Things are looking up at the new Pod Philly hotel at 19th and Ludlow Streets, just off Market.
Oct. 23 marks the debut of El Techo, the 11th-floor roof deck/taqueria/bar.
For now, El Techo is open for drinks only starting at 5 p.m. Wednesday to Saturday. Food, in the form of a simple taqueria menu, is on the way.
No worries about “weather permitting” here. This is a year-round operation. The roof is retractable; see video here.
