Craft's Teddy Sourias and director of operations Alex Bokulich also have Cinder at 15th and Locust Streets, Finn McCool's at 12th and Sansom Streets, and Uptown Beer Garden at 1735 Market St.

The first floor has an open layout and 23-foot vaulted ceilings, a mezzanine, large windows that open out to Chestnut and Juniper Streets,  and exposed brick and historical detail in the original ceiling work.  It will have a large main bar on the main level, and auxiliary bars on the first and second floors.

Menu will include Carolina pulled pork, Kansas City ribs, West Texas brisket, and California tri-tip, plus local, sustainable produce from such vendors as Greensgrow, Fair Food, and Baldor.
