Montco bar seen on 'Bar Rescue' closes
Osteria Calabria, aka The O.C. and Plush, had to leave because of the sale of its building.
The Glenside bar that Spike TV's Jon Taffer and the Bar Rescue show redid last year has closed.
Osteria Calabria - a name seldom used for the bar previously known as Plush - had its last call over the weekend.
Business was not the reason for The O.C.'s closing. The building was sold.
Supposedly - and a message for the owner is pending for more info - the bar will resurface in the area.
Management was never too keen about Taffer's upgrades. In a celebrated event off camera, workers restored the old bar to its spot in the restaurant.
Meanwhile, Glenside is getting ready to burst with new dining spots, including a restaurant in the Roberts Block building, next to the Glenside train station, and Dino's Backstage, a supper club under construction next to the Keswick Theater. (Dino is Dino Cataldi, who was one of the partners in the mid-'80s/early '90s hit Napoleon Cafe, which moved from Port Richmond to Center City.)
