Monday, Nov. 3 at 4 p.m. is the target opening of City Tap House Logan Square - Brian Harrington and Gary Cardi's revamp of their Public House in Two Logan Square into a branch of their University City pub.
It will run dinner only for the first week, and then pick up lunch and brunch.
Morrissey Design's redo is extensive. Most obviously, they carved out two semiprivate areas in the corners to serve large parties.
Forty beer taps, 2 cask engines and 75 bottles/cans are on the list at the main bar, whose 18-by-9-foot video wall is anything but subtle.
The partners were at Year 9, toward the end of their lease at what years ago was Dock Street, and realized the extensive residential and commercial development underway in the neighborhood, including a new Comcast tower and a new apartment building at 1919 Market.
They reupped for 20 years and spent the whole summer stripping the space down completely before putting it back together.
