower income families a
    chance. the awning was just put up there this year…why doesn’t
    someone investigate to who made the awning then they will have a
    name to go on…plain and simple
