Avance starts happy hour

The bar at Avance, 1523 Walnut St.

Avance - Justin Bogle's coolly elegant American destination at 1523 Walnut St. - has started happy hour at its downstairs bar.

Unlike most happy hours, Avance's runs in two shifts weekdays - from 4 to 5:30 p.m. and then from 9 to 10:30 p.m.

Bar manager Bradford Lawrence offers a few discounted beers ($5 crafts), a few discounted specialty cocktails ($10 rather than $13), a punch of the week, and discounted select wines (one sparkling, two whites, two reds).


On Sunday, April 6, The Inquirer's Craig LaBan reviews Avance, the ambitious restaurant from chef Justin Bogle at 1523 Walnut St. How many bells do you think it will be awarded?

There are discounts on the cheese plate, duck terrine, oysters, and a hot, fried, off-the-menu snack, on the order of croquettes.

Plus, there's that lamb burger that everyone seems to be talking about.
