Pub on Passyunk East opens new room, calls it the ‘Conclave’

The POPE has opened the expansion into its old office, which we told you about a few weeks back. Drink Philly spoke with owner Dennis Hewlett, who said that the room has about 20 seats and can be reserved for private parties.

When we first wrote about it, a bartender called it a lounge. Hewlett called it the Conclave. Hmm. Conclave, that sounds familiar…

Either Dave G is a psychic, or someone was inspired.

We left a message for Hewlett yesterday to see if the power of suggestion nudged him toward that name, but he hasn’t gotten back to us yet.

Either way, the room is nice addition. Glad to see they’re taking advantage of the Passyunk Avenue frontage with those windows that will open wide onto the street.
