Wine bar planned for South Street

It's called Jet, and the owner's day job frequently is the pits.

Wine bar planned for South Street

Here's very early word about Jet Wine Bar, intended for a storefront at 1525 South St. sometime this fall.

Managing partner Jill Weber envisions Jet as a small wine bar/cafe with a simple selection of food.

The idea, she says, is to bridge the gap between the BYOBs (Pumpkin, Novita, Jamaican Jerk Hut, Apamante, L'Aube) and the bars (Bob & Barbara's) in Center City-meets-Graduate Hospital.

Weber is a well-traveled archaeologist who does a lot of work in Syria.
