“We are incredibly grateful to be able to introduce Loch Bar to the city of Philadelphia. We have always been excited by the art, culture, and culinary scene that defines Philadelphia, and feel that Loch Bar will be a welcomed addition and natural fit for the market,” said Alex Smith, founder and president of Atlas Restaurant Group in a press release. “We are bringing something new to the table, both literally and figuratively, and are eager for Philadelphians and visitors alike to immerse in the full Loch Bar, and by extension Atlas Restaurant Group’s dining experience.” 

Loch Bar Philadelphia – the fourth of its kind in the country – will be housed in a roughly 5,200-square-foot open-concept space with seating for up to 170 people, surrounded by 13.5-foot floor-to-ceiling windows that offer commanding views of Broad Street and Kimmel Center.  

Its menu incorporates seafood dishes that have become synonymous with the Mid-Atlantic region such as a raw bar with numerous oyster varieties. Meanwhile, the beverage program boasts an expansive whiskey list, local craft beer, handcrafted cocktails, and more.

Bringing the food and ambiance to its crescendo will be a lineup of local artists playing seven nights a week, creating a wonderful parallel and nod to the history of the restaurant’s location as the original site of Philadelphia International Records and what many call the birthplace of “The Sound of Philadelphia.”

In a statement, Carl Dranoff, president and CEO of Dranoff Properties, the development group behind Arthaus Condominiums said, “Not only will Loch Bar serve as a home-base dining spot for Arthaus residents, but also a landmark dining destination for business and community leaders, theatergoers, neighborhood residents, tourists, and more, bringing a new life and energy to the Avenue of the Arts. We are thankful to have played a role in bringing Loch Bar to Philadelphia and in introducing Atlas Restaurant Group as they embark on this new market.”
