Soon, there will be a new place to drink in Manayunk.
Business partners Mario Di Nenna and Robert Spohn are turning the long-standing Old Eagle Tavern, at 177 Markle Street, which closed in August, into Taps & Bourbon on Terrace. The new bar will open in early January.
Taps & Bourbon on Terrace's primary focus will be on high-end bourbons, bourbon-based cocktails and craft beers. There will be more than 50 different bourbons available , as well as a handful of other spirits.
The new bar also will feature a high-tech, self-service tap system that lets customers pour their own beer.
Taps & Bourbon on Terrace will seat a total of 75 guests, with 25 spots at the bar and 50 at tables. Additionally, sidewalk tables will seat up to 10 guests outside beginning in the spring and a 20-seat back patio will be introduced sometime after opening.
While the exact opening date hasn't been announced yet, we do know the bar's hours. Taps & Bourbon on Terrace will be open Monday and Tuesday from 4 p.m. to 1 a.m., Wednesday and Thursday from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m.
