It was a dark and stormy night, when the Black Cat Tavern on 12th opened on Friday the 13th, May 2016....because, of course...
...and is meow open for business!
We've got a newly renovated, comfy, laid-back atmosphere that's perfect for our rotating art shows, dart team(s), watching retro TV shows & old Sci-Fi movies, hosting special events, and yelling at the TV when our Philly team's football/baseball/puck goes the wrong goshdarn direction!!
But don't let some fancy lights and a shiny new bar-top fool ya... The owners Marlise & Tom are just regular Philly folks, who've struggled to make something of their art school backgrounds, fought tooth and nail and squirreled away their pennies and somehow managed to convince a nice bank to give them a chance & the opportunity to share their love of booze and a good time with everyone.
(They are also awesomely humbled by the warm welcome given by some of the nicest neighbors a bar could ever wish to have!)
Stop in for a drink, pop by for a 6-pack, hunker down to watch the game over a few -- Try out our clever lil cocktail concoctions, maybe check out a new craft beer, and keep comin' back for all the exciting things on the horizon! We're hopin' to have sumthin' good for all ayouz!
